Matthew Perry : Cause of Death Confirmed!

Here are the latest updates on the circumstances surrounding Matthew Perry, and his sudden death in his bathtub.

On Saturday, 28 October 2023, Matthew Perry played an hour game of pickleball at the Riviera Country Club in the morning – shorter than usual. According to Extra host, Billy Bush, his pickleball partner said that he had been feeling tired for the past week, and on the day itself.

I spoke to the woman he [Matthew Perry] played with this morning and every morning. She said he had been fatigued today and over the past week. A little more than usual. He played for one hour, then went home.

When he got home, he sent his assistant out on an errand. When his assistant returned two hours later, he discovered Matthew unresponsive, and under water in his hot tub.

His assistant called 911, at around 4 PM, which was confirmed by a representative for the Los Angeles Police Department:

West L.A. officers responded to [a residence] at 4:10 p.m. for a Death Investigation of a male in his 50s.

The assistant lifted Matthew Perry’s head from under the water, and tried to get him some air. But by the time first responders got to his Pacific Palisades home, Matthew Perry was already dead.

Los Angeles Fire Department Captain Erik Scott said:

Los Angeles City Firefighters responded [and] found an adult male unconscious in a stand-alone hot tub.

A bystander had brought the man’s head above the water and gotten him to the edge, then firefighters removed him from the water upon their arrival.

A rapid medical assessment, sadly, revealed the man was deceased prior to first responder arrival.

Sadly, it was reported that Matthew Perry wasn’t in his hot tub for very long before his apparent drowning. Law enforcement officers noted that his body was not waterlogged, when first responders arrived.

There appears to be some confusion about the earlier claims of him dying from cardiac arrest, which stemmed from reports that first responders were called to the scene for a cardiac arrest.

The 15-second dispatch call has emerged, revealing that it was his assistant who reported a cardiac arrest to 911. But first responders were actually called to the scene for a drowning.

Agent 23. Rescue 23, EMS 9 [Emergency Medical Situation 9 refers to a drowning] on the radio. In response to the drowning.

It is unknown if he actually suffered a cardiac arrest. He could have fallen unconscious for any number of reasons. At this point in time – Matthew Perry’s official cause of death has not been revealed, or confirmed.

Captain Scot Williams of Los Angeles Police Department said that his Robbery-Homicide Division was investigating Matthew Perry’s sudden death, but no foul play was suspected at this time:

The Robbery-Homicide Division is handling the death investigation involving Matthew Perry and foul play is not suspected at this time.

While unnamed sources at the scene claimed that no drugs were found at the scene, the LAPD Captain Scot Williams refused to comment on what its officers recovered at the scene:

I will not comment on what was or was not recovered at the scene, as the investigation is ongoing.

Sources told TMZ that law enforcement officers did not find any illegal drugs, but they found prescription drugs, specifically anti-depressants, and anti-anxiety drugs, as well as an unnamed drug for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy was conducted on Matthew Perry (Case 2023-14789, now removed), but the determination of his official cause of death was deferred, pending toxicology results.

On 8 November 2023, The Blast obtained Matthew Perry’s death certificate. It too said that the official cause of death is being deferred pending toxicology reports.

However, initial toxicology reports indicate that there was no meth or fentanyl in his system when he drowned. His death certificate officially recorded his time of death as 4:17 PM.

On Friday, 15 December 2023, the Medical Examiner revealed Matthew Perry’s official cause of death – acute effects of ketamine, although the exact method of intake was unknown. The manner of his death was ruled as an accident (drug and drowning related).

Matthew Perry was reportedly receiving ketamine infusion therapy prior to his death for depression and anxiety. However, his last known treatment was 1.5 weeks prior to his death, and could not have been a contributing factor.

Per the Medical Examiner Investigator’s report, his last known treatment was 1½ weeks prior to death, and the ketamine in his system at death could not be from that infusion therapy, since ketamine’s half-life is 3 to 4 hours, or less.

The toxicology report stated that Perry had such high levels of ketamine in his blood that it ultimately led to his death from “cardiovascular overstimulation” and “respiratory depression“. It noted that Matthew Perry had blood ketamine levels of up to 3.54 mg/dL, when the levels for general anaesthesia in surgery was between 1.0 to 6.0 mg/dL.

At the high levels of ketamine found in his postmortem blood specimens, the main lethal effects would be from both cardiovascular overstimulation and respiratory depression.

The postmortem report also listed other contributing factors to Matthew Perry’s death – drowning, coronary artery disease, and the effects of buprenorphine (which is used to treat opioid addiction).

While the autopsy report could not determine how Matthew Perry received such a high dose of ketamine (trace amounts was found in his stomach contents), what is certain is that he died from an ketamine, and not from the COVID-19 vaccine, or some other cause of death.
