Julia Roberts' younger half sister, Nancy Motes, who was found dead in a bathtub in what was reported to the coroner's office as a suicide, left behind several pages of notes, officials said.
Ed Winter, deputy chief of the L.A. County coroner's office, when asked about a suicide note, confirmed investigators discovered "several written notes." They were not releasing any of its contents, he said.
The case was reported to the coroner's office as a suicide, according to coroner's office Chief Craig Harvey. Prescription and nonprescription medications were taken from the North Bundy Drive death scene as evidence, according to officials.
Roberts, 46, nominated for a supporting actress Oscar for "August: Osage County," bowed out of Monday's Academy Awards nominees luncheon to be with family, her representative told E! News.
In a statement to People magazine, the family confirmed Motes was found dead "of an apparent drug overdose."
"The family is both shocked and devastated," the statement read.
