Coroner rules Julia Roberts' half sister committed suicide

A Los Angeles County coroner has ruled Julia Roberts' half-sister died after taking her own life. Nancy Motes, 37, passed away in February, and now the official report from her autopsy has been made public.

It suggests she ingested both prescription and non-prescription medications, and climbed into a bathtub, where she drowned. She was found submerged and lifeless in the water.

Earlier this month, the Pretty Woman star attended an emotional memorial service for her tragic sister in their native Smyrna, Georgia. Prior to her death, Motes worked as a production assistant on hit TV series Glee, and was due to wed fiance John Dilbeck this month.
