A source close to the Top Gun director made the claim, but did not elaborate.
LA County assistant chief coroner Ed Winter told the Daily News an autopsy would be conducted this morning. "We might (see a brain issue), but we don't have anything medically confirmed at this time," Winter said.
According to TMZ's sources, the note found in his Toyota Prius was a "contact list" of people Scott wished to have notified of his death. The note found in his office was "far more detailed about the reason the director took his life."
