Who Was Johnny Lewis?

Johnny Lewis was a film and television actor born on October 29, 1983 in Los Angeles, California.

He starred in several productions before his death, but he is perhaps best known for his role as Kip “Hal Sack” Epps on the FX series Sons of Anarchy.

Other acting credits include appearances on the shows Bones, Criminal Minds, The OC, Drake & Josh, and Cold Case.

What was Johnny Lewis’ cause of death?

Lewis was found dead in Los Angeles on September 26, 2012 at the age of 28.

Following an investigation, it was discovered that the late star either jumped or fell from the roof of the Writers’ Mansion after allegedly hitting and killing his 81-year-old landlady, Catherine Davis.

At first, many suspected Lewis was under the influence, but autopsy results showed there were no drugs or alcohol in his system, according to Reuters.

“It’s a terrible tragedy as far as we’re concerned, and we got to the bottom of it,” LAPD spokesman Andrew Smith told PEOPLE at the time.

While Lewis’ death may have come as a shock to some, Sons of Anarchy sources tell E! News that it “was no secret that Johnny had issues that he dealt with.”

Just days before his death, Lewis had been released from prison after serving time for pleading not to file a fight against assault with a deadly weapon and burglary charges, according to PEOPLE.

Lewis’ fall came shortly after he sustained head injuries in a high-speed motorcycle accident, but it’s unclear if that played a role in his erratic behavior.

Lewis’ father, Michael Lewis, scheduled two MRIs for his son after noticing the bizarre behavior, but the actor refused to undergo them, according to LA Magazine.

Was Johnny Lewis married?

While Lewis may have been a huge star, he often kept details of his personal life out of the media.

His only known relationships were with Katy Perry (2005-2006) and actress Diane Gaeta (2008-2010), who is the mother of his daughter Culla May.

At the time of his death, Lewis was not married or in a known relationship.
