White was found unresponsive at a home in the Los Angeles area by two friends on Monday. Cops were called and, upon arrival, declared White dead. Pills were found at the scene, leading the Los Angeles Police Department to suspect that White intentionally overdosed on drugs, according to TMZ.
After learning of White’s passing, Carrey released a statement.
“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona,” Carrey’s statement read. “She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled.”
“My heart goes out to her family and friends and to everyone who loved and cared about her,” the actor added. “We have all been hit with a lightning bolt.”
In addition to the pills, law enforcement also uncovered a suicide note at the scene of the tragedy. The suicide note allegedly referenced White and Carrey’s most recent breakup on Sept. 24. On that same day, White wrote her last tweet, which reads,“Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest.”
