Erica Blasberg: Death of LPGA Golfer Ruled a Suicide

Almost four months after the death of Erica Blasberg, authorities have ruled her death as a suicide.

Blasberg, a 25-year old college sensation who became a popular figure on the LPGA Tour, was found dead after a 911 call brought Police to her Henderson, Nevada home on May 11.

The Clark County Coroner's office announced the findings of its investigation Tuesday.  Authorities ruled out foul play as a cause of death and determined she died from asphyxiation.  Blasberg also had  toxic levels of prescription medication in her system, including pain and anti-anxiety medications.

Tuesday, Police also issued an arrest warrant for Dr. Thomas Hess, Blasberg's former physician, on charges of obstruction of justice after he removed evidence from the scene before officers responded to the 911 call.

Although the investigation is officially over, the mystery surrounding the case is only beginning.

Here is a closer look at the tragic death of Erica Blasberg.
