Johnny Lewis from 'Sons of Anarchy' found dead after homicide



tbd-johnnylewis092812.jpgActor Johnny Lewis, best known lately as Half Sack on Sons of Anarchy, was found dead after allegedly killing an 81-year-old woman at an L.A. residence, ABC News reports.

Police say the 28-year-old was discovered in the driveway after an altercation in which Catherine Davis, the owner of the property on which they both died, was found severely beaten. Investigators added that Lewis had also attacked a neighbor and a handyman with a 2x4 before Lewis seemingly fell from the roof and died. TMZ reports police sources think Lewis was high on either PCP or meth at the time.

"He appeared to have died from some type of fall, either from the stairway, or from the balcony, or from one of the roofs," a police spokesperson told ABC. "The best we're piecing together now is that it appears that some type of altercation occurred inside of the house resulting in the death of the woman. Then this individual ran outside, had an altercation with a couple of neighbors, ran back into the house and by the time we got here, he had fallen or had somehow died on the driveway."

A dead cat was also found in Davis' home, ABC adds. To hear people tell it, this was not a surprise, either.

"It was a tragic end for an extremely talented guy, who unfortunately had lost his way," Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter said in a statement. Lewis’ character had been written off in 2009. "I wish I could say that I was shocked by the events last night, but I was not. I am deeply sorry that an innocent life had to be thrown into his destructive path."

Lewis also starred in The Runaways, The O.C. and Boston Public. He dated Katy Perry a few years ago, too. While police investigate, they are not searching for any other suspects.
