Officials are continuing to investigate director Tony Scott’s death, who leap from a bridge in Los Angeles Sunday.
The hunt for answers began two days ago when an autopsy was performed on the 68-year-old filmmaker amid reports that he was suffering from inoperable brain cancer.
His death is being investigated as a suicide, but, as tends to be the case, the official cause of death has been deferred pending the results of toxicology tests.
However, the lack of definitive info came as L.A. County Chief Coroner Craig Harvey stated that, according to Scott’s wife he didn’t have terminal cancer.
“The family told us it is incorrect that he has inoperable brain cancer,” Harvey said.
According to authorities, Scott left a note with contact information in his black Prius, which was found parked near the Vincent Thomas Bridge after he jumped.
Julian Bray, described as a friend and former colleague of Scott’s, stated that the director had a history of depression.
“But whatever happens,” he added, “Tony Scott has left behind an amazing raft of work and a lot of people would be very very grateful to him for what he’s done. And of course our condolences are with his family and everybody else connected to him.”
