In early June, Victoria Siegel died in her parents’ home. The 18-year-old was the daughter of Jackie and David Siegel, who rose to fame after featuring in the 2012 documentary The Queen of Versailles.
There was a lot of speculation about what happened to Victoria. Many believed Victoria died of a prescription drug overdose. Others claimed she committed suicide.
But according to a newly released autopsy report, Jackie and David Siegel’s claims that their daughter did not commit suicide were proven to be true.
Victoria Siegel died of an accidental drug overdose.
The report states, “In consideration of the circumstances surrounding the death, and after examination of the body, toxicology analysis , and review of the available medical records.”
“It is my opinion that the death of Victoria Siegel, an 18-year-old white female found unresponsive in her residence and subsequently transported to the hospital, is the result of methadone and sertraline toxicity. The manner of death is accident.”
The devastated parents sat down with Inside Edition to talk about how they have been coping since losing their daughter.
“As a mother, I can say it’s the most horrible thing I have ever experienced, and I personally have not stepped foot inside the house since Victoria died,” Jackie said.
At her daughter’s funeral, Jackie took photos of the casket, drawing stark criticism from the media.
But the crushed mother said that she was doing anything she could to hold on to the last moments she would be near her daughter.
“It’s my last moment to remember my daughter and that day. I know there’s no book what you should and shouldn’t do at a funeral. I just love my baby so much and I just want every last minute to remember her by,” she explained.
The Siegels founded The Victoria Siegel Foundation, which will help teens struggling with addiction.
