They better investigate further. No foul play , so was he depressed? Drunk? Jumped in the water? Im not Columbo, but need more facts here.

So far there is no report on what condition he was in when he left the party. Could have died for any number of reasons, but he was still too young.

Sad, sad way for someone so accomplished to go. He had major celeb friends, and huge worldwide success, yet died alone, too young and needlessly. RIP.

And what brought you to that conclusion TMZ? I'm assuming it's end stage syphilitic delusion.

I don't know this guy from a hole in the ground, but how does he end up dead floating in a river and the police are quick to say "they don't suspect foul play"? Seems like that's EXACTLY what I would suspect, until proven otherwise by the autopsy or evidence.
