The grief and sadness one feels at losing a loved one are unimaginable. Not to mention that it is even hard to break such heartbreaking news to people out there who once had a close connection with the person who has left this world for good. Thus, being the bearer of sad news, we, with great sorrow, have to break this shocking revelation to all of her fans worldwide that “Sara Ann Lee” is no longer with us now.
The sudden death of the renowned American television personality and professional wrestler has left the world with inconsolable grief but has also left many with the unanswered question: what was Sara Lee’s cause of death?
Seeing that the thirty-year-old wrestler was outstanding a few days before her death and her social media page can also validate that she was pretty active these days. Although nothing much has been disclosed to the larger audience by her family, here are all the details that we can get our hands on about Sara Lee’s sudden death.
Sara Lee’s Cause of Death
30-year-old pro wrestler Sara Lee’s cause of death was suicide. Also, her death was regarded as “mixed drug toxicity” due to the presence of doxylamine, amphetamines, and alcohol in her system. As per the report of the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office, the young sportswoman had consumed a fatal cocktail filled with drugs and alcohol.
In addition, the coroner’s report claims that Lee was rescued with bruises and abrasions on her body, especially her head. She had left “the letters of intent” at the scene prior to her tragic passing. Moreover, authorities suspected that the ex-wrestler suffered a fall while being under the influence of alcohol when she passed away.
When Did Sara Lee Die?
Sara Lee, the winner of the sixth season of the WWE competition Tough Enough, died on Thursday, October 6, 2022. The wrestler’s mother updated the fans about her daughter’s death through a Facebook post.
Terri Lee, Sara Lee’s mother, told the fans that:
“It is with heavy hearts we want to share that our Sara Weston has gone to be with Jesus. 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 and her children.”
It is a tough time for her whole family. They would have never thought she would be gone so soon, but sadly, she is not here with us anymore, a painful reality that we must accept.
Thus, it is no surprise that dealing with the jumbled mess of emotions they must have been going through is probably not an easy feat for the bereaved parents, husband and kids.
