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.

Entertainment publicist Lois Smith dies at age 85

Lois Smith, a veteran New York-based publicist whose client list was a Who’s Who of the A-list including Marilyn Monroe, Martin Scorsese, Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, Warren Beatty, Whitney Houston, and Liza Minelli, died on Sunday. Smith had been visiting the Maine campus of Hebron Academy when she accidentally tripped and fell on Saturday evening, suffering a brain hemorrhage. She was 85.

In 1969, Smith started Pickwick Public Relations — an agency that would later evolve into the Hollywood powerhouse firm PMK. For many entertainment journalists, it was impossible to have not crossed paths on many occasions with Smith. She was known to be as protective of her clients as a mother hen, but she was always fair, passionate about movies, and more often than not armed with an off-the-record joke.
