The cause of death for former WWE star  Sara Lee has been revealed.

According to a new autopsy report obtained by TMZ Sports, the 30-year-old died by suicide in October last year.

As per documents published by the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office, officials say the former Tough Enough winner consumed a fatal dose of alcohol and pills that led to her death.

The report also detailed injuries that Lee sustained that night, including "bruises and abrasions on her head and body" which officials suspected came from falls due to the fact that she was heavily intoxicated at the time.

The report comes approximately seven months after the news of Lee's sudden death was released.

Lee's mother, Terri, announced the news via a Facebook statement.

"It is with heavy hearts we wanted to share that our Sara Weston has gone to be with Jesus," she said. "We are all in shock and arrangements are not complete. We ask that you respectfully let our family mourn. We all need prayers especially Cory [her husband] and her children."

Lee was best known for participating in the sixth season of WWE's Tough Enough, a show where a bunch of rookie wrestlers gave it their all to prove that they are "tough enough" to make it onto the main roster.

The 30-year-old came out on top and earned herself a one-year contract with the WWE. However, after her contract expired, she gave up her career as a mainstream performer and headed to the indie circuit.

The WWE released a statement on Twitter that read: "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," they added.

Her husband, WWE performer Cory Weston, better known by his stage name Wesley Blake, also posted his own heartfelt tribute for his late wife stating that "death can’t take away the memories we made."

"Dear Sara," he started. "I loved you from the first moment I saw you. I would always say that you were an angel walking on this earth. Beautiful, compassionate, strong and so loving. An angel that blessed me with 3 of the most beautiful children I could imagine."

"But you were soo much more than just mom,' he continued. "You were a motivator, a best friend, a sister, a daughter, an aunt, the back bone of our family, and (my favorite), my wife."

"I really don’t know what to say in these uncertain times. I just know that death can’t take away the memories we made. I can’t promise that I will stop grieving but I know now, that you’re free," he said before thanking Lee for "giving me the best years of my life so far."

Two months later, Weston followed up with an anniversary post on what would have been the pair's fifth anniversary.

"Happy Anniversary," the NXT Superstar wrote. "Thank you for the love that will be everlasting. 5 years ago today, you made me luckiest man in the world.

"I Miss You. I Love You," he concluded.

Lee is survived by her three children Piper, Brady, and Case.

Rest in peace, Sara Lee.
