Tony Scott bridge jump was suicide

23 October 2012

A report on Top Gun director Tony Scott said his death was a suicide and the cause was multiple blunt force injuries suffered from jumping off a bridge into Los Angeles Harbour.

The report, released by the Los Angeles County coroner, says the 68-year-old British film-maker also drowned and had in his system therapeutic levels of the anti-depressant Remeron and the sleep aid Lunesta.

No surprises appeared in the post-mortem results on Scott, the younger brother of Gladiator director Sir Ridley Scott.

Tony Scott leapt from the Vincent Thomas Bridge on August 19 and his death was presumed a probable suicide from the outset.

The coroner's office said previously that North Shields, Tyne and Wear-born Scott left notes behind in his car, including messages to friends and loved ones, but none gave a reason why he would kill himself.
