It’s been a dark week for Julia Roberts. Nancy Motes, Roberts' half sister, was found dead from a supposed drug overdose in Los Angeles this past weekend. Roberts has since kept a low profile, and has cancelled multiple award show appearances, including the Academy Awards' Nominees Luncheon in Beverly Hills on Monday, and an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!,  in wake of the tragedy. According to multiple reports, Nancy Motes, who worked as a production assistant, was found dead in her bathtub with various prescription and non prescription drugs in her room. Los Angeles Country Coroner representative Fred Corralis released a statement confirming what was found on location at the scene. "Nancy Motes was found dead at a residence in the bathroom yesterday, pronounced dead by the LA Fire Department at 2:12 p.m. yesterday. Not sure whose residence it was. She was found in a bathtub that had water in it. We're taking it as a suicide, not a drowning. She's being examined today. We are waiting for the doctor to provide his findings.” Corralis continued to elaborate on the current situation, "There were prescription and non-prescription drugs found at the scene. Cannot tell you what those drugs were. The role the drugs may or may not have played is not yet known. The investigator at the scene listed at this point that he is going with suicide and we are waiting for the doctor to finish the examination. We haven't gotten anything yet." We wish the Roberts and Motes family well in this time of grief and sadness.
