Pro wrestler Sara Lee’s death has been ruled a suicide, Texas medical examiners said Friday, finding that the 30-year-old had ingested a fatal cocktail of alcohol and drugs.
Lee, best known for winning the 2015 WWE “Tough Enough” reality television series, died on Oct. 5 at her home in San Antonio, officials said.
Her death has been ruled a suicide by “mixed drug toxicity” as amphetamines, doxylamine and alcohol were all found her in system, a spokesperson for the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office told NBC News on Friday.
Lee, a native of Hope, Michigan, won a one-year, $250,000 WWE contract in the competition’s sixth season.
The wrestler’s father declined comment when reached by NBC News on Friday and a rep for WWE could not be immediately reached.
At the time of her death, the WWE said Lee was “an inspiration to many in the sports-entertainment world” and that the company offered “its heartfelt condolences to her family, friends and fans.”
