A medical examiner has ruled the death of fashion designer L'Wren Scott a suicide.

An autopsy confirmed that she hung herself.

Police say her assistant found the 49-year-old kneeling with a scarf wrapped around her neck, tied to a door handle.

There was no note.

Scott launched her own fashion label in 2006.

She was the girlfriend of Mick Jagger, the lead singer of the Rolling Stones.

Jagger released a statement on his website calling her his "lover and best friend" and said he was struggling to understand why she would take her own life.

The band canceled their upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand.
