FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) – The death of former NFL wide receiver James Hardy has been ruled a suicide by Indiana officials.

The Allen County Coroner’s Office said Wednesday that the 31-year-old Hardy died of “asphyxia due to drowning.” Michael Burris, chief investigator for the coroner’s office, says the determination of suicide was based on Hardy’s medical and psychiatric history, his contacts with law enforcement and other evidence, including some found on his body.
