Several international media report that entertainment magazine The Blast has seized Matthew Perry’s death certificate. The cause of death of the Friends actor has still not been officially confirmed and if the leaked certificate is authentic, it will take a number of weeks.
More research needed
Last week we already announced that the first results of Perry’s autopsy would not indicate an overdose, but what killed the actor remains a mystery. The leaked certificate states that determining the cause of death is being postponed because more toxicological research needs to be done.
No illegal drugs
The autopsy results in question showed that no traces of fentanyl or meth were found in the actor’s body. However, this does not automatically mean that no substances have been found in Perry’s body that could have played a role in his death. Tests are currently being conducted to determine whether the actor had prescribed medication in his blood. Investigators who visited his home after Perry’s death found no illegal drugs, but did find labeled containers of medical supplies.
8.9 Watch on HBO Max • The series “Friends” centers on the daily lives of six friends in New York: Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), Ross Geller (David Schwimmer), Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) , Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc) and Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow).
Perry’s stepfather Keith Morrison is named in the leaked document as the “informant” who provided the information necessary for the deed. If the document is authentic, it will definitely take at least several weeks before there is news about an official cause of death.
