Tony Scott Left List of People to Notify after Suicide

Exclusive Details
Police 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.
