Tony Scott's notes didn't give motive: coroner
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Officials from the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office said notes left behind by director Tony Scott did not give a motive for his suicide.
Coroner's office spokesman Ed Winter also said Friday the notes didn't mention any health issues.
The 68-year-old director of "Top Gun" leapt to his death Sunday from the Vincent Thomas Bridge into Los Angeles Harbor. Several people called 911 around 12:35 p.m. reporting that someone had jumped from the bridge.
An autopsy is scheduled for 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.
A source close to Scott told ABC News the director had inoperable brain cancer, but it was not confirmed if and when Scott was diagnosed with cancer.
The British-born Scott also directed Hollywood blockbusters "Days of Thunder" and "Beverly Hills Cop II."
