Tony Scott

Suicide Note

Does NOT Reveal Motive

8/24/2012 7:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0824_tony_scott_gettyTony Scott did not explain why he decided to take his own life in the suicide note he left for loved ones ... but did offer a final emotional farewell ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the investigation tell TMZ ... the note was "short and sweet." Tony said in the note he loved his wife and his 2 kids -- Max and Frank.

We're told Scott's wife has not told investigators about anything that might have triggered a suicide, although as we first reported she did tell investigators Scott did NOT have brain cancer or any other significant medical problem.

Selfish coward ! People can compliment him all they want because of his movies. I liked his movies too. But by him taking his own life is so wrong. Imagine having a loved one do this to you. You will never be able to say good bye. You will never be able to say I love you one last time. You will never be able to smile and look into that persons eyes. And his two kids will grow up without a father. I know death happens. I accept that. But this coward made it happen. That was so wrong ! It was so wrong what he did to his loved ones. How dare him write that he loved his family and do what he did. Total selfish coward !

People always want to believe, when somebody has done something like this, it's because something was "wrong" with them. I think sometimes people kill themselves just because they feel like it.

That's too bad. His family is always going to struggle with the "why". If he had had inoperable cancer, I would have understood why he wanted to do it.

TMZ!! There is nothing ever short and sweet about a suicide note, are you really human? I question the people on your staff that sit back and headline these stories. Somethings are just so private and personal & if you must dive into a persons life be gentle. And a person that kills him or herself is very selfish you can never confess your love for your family and take your own life at the same time. How ridiculous and inexcusable.
