More information is coming out about the tragic death of former MTV star Audrina Patridge's 15-year-old niece, Sadie Raine.
On Nov. 13, TMZ reported that the teen's death was ruled a drug overdose, but the manner of death has not been determined.
Audrina, who found fame on "The Hills," was fiercely close with her niece and was heartbroken when the teen unexpectedly passed away in February 2023.

Following the overdose death of Audrina Patridge's 15-year-old niece, Sadie Raine, police are trying to figure out who supplied her with the drugs that killed her.
TMZ reported that Sadie was able to use Snapchat to buy Percocet, which was laced with fentanyl. If cops are able to pinpoint the dealer, charges are likely to follow.
Police have been cracking down on drug suppliers in recent years.
After rapper Mac Miller died in 2018 from a fatal dose of fentanyl-laced drugs, his dealer was sentenced to more than 17 years in prison.
In 2021, "The Wire" actor Michael K. Williams overdosed in his New York apartment on fentanyl-laced heroin. The dealer who supplied Michael with drugs was recently sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Sadie Raine's dealer could certainly meet a similar fate.
Back in February 2023, Audrina Patridge's announced the death of her teenage niece, but she refrained from elaborating on the circumstances.
"My heart hurts to even write this. My beautiful niece is now in heaven," the reality TV star penned on Instagram alongside a 10-slide tribute. "I know Its not goodbye forever, but it is the hardest to say goodbye for now. We will miss you and cherish every single moment we had with you. Rest in peace Say Say!! We love you forever & ever!"
A GoFundMe page was set up after Sadie Raine death.
"All donations will support the Sadie Raine Foundation established to help teens & their families," the page explained. "Sadie was a beautiful dreamer, and together we will change the world for our youth."
The fund was established with a $100,000 goal, but it hasn't come anywhere near that total as of November 2023.
