Another actor death today but this time in utterly bizarre and tragic circumstances.
28-year-old actor Johnny Lewis, who recently finished stints in both rehab and jail, was found dead in a driveway Wednesday morning in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles reports TMZ.
Lewis allegedly beat his 81-year-old landlady to death in her home, and then had either fallen or jumped off the roof to his death.
It’s presently unclear whether drugs or alcohol are involved at this time, but it’s thought Lewis also killed a cat, ransacked the house and got into a fight with two neighbours after the murder but before his own death.
Circumstances around the deaths were still being investigated, but law enforcement sources believe Lewis was high on PCP or crystal meth at the time.
Lewis is best known for his role as Kip “Half-Sack” Epps in the first two seasons of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy”, and Dennis ‘Chili’ Childress on two seasons of “The O.C.”. He also starred in films like “Raise Your Voice,” “Alien vs. Predator: Requiem,” “One Missed Call,” “The Runaways,” and “Lovely Molly”. Back in 2006 he dated singer Katy Perry.
