Ex "Sons of Anarchy" Star

NOT on Drugs

During Landlady Murder

breaking news

Former "Sons of Anarchy" actor Johnny Lewis did not have drugs -- of any kind -- in his system when he killed his landlady and then fell off a roof to his death ... this according to the autopsy report.

Lewis' autopsy results were released Thursday, and revealed he was clean of alcohol and drugs during the bizarre incident back in September.

As TMZ previously reported, Lewis had been released from jail just 6 days before the killings of 81-year-old Catherine Davis, and her cat, in L.A.'s Los Feliz neighborhood. His rap sheet included a string of drug-related crimes.

One strange note from the autopsy report -- Lewis' body had nail marks on both sides of his neck, and he appeared to have suffered partial strangulation.

Lewis was the lone suspect in Davis' death.

Just because he did not have any drugs in his system at that time means absolutely nothing. Imho, this appears to be a case of drug-induced psychosis. The Scientology factor is an added layer of crazy. Poor landlady and her cat. I can't imagine the terror she went through.

Actually, back in June it was revealed that the zombie-like cannibal, Rudy Eugene's body didn't show "any other street drugs, alcohol or prescription drugs, or any adulterants found in street drugs," according to the Medical Examiner.

"The department has also sought the assistance of an outside forensic toxicology reference laboratory, which has confirmed the absence of 'bath salts,' synthetic marijuana and LSD."

As DonWaltBuckman pointed out, there ARE forensic tests for bath salts and you can bet they used them in this high-profile case. Like the zombie attack, this sounds much more like a complete psychotic break.

Sorry, the post above was meant as a reply to people saying that there is no test for "bath salts". Did not mean to seem to bring up the cannibal guy for no reason. Just that it was proven that he was not and bath salts either, even though it was suspected.
RIP Catherine Davis and Kitty

Some of us that grew up in Scientology have been saying from early on that he was probably sober and suffering from Scientology psychosis. He was not the first and won't be the last.

All the people who wrongly vilified him should be deeply ashamed.
Of course none of them will see this.

What is so hard about a sick mind is you can't see that it's sick or "broken"like, say an arm or leg. A person that is sick can and does look just fine ...I know that this isn't a new concept and that it's more of a " no sh!t Sherlock?" moment but still, people just don't get it!!! It sounds like he definitely had a "broken" mind! I'm not excusing him by any stretch of the imagination but we need to start trying to understand this better and to also stop shaming people for getting help and making them feel stupid, embarassed,etc for having a "broken " mind!!! Until we all can get together on this it's just going to keep getting worst and we'll only have ourselves to blame!!! Give a little compassion and understanding to those souls that are"broken " in mind, spirit, etc. Because, believe it or not, they truly are sick. And more than likely ,someone('s) you know and love needs you and everyone else to recognized and accept they're "broken " need your help, compassion, understanding (or at least TRYING to understand them ) etc.
