LOS ANGELES, Aug. 24 (UPI) — Director Tony Scott’s suicide note did not explain why he jumped off a Los Angeles bridge, law enforcement sources told the Los Angeles Times.
It’s possible authorities may never know for sure why the 68-year-old British director, who had just completed a new movie, committed suicide, the sources told the newspaper.
Sources familiar with the investigation told the gossip Web site TMZ the note was “short and sweet” and said he loved his wife Actress Donna Wilson Scott and their 12-year-old twin sons, Max and Frank.
Scott jumped 185 feet to his death in Los Angeles Harbor from a suspension bridge around 12:30 p.m. Sunday.
His films included “Top Gun,” “Beverly Hills Cop II,” “Crimson Tide,” “Enemy of the State,” “Deja Vu,” “The Taking of Pelham 123” and “Unstoppable.”
He was the younger brother of fellow director Ridley Scott, whose best-known works include “Blade Runner,” “Thelma & Louise,” “Gladiator,” “Black Hawk Down,” “Matchstick Men,” “Kingdom of Heaven,” “American Gangster,” “Robin Hood” and “Prometheus.”
