‘Multiple people’ may be charged in connection to Matthew Perry’s death following investigation

The Friends actor's death continues to be investigated

It has been reported that multiple people could potentially be charged in connection with the death of Matthew Perry.

This comes following an investigation into the death of the Friends actor, who died from an overdose in October of last year.

A report in People, published yesterday, June 25, stated that the investigation into his death was ‘nearing its conclusion’.

The report states, however, that when it does come to its conclusion ‘multiple people should be charged’ according to a source in law enforcement.

Perry died at the age of 54 and was found in the bathtub at his Los Angeles home.

His death was initially reported to be accidental, with the autopsy revealing it came through the combined effects of ketamine use and drowning.

It was confirmed last month however that there would be a criminal investigation into his death.

His death led to an outpour of support and love from the Hollywood community.

The actors tragic passing was confirmed in a statement by NBC, the studio behind Friends, who said:

“We are incredibly saddened by the too soon passing of Matthew Perry.

"He brought so much joy to hundreds of millions of people around the world with his pitch-perfect comedic timing and wry wit. His legacy will live on through countless generations."

The co-stars behind the beloved show also released a heart-breaking statement on his death.

They said: “We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just cast mates. We are a family.

“There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss.

“In time we will say more, as and when we are able. For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world."

Perry had stated there are entire seasons of Friends he had no recollection of.

Perry spoke candidly in the past about his struggles with addiction.

He entered rehab for the first time in 1997, and had stated on multiple occasions that there were entire seasons of Friends that he did not remember filming.

The actor also fought for drug reform in the United States, calling for long-term treatment methods for offenders rather than jail time.

He also opened ‘Perry House’, a sober home for addicts, and was given the ‘Champion of Recovery award’ by the White House under the Obama Administration.

In an interview, Perry once said: “When I die, as far as my so-called accomplishments go, it would be nice if Friends were listed far behind the things I did to try to help other people.”
