The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the 911 call at 4:07 p.m. yesterday, initiating a water rescue operation. Although no signs of foul play have been identified at this time, the Los Angeles Police Department's Robbery-Homicide Division is actively investigating the incident.

The disheartening discovery occurred at Perry's residence in Los Angeles, where reports from The LA Times and TMZ indicate that the actor passed away in a hot tub or Jacuzzi. Known for his candidness about his struggles with substance abuse, Perry had faced a life-threatening situation in 2019 when his colon burst, a consequence of opioid use. However, according to a source from the LA Times, no evidence of drugs was found at the scene.

Numerous tributes have begun to pour in for the late actor, with NBC Entertainment expressing, "He brought so much joy to hundreds of millions of people around the world with his pitch perfect comedic timing and wry wit. His legacy will live on through countless generations,". This sentiment represents just one of the many heartfelt condolences extended to honor the life of the esteemed American-Canadian star, cherished by a global audience.
