Taking Names: Coroner says Tony Scott’s notes give no reason for death
Los Angeles County coroner’s officials say notes left behind by “Top Gun” director Tony Scott did not give a motive why he would kill himself.
Coroner’s office spokesman Ed Winter also said Friday the notes didn’t mention any health issues.
The 68-year-old Scott died Sunday after leaping from the Vincent Thomas Bridge into Los Angeles Harbor. An autopsy was performed on the British-born director’s body Monday, but it will be a month or more before an official cause of death is determined.
Coroner’s officials are treating Scott’s death as a probable suicide.
Mr. Winter said one of the notes left in his car was a list of emergency contact numbers and another included messages to friends and loved ones.
Greta Garbo’s belongings to hit auction block
Hundreds of items belonging to Greta Garbo, including designer clothing, will be auctioned off in December, Julien’s Auctions announced Wednesday.
The legendary actress’s “personal collection … has never been previously available and [is] rarely seen by others,” the Beverly Hills-based auctioneers said in a statement.
The sale, set for Dec. 14 and 15, will include clothes and accessories from star designers such as Emilio Pucci, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy and Salvatore Ferragamo.
Furniture, art and decor from her New York apartment and her mansion in Sweden will include “colorful rugs, featuring modern, abstract motifs,” the auctioneers said, adding Garbo was “known as a stylish and highly imitated trendsetter.”
A selection of Garbo photographs taken at Hollywood studios also will be up for grabs, in addition to autographed documents.
Some of the items to hit the auction block first will be exhibited at the Silverware Museum of Style Icons in Newbridge, Ireland, from September to November, as well as aboard the ocean liner Queen Mary 2 at the end of November.
Garbo was born in Sweden in 1905 and died in New York in 1990.
