Coroner: Porn Star Marilyn Chambers Died of Natural Causes

Chambers, whose real name was Marilyn Ann Taylor, was discovered by her daughter at 8:30 pm on April 12. A autopsy was performed a few days later but additional toxicology tests were required. This afternoon the findings were released by the coroner's office. Chambers, 56, died of the effects of a cerebral hemorrhage and aneurysm related to heart disease. According to Chief Craig Harvey, she had a slightly enlarged heart.

Small levels of prescribed drugs, Hydrocodone (Vicodin) and Citalopram (an anti-depressant medication), were found in her system.

The actress and model became a well known name in porn films after she starred in the 1972 film "Behind the Green Door." Her appearance in the film cost her the job as Procter & Gamble's Ivory Snow girl.
