WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The Palm Beach County Medical Examiner's Office has released its report on the death of Pamela Brooks and her 10-year-old daughter Alex.

The death was ruled a murder-suicide. Investigators say Pamela stabbed her daughter more than 20 times and then stabbed herself more than 10 times.

According to the report, there were no illegal drugs found in Pamela's system, but she was on a normal dosage of Prozac.

The mother and daughter were found dead in their West Palm Beach home in September.

Brad Brooks - Pam's ex-husband and Alex's father - came to the home to pick up his daughter for his weekly visitation period. When he could not get inside the home, police say he called 911.

Forced entry was made and the bodies were found close together according to police.

Investigators say the case is officially closed.
