Tony Scott Had An Anti-Depressant And A Sleeping Pill In His System When He Died
The why behind Tony Scottís suicide will likely never come, but earlier today, the public did get a few of the smaller details related to the tragedy from the coronerís office. The toxicology reports are finally in, and they reportedly show evidence of two prescription drugs in the beloved directorís system.
According to TMZ, at the time of Scottís death, his body contained normal prescription levels of the anti-depressant Mirtazapine, as well as the sleeping aid Lunesta. Given the dosage levels, itís unlikely either was a major factor in what happened, but each may have made some minor alterations to his mental state.
In addition, the Los Angeles coroner also announced Scott wasnít suffering from any major medical illnesses. Days after his death, speculation ran wild that the director jumped because he was suffering from brain cancer. Not long after, his wife denied that was the case, and now, her viewpoint has been backed up by the evidence.
Regardless of why Scott jumped, his absence leaves his children without a father, his wife without a husband and Hollywood with one less competent director. Pop Blendís sincerest thoughts go out to all those affected by his death. By all accounts, he was a wonderful, competent guy with plenty of enthusiasm. Hereís to hoping all of the great stories he told will survive for centuries.
