The death of Matthew Perry – the beloved Chandler from Friends – on Saturday night is still making headlines in many media, mainly because of the actor’s cause of death which still remains undetermined, pending the medical report and toxicology tests. .

The actor was found dead in the jacuzzi of his home in Los Angeles by his personal assistant, who called 911 (the equivalent of 166 in the US).

Police found prescription drugs in his Pacific Palisades home, including anti-depressant and anti-anxiety pills and a prescription drug for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) – but no drugs.

TMZ today publishes a report according to which, Matthew Perry hadn’t been dead in the hot tub for longbefore rescuers found him “drowning”, according to their first reports.

Law enforcement sources told the website that no signs of drowning were found on Perry’s body. Also, there has been no official forensic report, confirming the reports of the rescuers.

TMZ reports that the actor was fine when he returned home after playing pickleball — a sport similar to tennis but on a smaller court.

Arriving home he sent his assistant – the last person to see him alive – on outside errands.

Matthew Perry stayed home alone for a while.

When the woman returned, she found the actor unconscious in the jacuzzi.

Who was Matthew Perry’s assistant?

Although the name of the key woman in the case has not been revealed, according to the American media the actor had for 7 years a personal assistant named Briana Brancato, who was also a gymnast and a very close friend of Perry.

The young woman even made a post on Instagram about the death of the actor, publishing their joint photos.

“I have expressed my deepest gratitude to him on many occasions, not only for guiding me to a career I love but also for allowing me to care for him for 7 years, along with countless other experiences for which I am grateful… My heart goes out heavy, but celebrating my memories is the most profound way to honor his legacy. I hope that up there, Mattman is sending us signs. We really need them. You will forever be in my heart. I love you Matty,” he wrote.
