Autopsy: Foreman's daughter died by suicide

HUMBLE, Texas -- A Texas medical examiner confirms that Freeda George Foreman, the daughter of former heavyweight champion George Foreman, died by suicide.

Emergency crews found the 42-year-old woman while responding to a suburban Houston home Friday. The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences listed her official cause of death on its website Tuesday.

George Foreman had addressed his daughter's death in a tweet Sunday night, posting a picture of them at her college graduation.

Freeda Foreman followed in her father's footsteps and spent a brief time as a boxer. Her father says that when she told him she wanted to box, he told her to get a degree first, and she did.

She was 5-1 in her boxing career, which spanned 17 months from 2000 to 2001.
