The details behind the death of former WWE wrestler Sara Lee were revealed on Friday.

The “Tough Enough” winner who performed in NXT for nearly a year died by suicide due to a lethal cocktail of alcohol and pills, according to multiple reports, citing the Bexar County, Texas, Medical Examiner’s Office. Amphetamines, doxylamine and alcohol were reportedly found in her system at the time of her death.

Lee was 30.

“Sara lived for 30 years. And she lived a lot of beautiful moments in those 30 years,” Courtney White, Lee’s sister-in-law, told NBC News.

“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.”

The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Officer didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.

Lee’s mother, Terri, announced her daughter’s death in October.

“WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of Sara Lee. As a former ‘Tough Enough’ winner, Lee served as an inspiration to many in the sports-entertainment world. WWE offers its heartfelt condolences to her family, friends and fans,” the company wrote at the time.
