Preliminary autopsy report has confirmed Hollywood famous director Tony Scott's death as suicide, not cancer. 

The Los Angeles County Coroner's office announced that Scott succumbed to his multiple blunt-force injuries after jumping off the bridge and he was not having any fatal medical problems as rumoured.

The director also had therapeutic levels of the sleep aid Lunestra and the anti-depressant Mirtazipine, also known as Remeron, in his system, according to results of toxicology tests, reported Los Angeles Times.

Coroner's officers said that at least it would take two weeks before they get to lay hands on the final autopsy reports.  However, probing official Craig Harvey has dismissed the reports that Scott was suffering from a brain-tumour, which was even refuted by his family.

The officials said that the doctor's report has not indicated any chronic illness in Scott.

The big-ticked British origin director-producer leapt to death from the Vincent Thomas bridge on August 19, this year in suspicious circumstances.  His extreme step took Hollywood and investigators by surprise. The officials are yet to ascertain on what actually caused Scott to kill himself.

Meanwhile, his family is also said to be clueless about a reason behind his death. They also refrained from making any public explanation over his suicide. Investigators also reportedly failed to draw a lead from talking to Scott's kin.

Scott was living with his third wife Donna and their 12-year-old twin sons Max and Frank. He is know for churning out high-voltage action thrillers.

"At the time of his death, Scott was reported to be involved in developing several film projects including a sequel to his biggest hit, the 1986 fighter-jet adventure Top Gun, which starred Tom Cruise," reported the Telegraph.
