Former WWE wrestler Sara Lee, who emerged victorious in the sixth season of the reality competition series Tough Enough, tragically passed away by suicide, as disclosed by a recently released coroner's report. TMZ initially reported that the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office documents revealed Lee's demise from consuming a fatal mix of alcohol and pills.
The report also mentioned that the late wrestler left "letters of intent at the scene" and was discovered with bruises and abrasions on her head and body. Authorities speculate that the injuries may have been sustained from one or multiple falls while Lee was intoxicated.
Last October, the wrestling community was shocked when the news of the 30-year-old's death was made public. The WWE released a statement expressing their condolences: "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." Sara Lee was primarily known for participating in the 2015 WWE reality series Tough Enough, which she won, securing a one-year contract with the renowned wrestling entertainment company.
Following her win, she competed sporadically for WWE's developmental brand NXT from late 2015 to 2016 before being released from her contract in September 2016. In 2017, Sara Lee married fellow wrestler Cory Weston, known in WWE as Wesley Blake, and the couple had three children together.
Following Lee's passing, Weston expressed his grief on Instagram, writing, "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." Weston continued his tribute, saying, "I don't know what to say in these uncertain times. I know that death can't take away the memories we made.
I can't promise to stop grieving, but I know you're free now. I can't thank you enough for giving me the best years of my life so far."
