Jim Carrey's girlfriend has been found dead in her Los Angeles apartment. She is reported to have left a suicide note making reference to their recent breakup. A day before Cathriona posted a message on Twitter reading: 'Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest'.

Pills lying next to her body led the LAPD to believe 28-year-old Cathriona had taken an overdose.

The Dumb and Dumber star met Cathriona in 2012.
