What cancer???? How do you know he had cancer? Did you read it on the internet? Can you answer any of the questions I posed? I am genuinely seeking intellectual discourse - not ridicule. Ridicule is easy but intellectual communication is challenging. I want the challenge of being proven wrong. Any members have medical training in the area of human behaviours?????

Much Peace...

I don't know. I honestly don't know anything.

I'm not really interested enough to do so.

Jesus... A man has every right on his own life, even the right to end it. He chose to do so for a reason, and it takes a lot of courage to do it. Sure, people left behind, as his family and friends, will suffer from his death, but ultimately, the choice was his, and his only. Before judging someone, we certainly should think more about our own lives and our ways of conducting it.

Go read the post I answered to. Someone claiming "it reeks of BS" without adding anything to the conversation. Just saying "it's a lie" because he felt like it. That's doubting without reason, and I would not be surprised if this individual doubts everything the same way, in a crazy way.

I haven't read all of the posts, but he had inoperable brain cancer. Which is why he committed suicide. Lets drop the "omg maybe he was pushed by Thom Crooz!!!!"

So Scott was visiting a prestigious Navy air field to get help with his new movie "Top Gun II Narco Sub" the zen tale of a washed up Top Gun pilot paddling a plywood Submarine full of Cocaine to NY.

Wonder what they told him?

Sory for that, I heavn't heard of what happened before this article.
Maybe he got some incurable disease?

I've read some past bio's of Scott especially interviews with actors, who always describe him as an upbeat character, who has a very manic and hyper style of directing, with plenty of joking around on the set. Doesn't seem like the sort of personality that would suffer from depression to the point of suicide. He still had a number of projects in the works, and did his production company just wrapped up Prometheus. So you can't say he was suffering from neglect or a stagnant career.

How do we know it was a suicide? "Witnesses" or a witness claimed he stopped his car, scaled a fence, and jumped without hesitation. Pretty spry, for a 68 yr-old man, who stood 5'-7" tall. Take a look at the fence in question:



The articles claim the fence is "8 to 10" feet tall. I've been over that bridge, and like anyone else who has, can tell you it's taller than 8'. It's at least 10', in fact it felt more like a good 12' or more. In the photo, the height of the fence on the far side of the bridge is nearly equal to the tractor-trailer cab (the one that looks like a sleep-over cab), which, according to DOT, is roughly 13 feet. (*) That's a heckuva fence for a short older guy to climb over.

Was this truly a suicide? Who exactly are these witnesses?

(*) based on these sources: 1, 2

Seems like a well trafficked area. Not the best blace for MIB to throw somone off the bridge without somebody noticing, so that detail would speak against him having been suicided.

And what would be the motive to whack him to begin with?

I think he just wanted to express an anger of dying young and also spare the family of the expense of death. But thats just my opinion

Some additional info on the case:

Tony Scott's death filmed by witnesses – and hawked to media outlets


Witnesses who filmed and photographed Tony Scott's fatal leap from a bridge into Los Angeles harbour are reportedly hawking the footage to media outlets.


ABC reported on Monday that the 68-year-old had inoperable brain cancer but hours later the theory was rebuffed by Craig Harvey, the coroner's department chief investigator. "A family spokesman told us late this afternoon that the information was not true, but we will be looking at everything," he told reporters. ABC quickly retreated from the story.

An autopsy had been completed but final results must wait six to eight weeks for toxicology tests, added Harvey.


So mystery witnesses also filmed the jump. Brain tumor rumor is just that, a rumor.

He also had a big film in the works, a remake of "The Warriors", in which a pivotal scene would be shot from the Vincent -Thomas bridge, involving (supposedly) 100,000 real gang members of LA. Maybe the mayor of LA got wind of this scene and didn't want LA's gang problem to be given any more media attention and so threw Scott from the bridge... (and hired actors for witnesses)
(all joking aside, it's a sad day for Hollywood - Tony and his brother Ridley are two of my favorite directors).

Sad day indeed! True romance was his best work by far! I just have a hunch but think it has to do with his wife and him having issues or infidelity. Hope I am wrong
