Autopsy reveals director Tony Scott died from blunt force in L.A. bridge jump

An autopsy report on the death of Top Gun director Tony Scott lists his death as a suicide and says the cause was multiple blunt force injuries suffered from jumping off a bridge into Los Angeles Harbor.

The report released Monday by the Los Angeles County coroner says Scott also drowned, and had in his system therapeutic levels of the anti-depressant Remeron and the sleep aid Lunesta.

No surprises appeared in the autopsy results on Scott, who leapt from the Vincent Thomas Bridge on Aug. 19 and whose death was presumed a probable suicide from the outset.

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