Johnny Lewis, the “Sons of Anarchy,” and “The O.C.” actor (and who once even dated Katy Perry back in 2006) was found dead yesterday in a bizarre double death that’s boggling law enforcement and fans’ minds.
Lewis’ body was discovered at the same L.A. property as an 81-year-old woman he’s suspected of murdering, TMZ has learned. Lewis was renting a room from the woman and according to law enforcement sources, the 28-year-old Lewis was found dead in the driveway of the elderly woman’s home in Los Feliz. As the police investigated the grisly scene, they believed that Lewis beat the woman to death.
Reports around the neighborhood also support this notion. Neighbors heard the 81-year-old woman screaming and then spotted a young man outside her home attack 2 other people with a piece of wood before he climbed onto the roof and fell to his death.
An update from TMZ gives us more information:
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … cops believe Johnny was on drugs– either PCP or meth — at the time he allegedly killed a woman and then fell to his death.
Sources tell us … after allegedly killing the 81-year-old woman, Johnny had fought with two men for 3 to 4 minutes … hurting at least one of them
We’re told Johnny initially used a 2×4 to attack the men … and then used his bare hands.
Law enforcement sources say the men he fought with say Johnny showed “super-human strength” and was “phenomenally strong.”
We’re told Johnny tried to break into the house of one of the men … and it took 3 people to hold him back.
One source tells TMZ … Johnny had gone to a neighbor’s home to introduce himself earlier in the day.
Neighbors tell us Johnny had lived in that house before, moved away, and then came back.
Neighbors who knew Johnny say he was a “nice guy.”
