Maybe we were all too quick to point at drugs, considering so many have lost their lives to substance abuse recently!

The Los Angeles County Coroner is now going into detail about Julia Roberts' half-sister Nancy Motes' untimely passing.

In a new statement, Lieutenant Fred Corralis is revealing that although drugs (both prescription and non) were found on the scene, they're moving forward and investigating the case as an apparent suicide - despite reports of an OD:

"Nancy Motes was found dead at a residence in the bathroom yesterday, pronounced dead by the LA Fire Department at 2:12 PM yesterday. Not sure whose residence it was. She was found in a bathtub that had water in it. We're taking it as a suicide, not a drowning. She's being examined today. We are waiting for the doctor to provide his findings."

He continued, explaining vague details about the place of death:

"There were prescription and non-prescription drugs found at the scene. Cannot tell you what those drugs were. The role the drugs may or may not have played is not yet known. The investigator at the scene listed at this point that he is going with suicide and we are waiting for the doctor to finish the examination. We haven't gotten anything yet."

Hopefully they'll be able to figure out if/why the engaged production assistant took her own life.

Such a sad story!

    The rejection she felt from julia is probably really sad and unfortunate for Julia who seems to be an ego maniac, but I'm glad she's happy her embarrassing ugly sister has passed on so she doesnt have to deal with her anymore.

    now julia doesn't have her fat sister to embarrass her anymore. RIP sweet Nancy. shocked Julia took time off from being a star, guess it would have looked bad if she went to all the events while her sister was being buried.

    oh for the love of humanity the comments below are so ridiculous. no one knows why they were estranged but the family. perhaps, because she was struggling with drugs or whatever her demons were, it got to the point that it did. my sister and i bicker all the time and she judges me all the time and puts me down as well i didn't go and kill myself. please…now let's blame Julia for causing her sister to take her life or shoot up or take pills whatever the case may be.

    Perez do you realize that you can commit suicide by overdosing on drugs. Your headline is pretty confusing. The presence of drugs is probabaly a good reason to investigate suicide.

    Seriously these comments. She was an addict. We don't know whose stories are or are not true. Addicts lie out their ass to get money to support their habit. Just because her half sister has issues, doesn't mean its Julia's responsibility. Addiction starts with a choice. It's sad that she has died, but placing a blame is unfair. As someone who has exhausted herself trying to get her own sister help to have her repeatedly just use me, its not her job to tend to her sister. She's an adult and capable of making her own decisions.
