Film Director Tony Scott Committed Suicide by Plunging to his Death From the Vincent Thomas Bridge in California
Hollywood director Tony Scott has plunged to his death from a Los Angeles bridge after writing a suicide note and leaving information in his car for police to contact his wife. The 68-year-old, who directed popular films including Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop II and Enemy Of The State, died after leaping from the the Vincent Thomas Bridge at around 12.30pm on Sunday.
Los Angeles police will now be trying to piece together what led to the death of the successful British-born director who, on the surface, had everything to live for. Scott, the younger brother of director Ridley Scott, leaves behind two twin boys and his wife Donna, a model and actress who had appeared in some of his films.
On Friday, Cruise toured a naval Air Station near Fallon, Nevada, as part of prep work for the movie which, if it enjoys the same success of the first film, could be one of the biggest box office hits of the decade.
According to the Contra Costa Times, Scott climbed a fence on the south side of the bridge, which spans San Pedro and Terminal Island, at 12.30 p.m. on Sunday and leaped off ‘without hesitation’. A dive team with Los Angeles Port Police pulled the body from the murky water several hours later. It was taken to a dock in Wilmington and turned over to the county coroner’s office.
