Law enforcement officials confirmed Sunday that “Friends” actor Matthew Perry was discovered dead in a hot tub at his Los Angeles home on Saturday. He was 54.
At around 4 o’clock in the afternoon, police were called to his residence after he was found lifeless.
The individuals, who spoke anonymously due to the ongoing inquiry, did not provide a specific cause of death. According to reports, no narcotics were discovered at the scene.
Moreover, according to police enforcement, they don’t think anything sinister happened. The Times’ request for response from Perry’s camp went unanswered.
