Tony Scott RIP: Producer/Director Jumps to Death in San Pedro
While Tony is not as well known by the general public as his brother, Ridley, he’s known within the industry for several block busters and two thought provoking, emotionally complex television series.
British film director Tony Scott jumped to his death Sunday afternoon from the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, police officials confirmed.
According to the Coast Guard report, Scott, 68, climbed a 8 to 10 -foot fence on the south side of the bridge and jumped about 12:30 p.m.
The report quoted a coroner’s report that said Scott jumped “without hesitation.”
A suicide note was discovered inside Scott’s black Toyota Prius, parked on one of the southbound lanes of the bridge, officials said. Police did not reveal the contents of the note.
Officers from the LAPD, the CHP and the U.S. Coast Guard pulled Scott’s body from the water about 4:30 p.m. and brought it to a dock in Wilmington, where it was turned over to Los Angeles County coroner’s officials.
