Just a few days after former "Love Island" host and TV presenter Caroline Flack was found dead, her cause of death has been confirmed.

On Wednesday, the inquest into the 40-year-old's death was ruled as a suicide by hanging, according to the Mirror, which coincides with the autopsy which listed the provisional cause of death as suspension by ligature.

Flack was found unresponsive and pronounced dead at her London home on Saturday. Her family confirmed the news in a statement after multiple reports surfaced.

"We can confirm that our Caroline passed away today on the 15th [of] February. We would ask that the press respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time," they said.

Flack's death happened just weeks before she was due in court on March 4 for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend, Lewis Burton. The impending trial seemed to be on her mind because she addressed in an unpublished Instagram post shortly before the tragic incident.

In the post, released by Flack’s family, Variety reported she wrote that her "whole world and future was swept from under my feet." Flack added that she "took responsibility for what happened that night," but insisted that she "was NOT a domestic abuser."
