Default Death of NFL Star's Mother Ruled Suicide

GRANBY, Colo. — 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 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.

Bock said Brees died while staying at the home of a friend in Granby near Rocky Mountain National Park.

It took longer than 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.

How truly sad. My late Dad always told us that there is always a solution to ANY problem we may face and I've lived my life on that theory. I'm sure this is a very bitter pill for Drew to swallow - condolences to him and his family.

I had no idea she was even dead - it takes 3 months for a toxicology report to come back?

I guess deaths of celebrity family members are news to some, but I don't really need to know.

I hope this doesn't unleash a ton of questions by the overly sensitive and caring news media.

What are the odds they leave Drew alone?

I am sure that was unintentional and no pun was intended. I also am sorry for Drew, hopefully his family and team mates will be there for him.
