The death of the mother of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been ruled a suicide.

Mina Brees, an attorney from Austin, Texas, died on Aug. 7 while visiting Colorado.  This week Grand County coroner Brenda Bock concluded that she died of a prescription drug overdose and ruled the death a suicide.

It took over three months for a cause of death to be reached but Bock said that's typical for cases involving toxicology tests.

Relations between Drew Brees and his mother were strained at times and the quarterback asked her to stop using his picture in TV commercials touting her candidacy for a Texas appeals court in 2006.
