A preliminary investigation into the circumstances surrounding former WWE star Chyna's death revealed "no signs of foul play," according to California police. Now, her manager tells the New York Daily News that she died of an accidental overdose on prescription medication.

From the report:

"She was inappropriately taking her legally prescribed medication over the course of two to three weeks," Anzaldo said. "On Sunday night, her body had enough."

The manager doesn't believe that Chyna had purposely taken a deadly number of pills in a suicide attempt, as there weren't any illegal drugs or alcohol around the apartment when he found her.

It should be noted that while his is an informed opinion, it's still just that. A toxicology report won't be available for a number of months, so this isn't official by any means.

As noted previously by her manager, they are attempting to get permission to donate her brain for CTE research.
