However, according to the autopsy report obtained by E! Online, Johnny — who had struggled with addiction for some time — didn’t have any drugs in his system at the time of his fatal 15-foot fall. L.A. County Senior Deputy Medical Examiner James K. Ribe describes the manner of death as “accidental,” with the cause attributed to head trauma sustained when Johnny hit the concrete driveway.
"We do not have definitive evidence that the decedent intended to kill himself. We also do not at this time have any evidence that he was pushed. Therefore, the manner of his death is accidental,” Ribe explains.
Several questions still loom in the investigation, such as whether Johnny played a part in his elderly landlady’s murder, and what exactly prompted his fall.
