A toxicology test revealed the Top Gun director had taken therapeutic levels of Lunesta and Mirtazapine, also known as Remeron, before he leapt to his death from a bridge in San Pedro, Calif.
The cause of Scott’s death was determined as “multiple blunt force injuries” and drowning was also considered to be a factor.
Los Angeles police said that interviews with family members and colleagues didn’t help them determine Scott’s reasons for taking his own life.
