Health problems may have been at the heart of famed director Tony Scottís decision to jump off the Vincent Thomas Bridge yesterday. Authorities still havenít made public any of the notes the Hollywood legend left in his car before his suicide, but as more details are emerging, a picture is being painted of a man who was less emotionally unbalanced and more calm and resigned to his fate.
One source told ABC News, Scott had been diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer. We wonít know whether thatís true or not until the LA County Coroner announces his findings or someone from the family speaks on record, but it does sound like a believable reason behind such an upsetting action.
Sometime a little before noon on Sunday, Scott pulled up to the Vincent Thomas Bridge, parked his Prius on the side of the road, climbed the fence and jumped off. His body was discovered some four hours later by the Coast Guard and turned over to the coroner. His publicist later confirmed the body was his, but beyond that, no public messages have been made by those closest to the director.
With a suicide note left at his office, practical instructions reportedly left for his family members and plenty of relevant information in his car, Scott clearly put a lot of thought and effort into how he wanted to end his life. He reportedly jumped without any hesitation.
Pop Blendís thoughts go out to his entire family in this time of need. He will be missed.
