Director Tony Scott, who committed suicide by jumping off a bridge a week ago, was laid to rest in a private memorial attended by friends and family only.

His older brother, director Ridley Scott, was among the mourners who gathered on Friday to pay Tony their last respects, reported Ace Showbiz.

Meanwhile, the reason Tony took his own life continues to be a mystery as Los Angeles County coroner is still working on his autopsy and the LA Police Department is still looking into the case.

Law enforcement said that the 68-year-old Top Gun helmer left two suicide notes before he jumped to his death from Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro on August 19.

Tony, who had just completed a new movie, reportedly did not leave clues for his family about his motive.

The note left for them was said to contain "instructions". His family was forced to deny that Tony had health problem.
