A US transgender porn star who was found dead at 24-years-old after going missing died of an accidental cocaine overdose, a coroner has ruled.

Angelina Please, originally from Chicago, was found dead in her Las Vegas apartment on March 15 this year.

A tweet from her neighbour and fellow porn star Aspen Brooks suggested that police were called to her flat when no one had heard from her in five days, AVN reported at the time.

Now, it's been revealed that Angelina, whose real name was Francesca Montalbano, died of "acute intoxication by cocaine," with the manner of death ruled as an accident, according to The Clark County Coroner.

The Sun previously reported she told her mum Stephanie she had been taking ketamine, and her family feared she'd consumed a "bad batch."

Stephanie exclusively told the publication that Clark County Coroner told the family that only a toxicology test was carried out when her daughter died, as a full autopsy could not be conducted.

She said: "The county said that they wouldn't be able to do an autopsy because she had been dead for almost four days.

"A toxicology test is all they had to go on and that is what I believe they based their conclusions on.

"I agree she had cocaine in her system, but lacking any other conclusive evidence….we will never know what really killed her. I am just horrified and disgusted."

Francesca's family travelled to Las Vegas and later had her cremated, with her ashes flown back to Chicago.

Her mother Stephanie also wrote on social media: "She was beautiful, smart, vivacious and the funniest person I know."

She explained to her followers she has been struggling to eat or sleep since her daughter's tragic death and described it as "the worst pain I ever have felt."

"I try to avoid having to deal with my emotional pain, but sometimes it's unavoidable," she said.
