The autopsy for Sherri Martel has revealed that the former champion and manager had multiple drugs in her system when she died, including a high amount of oxycodone.

The report, released by Tuscaloosa, Alabama homicide investigators, indicated that Martel's death in McCalla, Ala., on June 15, 2007 was an accident.

Martel, who was 49, was inducted into the World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Fame in 2006 and won championship titles in the American Wrestling Association and World Wrestling Federation.

At the time of her death, Captain Loyd Baker of the Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit had said foul play isn't suspected, but that Martel didn't die of natural causes.
