Coroner: Tony Scott's notes didn't say reason for death

County coroner’s officials say notes left behind by Top Gun director Tony Scott did not give a motive why he would kill himself.

Coroner’s office spokesman Ed Winter also said Friday the notes didn’t mention any health issues.

The 68-year-old Scott died Sunday after leaping from the Vincent Thomas Bridge into Los Angeles Harbor. An autopsy was performed on the British-born director’s body Monday, but it will be a month or more before an official cause of death is determined.

Coroner’s officials are treating Scott’s death as a probable suicide.

Winter says one of the notes left in his car was a list of emergency contact numbers and another included messages to friends and loved ones.

Tony Scott's family denies reports he was suffering from brain cancer

In the wake of director Tony Scott’s apparent suicide on Sunday, ABC News, citing a source close to Scott, reported that the filmmaker was suffering from inoperable brain cancer at the time of his death. But according to the Los Angeles Times, Scott’s family is now denying the reports, which quickly circulated on-line, that the 68-year-old director had brain cancer. The Los Angeles County coroner’s office has not yet determined whether Scott had any underlying health problems that might have driven him to take his own life by jumping off a bridge in San Pedro, Calif. Its final report on the Top Gun director’s death will not be released until toxicology and other tests are finished, which will take several weeks.

In the meantime, ABC News has backed off its initial story, posting an update on its web site headlined, “Tony Scott Brain Cancer Report Appears in Doubt.” The backpedaling follows an incident last month in which ABC News mistakenly reported that the man who killed 12 people in a shooting rampage at an Aurora, Colorado movie theater was linked to the Tea Party.

Stars remember Tony Scott after his death

John Travolta, The Talking of Pelham 1 2 3:
“Tony was one of my favorite directors I’ve ever worked with and was one of my favorite people, a truly inspired talent. Everyone loved Tony.”

Tom Cruise, Top Gun:
“Tony was my dear friend and I will really miss him. He was a creative visionary whose mark on film is immeasurable. My deepest sorrow and thoughts are with his family at this time.”
