Back in August, we reported the tragic news that filmmaker Tony Scott died after jumping off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, California. Today, the Los Angeles County coroner officially ruled the death a suicide.

One day after his death, reports surfaced that the director was suffering from inoperable brain cancer, although that story was debunked by his wife, Donna W. Scott, shortly thereafter. There was no mention of any type of cancer in the official report released earlier today. The coroner did find therapeutic levels of the anti-depressant drug Remeron, and the sleep aid Lunesta in his system.

The official findings only add to the mystery surrounding this popular filmmaker's death. Our first report revealed that a suicide note was found, although what was said in the note has not been revealed as of yet.

    @Zak-Lee-Ferguson -- It's hard to feel sorry for someone who chose to take their own life. There's always exceptions, but this is not one of them.
