LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Coroner's officials say the death of Julia Roberts' half-sister in February was a suicide.

An autopsy and toxicology tests led to the determination that Nancy Motes drowned in a bathtub after taking several drugs that have not yet been publicly identified.

Los Angeles coroner's spokesman Craig Harvey says the drugs will be listed in a full autopsy report that could be released as early as next week.

Harvey says 37-year-old Motes left behind a suicide note and that it will be turned over to her family.

Motes was the younger sister of actress Julia Roberts and actor Eric Roberts.

A receptionist for Julia Roberts' publicist, Marcy Engelman, said Engelman was out of the country and unavailable to comment and that no one else was available.
