Matthew needed help

Matthew Perry, known for his iconic role as Chandler Bing, was found lifeless in his hot tub in the luxurious Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles.

The initial shock of his drowning turned to bewildered sorrow as a toxicology report revealed a more sinister cause: the acute effects of ketamine.

As the investigation unfolds, TMZ reports that both local police and the DEA are piecing together how Perry, who had bravely fought addiction, came to possess the ketamine that led to his demise. With interviews targeting Hollywood's elite, especially those with a history of drug use, the mystery deepens. Yet, no arrests have been made.

Both local police and the DEA are reportedly involved in the investigation.

Sources told the outlet that authorities have already interviewed key people in Hollywood, namely people who have a history of drug use or abuse.

Perry's struggle wasn't a secret. In his memoir, 'Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing,' he candidly shared his journey through rehab, surgeries, and near-death experiences.

He went to rehab 15 times and had undergone 14 surgeries to try and mitigate the damage done to his stomach lining due to alcohol and opioid use.

The actor claimed that he almost died in 2018 due to a gastrointestinal perforation. He spent two weeks in a coma and five months in the hospital. He also had to use a colostomy bag for nine months.

Despite spending nearly $9 million on sobriety efforts, Perry had been clean since May 2021, making his death all the more tragic.
