Freeda Foreman was found unresponsive inside her Houston home on Saturday, CNN affiliate KTRK reported. Harris County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Tebben Lewis said in a statement that the death is an apparent suicide, adding that a “final determination on the cause of death will be made by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.”

George Foreman was a heavyweight boxing champion in the 1970s and 1990s. He gained another level of fame as spokesman for the George Foreman Grill.
