NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York City medical examiner has ruled the death of fashion designer L'Wren Scott a suicide.

An autopsy completed Wednesday on the body of 49-year-old Scott found that she died of hanging.

Scott was the girlfriend of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. She was discovered dead in her Manhattan apartment Monday morning. Police say her assistant found her kneeling with a scarf wrapped around her neck that had been tied to the handle of a French door. There was no note.

The Stones canceled their seven-date tour of Australia and New Zealand after Scott's death.

Jagger called Scott his "lover and best friend" in a Facebook tribute. He said he was struggling to understand why she might have taken her own life.
