LOS ANGELES (AP) – 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.

Winter says one of the notes left in his car was a list of emergency contact numbers and another included messages to friends and loved ones.
