Actor’s Ex Questioned in Matthew Perry’s Death – What You Need to Know About Her

  • When Matthew Perry was found unconscious, someone nearby called for help.
  • Perry’s neighbors had fond memories of him and there were timelines showing everything he had done before his death.
  • His cause of death has been released and an actress is being questioned about his death.

Matthew Perry died in 2023, but his case is still under investigation. The cause of death has been discovered, but a famous woman is being questioned further. However, the woman has denied any involvement in the late actor’s death.

Fans who really need to know know that Perry was 54 when police arrived at his Los Angeles home around 4 p.m. after receiving a 911 call from his assistant. On Saturday, October 28, 2023, they found him unconscious. He had drowned in a hot tub before authorities pronounced him dead.

Sources revealed that no illegal substances were found at the crime scene. However, another insider said that toxicology would be part of the investigation because prescription drugs were found in Perry’s home.

Several helicopters flew around the scene. Not long after 7 p.m., Suzanne, the late star’s mother, and Keith Morrison, her husband, arrived. The announcer declined to comment, and an officer with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) confirmed that he had no information.

Perry’s neighbor on Bluesail Drive, named Peter, said he and the “Friends” star spoke only once for five minutes. The neighbor remembered the late actor as a “nice guy” and “really pleasant.”

Twenty-four hours before his death, on October 27, 2023, Perry had lunch with a woman at the Hotel Bel-Air. He was described as being “in good spirits” during the last weeks of his life. Witnesses said the celebrity and the mystery woman sat together for more than an hour before leaving.

Photos of the couple show them chatting, but Perry is said to have barely touched his food and drink. The photos were taken around 2:30 p.m. People close to the late actor said he had “never been happier” than before his death.

They shared that he was ready to get back to work after committing to developing new ideas for television series and starring in a new movie. He was said to be full of energy in the last few days. The timeline of Perry’s last hours alive is also detailed.

Sources revealed that the star arrived home in the early hours of the day he died. He played pickleball for two hours before sending his assistant to run errands shortly after returning home. The assistant returned to the actor’s home about two hours later and found him before calling for help.

Perry’s 17-year-old neighbor said he and his younger siblings were “disturbed” because they saw “too much” at the crime scene. Some of the celebrity’s neighbors could see over their back fences into the late star’s home.

The teen said he was home when the ambulance arrived, just as he was about to visit a friend’s house. He saw the medical professionals outside Perry’s door, but didn’t think much of it at the time. But when the police arrived, he saw the commotion next to him.

The young man recalled that authorities did not knock on Perry’s door and were generally silent. The unnamed neighbor stated, “It was very disturbing and very sad after all these years … of what he’s been through and his addictions and whatnot.”

The teen claimed he saw everything and felt “sorry” for his younger siblings. He said he was “very sad” and somehow expected what would happen “in a way,” but not so soon. The neighbor noted that Perry had not lived next door for long.

On May 21, 2024, the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Division reached out to X to provide an update on Perry’s case. It revealed that the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office had performed an autopsy on the late actor on October 29, 2023.

On December 15, 2023, an autopsy determined that the late celebrity died from the “acute effects of ketamine.” The LAPD used information gathered from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The information is being used to continue the investigation to determine why Perry had so much ketamine in his system.

According to a report, it is not clear how the late star ingested the drug. The autopsy revealed that “prescription medications and loose pills” were found in his home. It was also noted that ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic.

It is described as a substance with “established medical and surgical applications.” Perry is said to have received “ketamine infusion therapy for depression and anxiety.” The actor’s autopsy revealed he was undergoing ketamine infusion therapy at the time of his death.

He had received his last known treatment more than a week before his death. According to the coroner, the ketamine found in his system could not have come from his IV therapy. That’s because ketamine’s half-life is three to four hours or less.

In June 2024, a law enforcement source said Perry’s investigation was nearly complete. According to the insider, authorities believe “multiple people” could be charged in his death. But the attorney’s office would decide whether or not to file charges.

The star’s death was ruled accidental, with drowning and coronary artery disease among the factors implicated. Buprenorphine effects, a medication used to treat opioid addiction, were also cited as a contributing factor to Perry’s death.

A year before his death, Perry confessed to his struggle with addiction in his memoir “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.”

In an interview with the publication for a 2022 cover story, the celebrity said he wanted to share his truth when he knew he was “safe to go back down the dark side.” He explained that he waited until he was safely sober and away from addiction and alcoholism before writing his book.

The comedian noted how confident he was that it would help a lot of people if he did. The “multiple people” who could potentially be charged include someone linked to another celebrity. On June 27, 2024, reports revealed that a criminal investigation into Perry’s death could include information from Brooke Mueller.

Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, 46, has reportedly been questioned multiple times about the late actor’s death. Police reportedly attempted to contact Mueller with a search warrant last month while she was staying at a sober living home, but she was not home.

A source said the actress was working out at the time, but was “completely cooperative” upon her return. Sheen’s ex hired lawyers and has had numerous encounters with police since they arrived with a search warrant.

But an insider revealed that Mueller did not speak on the matter. The insider noted how difficult it was to know her role in Matthew Perry’s death, but she insists she was not involved. Authorities reportedly seized a laptop and iPhone from the actress.

It’s unclear what kind of relationship the pair had, but a source noted that she met him at a rehab center. The pair “formed an unexpected friendship at that point.” As for her and Sheen, the couple were married for three years before divorcing in 2011.
