Tony Scott death was suicide

Tuesday October 23, 2012

It has been announced that director Tony Scott's death was a suicide.

The Top Gun film maker was examined by a Los Angeles county coroner, who said that the 68-year-old British director had high levels of anti-depressant Remeron and sleep aid Lunesta in his system when he drowned.

The late star leapt from the Vincent Thomas Bridge on August 19 which was taken as a presumed suicide.

The director left behind notes for his loved ones, but they are apparently still unsure as to why he decided to take his own life.
