Taking Names: Coroner says Tony Scott’s notes give no reason for death
Question of the Day
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.
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
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.
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.
