the anti-anxiety medication known as Valium, in Kinkade’s blood.

May 9, 2012: An autopsy report released by the Santa Clara County Coroner’s Office reveals “a lethal level” of alcohol, combined with benzodiazepine, the anti-anxiety medication known as Valium, in Kinkade’s blood.

It went on to say that Amy Pinto had found him unresponsive in his bed and called police at 11:15 a.m. She told authorities he had been drinking all night. “He was last known to be alive approximately four hours prior, ” the report said.

June 11, 2012: Court documents obtained by the Mercury News reveal that Amy Pinto had produced barely legible, handwritten notes that she says show Kinkade intended to leave her his Monte Sereno house and $10 million to establish a museum of his original paintings there. She also sought control of $66.3 million from Kinkade’s estate.
