Tony Scott

Left List of People to Notify

After Suicide

8/20/2012 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0820-tony-scott-getty-7Police found a list of names and phone numbers in Tony Scott's car after he committed suicide ... names of people the famous director wanted to posthumously inform he killed himself.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... investigators have characterized the note as a "contact list."  Our sources say it's clear ... the list was left by Scott so certain people would quickly know he jumped to his death.

A second note -- a suicide note -- was found in Scott's office.  We're told that note was far more detailed about the reason the director took his life.  The contact list was essentially just names and phone numbers.

Tom Cruise Wanted to make another Top Gun movie. So Tony Scott jumped off a bridge.

I heard from some of my contacts in the industry that Tony Scott is making a remake of "Splash".

Wow TMZ, what are you 12th man on the deal, last to know? It is being reported everywhere he had brain cancer. I have even seen pictures of a sullen Tom Cruise leaving a restaurant after hearing the news. Come on and get up to speed. Instead of telling us a bout another worthless rapper arrested how about some real news like this?

TMZ seems to be relishing in the misery of others. I am, sure you nosey douche bags will be scrambling to find out the names on that list and then trying to pry into his suicide note.

Fact is, it isn't anyone's business. The decent thing to do would have been to report the death and nothing else.

I had a loved one pass away from Brain Cancer, one of the worst of the cancers. They suffer from dementia and insanity. It's hard to watch them go through it and it's worse for the sufferer, the pain with Cancer is not easy to deal with even with drugs. Condolences to his family, his friends and the industry that has lost another great one. R.I.P, Tony Scott, your soul can now be at ease.

If he had inoperable brain cancer that explains it. Very Very Sad. My sympathies for the ones left behind.

It's sad we can euthanize our beloved pets when they are suffering or facing terminal illness yet we can't do this with human beings. That jumping off a bridge or any other number of terrible ways people have to endure to go "on their own terms' is an awful thing. Kevorkian had the right idea. RIP

Assisted suicide should be legal - if not for everyone then at least for those with terminal illnesses. He shouldn't have had to resort to this.
