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.

How sad is this? Clearly it didn't occur to him that they would most likely find out on TMZ first ...

True Romance was his best movie. And thats because they didnt let tarantino direct it. Tarantino wrote the script but they let a good director- Tony Scott-direct it.

I read he has brain cancer. I feel terrible for his sons. If only people were allowed to die in a dignified manner with the assistance of a medical team when the time came near the end. Instead they rush it so they don't have to suffer and their loved ones don't have to suffer.

What a cowardly act, leaving his family to suffer.

No matter why, taking one's own life is always so very sad. I hope he found the peace he obviously couldn't find in life.

This is really sad. The industry has lost a great film director.

He had to be sick. But I can guarantee that after he jumped then soaring in the air, he realized that he'd made a mistake.

Prayers to this mans family. I wonder what was so bad, for him to take his own life? Just sad..I also feel sad for those, if this is the case, that witnessed him jumping to his death.
