The cause of death for Matthew Perry has been listed as “deferred” by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner.
This means that the initial autopsy results were inconclusive, and further investigation is needed to determine the cause of death. The medical examiner’s office has not provided a timeline for when the cause of death will be determined, but it is expected to take several weeks for the results of the toxicology report to be available.
Perry was found unresponsive in his hot tub at his home in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles on October 28, 2023. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Los Angeles City Fire Department.
