On August 18, Deven Davis passed away. She was only 39 years old.

According to autopsy results obtained by TMZ, the cause of death was five different drugs in her system.

The report says that Deven had cocaine, heroin, clonazepam, topiramate, and fluoxetine in her system.

Cocaine and heroin are both illegal, and are very different drugs.

The others are another matter.

Clonazepam is a fairly tame benzodiazepine that can be used to treat anxiety.

Topiramate has a few uses, one of the most common to reduce the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches.

Flueoxetine is a fairly standard serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Most people know this medication as Prozac.

The cause of death was ruled accidental.

The medical examiner's office believes that the lethal combination of drugs was an unintentional tragedy.

Jonathan Davis spoke out on Instagram several days after her passing.

"Over the last few days," he wrote at the time. "There has been a lot of speculation over what really happened surrounding the death of my wife, Deven."

He continued: "and I want my voice to be heard."

"Over the past decade, my wife has been very very sick," he revealed.

He explained: "She had a serious mental illness and her addiction was a side effect."

"I loved her with ALL of my being," Jonathan gushed. "When she was her true self, she was an amazing wife, amazing mother and amazing friend."

"She was full of life and joy, and she would do anything to share that with those around her," he wrote.

Jonathan admitted that he had "tried to hide what was going on."

He shared that he did this "in order to protect her."

"She is the reason I have advocated so hard for those struggling with their mental health," he explained.

"I want her story to inspire people to reach out for help," Jonathan wrote. "And not to be afraid or hide from their illness."

"If you know someone with a mental illness," he implored. "Have compassion and empathy, and know that they are not bad people, they are suffering."

Jonathan shared that, as a facet of her illness, the mother of two of his three sons never understood "how sick she really was."

"I’d give anything to have the chance to hold her again," Jonathan confessed.

"I’d give anything for my kids to have their mother back," he wrote.

Jonathan said: "I have comfort in knowing that now she has found freedom from her illness, and she is finally at peace."

"I swear one day I’ll be there with you by your side when my ride here on earth is over," he concluded. "I love you, Luber."

That is devastating and must have been incredibly difficult to write, especially just days after her tragic passing.

We hope that his fans and followers will listen to his heartfelt message.
