When Cathriona White, Jim Carrey‘s on-off-girlfriend, was pronounced dead at her L.A. Residence on Monday night, it was characterized as a possible suicide due to evidence found on the scene. The coroner’s report noted that not only were there pills located near her, but there was also a suicide note – and the note contained Carrey’s name, PEOPLE has learned.

Though Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said he did not personally see the note, he confirmed to PEOPLE that the Los Angeles Police Department told him Carrey’s name was in the letter.

“The LAPD evidently said [it contained Carrey’s name],” Winter tells PEOPLE.

Further details of the note, including who it was addressed to, remain unknown.

White’s official cause of death cannot be determined until an autopsy is performed, and according to Winter, toxicology results can take anywhere from eight to 10 weeks to be completed.

Meanwhile, those closest to White are shocked and devastated by the sudden loss of the 30-year-old Irish-born makeup artist.

With White’s stepmother and sister on their way to Los Angeles to bring White’s body back to Ireland, on Tuesday they released an emotional statement.

“The family of Cathriona White sincerely regret the untimely passing of their beloved daughter and sister. Cathriona was a shining light in our lives who was loved deeply by her entire family.

They added: “We will miss her terribly and at this difficult time we ask to be left in private to mourn our loss. There will be no further statements on behalf of the family.”

Carrey, who reportedly met White on a movie set in 2012 and dated for most of 2013 before reuniting earlier this year, also spoke out to honor his “sweet Cathriona.”

“I am deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona,” he said in a statement. “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.”
