Tony Scott's Death Notes Offer No Clues

A number of notes left by Top Gun director Tony Scott before he leapt to his death from a bridge in Los Angeles do not offer an explanation for his actions, officials have said.

Ed Winter, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Coroner's office, said the notes left for family and friends make no mention of any health problems, despite earlier reports suggesting Scott was suffering from incurable brain cancer.

His widow, Donna Wilson, had already dismissed those claims as "absolutely false".

The British film-maker, who is the younger brother of producer Ridley Scott, was seen parking his car on Vincent Thomas Bridge and jumping into the Los Angeles Harbour below on Sunday.

Scott left a list of emergency contact numbers, as well as messages to friends and loved ones in the notes discovered in his car, said Mr Winter.

A post-mortem on Monday revealed no obvious signs of a brain tumour. It will, however, be a month or more before an official cause of death is determined.

Officials are treating Scott's death as a probable suicide.
