The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office said that toxicology tests are still pending to determine the exact cause and manner of death.

On October 28, at his residence in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles, Perry, 54, was discovered dead in a hot tub. He had reportedly drowned, but no drugs were found at the scene and foul play is not suspected.

There were lots of speculations and rumours going on with his death. Some expected cold-blooded murder whereas others believed in revenge killing.

Perry had a long history of struggling with alcohol and prescription drug addiction, which he revealed in his 2022 memoir, Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing.

“Hi, my name is Matthew, although you may know me by another name. My friends call me Matty. And I should be dead,” he wrote in his memoir.

Perry rose to fame as one of the stars of Friends, which ran from 1994 to 2004 and was one of the most popular shows on U.S. television. He co-starred with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow.
