The official autopsy report for Sons of Anarchy actor Johnny Lewis has been released.
The 28 year-old was found dead in the driveway of his Los Feliz residence in September, along with his 81 year-old landlady who is believed to have been killed by Lewis. Due to lack of evidence that he jumped or was pushed, the report states that his fall from the roof of his home was an accident - not a suicide, as what was previously thought.
"He appears to have jumped from an elevated terrace to the driveway while attempting to flee the scene. During the approximately 15-foot drop he apparently lost his balance or struck an object. This caused him to land so his head impacted the concrete driveway," wrote investigator Jerry McKibben.
The autopsy also stated that there were no drugs found in his system at the time of death.
Whitney Houston's death was reportedly caused by prescription drugs and alcohol.
An autopsy on the 48-year-old singer - who was found dead in the bath of her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday - has been completed and Los Angeles County Coroner officials have told her relatives that she did not drown.
Sources told TMZ.com that the coroner did not find enough water in Whitney's lungs to suggest she died in the bath, but they believe her passing was a result of the combination of alcohol, Xanax and other prescription drugs she had taken. It is believed that Whitney's official cause of death will not be released for some time to allow police to complete investigations.
"The Beverly Hills Police Department has requested the Coroner's Office put the results on a 'security hold,' because it could hamper their ongoing investigation," a source told RadarOnline.com.
Whitney's mother reportedly plans to have the singer's body flown back to Atlanta tomorrow now the autopsy is complete.

Although the actor’s name had been linked to an ongoing illegal drug ring, Corey Haim’s death was not a result of any substances.
The Los Angeles County Coroner officially announced today that the Lost Boy star died on March 10 due to natural causes.
The 38-year-old, who had had troubles with addiction, passed away as a result of pneumonia complicated by an enlarged heart, bad lungs and narrowed blood vessels. While there were traces of marijuana and other medications in his system, they had “no significant contributing factors” in his death.
According to the autopsy report, Haim’s mother admitted getting rid of prescription medications in the home after his death “because she didn’t want anyone else to get hold of the medication and she didn’t know the police would be responding to her residence.”
