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.

Lee, a native of Hope, Michigan, won a one-year, $250,000 WWE contract in the competition’s sixth season.

"Sara lived for 30 years. And she lived a lot of beautiful moments in those 30 years," sister-in-law Courtney White said in a statement to NBC News on Friday night.

"Her death was a very short chapter in a very beautiful life. A chapter that needs no explanation or comments. Seven months ago today she left us and the details matter no more then, than they do now."
