Background

Matthew Perry, best known for his role in hit TV show Friends, has passed away at his home on Saturday at age 54.

Perry’s death is still under investigation, but police have announced that no foul play is suspected.

According to Captain Scot Williams of the LAPD Robbery-Homicide Division, “The Robbery-Homicide Division is handling the death investigation involving Matthew Perry and foul play is not suspected at this time.” Captain Williams adds, “I will not comment on what was or was not recovered at the scene, as the investigation is ongoing.”

Perry was a fierce advocate for drug addiction recovery, a topic that is close to his heart as it was something he struggled with over the years.

“Obviously, because I was on ‘Friends,’ more people will listen to me. So I’ve got to take advantage of that, and I’ve got to help as many people as I can,” Perry said in an interview.

Let us remember his light and the joy he spread.
Rest in peace, Matthew Perry.
