Actress Drew Barrymore's sister Jessica was this morning found dead in her car.

The 47-year-old, who shares the same father John as the Golden Globe winner, was found early this morning.

Her exact cause of death is unclear, but, according to reports, she was found with 'dozens of white pills' scattered around her vehicle.

Ms Barrymore's struggles with addiction have been well documented.

She was discovered by a neighbour, Marta Lopez, who unsuccessfully tried to revive her, reports ABC's local 10 News.

Tomorrow would be Jessica's 48th birthday.

The Barrymore family have not yet commented on the tragedy.
