JUST IN: Criminal Investigation Launched Into Matthew Perry’s Death

Well, let me tell you, the saga surrounding Matthew Perry’s passing is getting very interesting.

It’s now under investigation by the LAPD, alongside the DEA.

Even the U.S. Postal Service has gotten involved.

The medical examiner’s report confirmed that Perry did die from ketamine.

But here’s the kicker: where did he even get that ketamine?

That’s the million-dollar question and it seems like we’re all waiting for the big reveal.

LA Times reports:

How did “Friends” actor Matthew Perry get the ketamine that officials cited as his cause of his death?

That is now the subject of an investigation by Los Angeles police, with assistance from the Drug Enforcement Administration and the U.S. Postal Service.

The Los Angeles County medical examiner concluded in December that Perry died months earlier of acute effects of ketamine. But the source of the drug has not been revealed.

Officials have said little about the investigation. But law enforcement sources said officials are trying to determine whether any laws were broken in supplying the ketamine.

Here is a breakdown of what we know:

What did the medical examiner conclude?

Trace amounts of ketamine were found in Perry’s stomach, according to an autopsy performed by the Los Angeles County medical examiner. But the level found in his blood was about the same quantity as would be used during general anesthesia, his autopsy showed.

The ketamine caused cardiovascular overstimulation and respiratory depression. Other contributing factors in the actor’s death included drowning, coronary artery disease and the effects of buprenorphine, a medication used to treat opioid use disorder.

The autopsy report noted that Perry had no other drugs in his system and had been 19 months sober at the time of his death. There was no evidence of illicit drugs or paraphernalia at his Pacific Palisades home.

The medical examiner also noted that Perry, 54, had diabetes and suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which refers to a group of diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing-related problems. He at one time had a two-pack-a-day cigarette habit.

The Hollywood Reporter adds:

Perry had been undergoing ketamine infusion therapy, which is said to help with depression, anxiety, PTSD, drug and alcohol problems, chronic pain and more. His last session had been a week and a half before he died. According to the autopsy, “the ketamine in his system at death could not be from that infusion therapy since ketamine’s half-life is three to four hours or less.”

The 17 Again star had been candid about undergoing ketamine therapy in his memoir, Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing, writing, “I often thought that I was dying during that hour. Oh, I thought, this is what happens when you die. Yet I would continually sign up for this shit because it was something different, and anything different is good.”

He compared using the drug to being “hit in the head with a giant happy shovel” but noted the hangover from it was too much for him and “outweighed the shovel.”

The day of his death, Perry was found unresponsive and floating face down in the hot tub at his Los Angeles home and was given an initial screening by law enforcement. The L.A. County Medical Examiner’s office completed an autopsy at the time but listed the case as “deferred” on its site before taking it down completely and releasing the full report on Dec. 15.

And remember the odd posts Matthew Perry posted up to his death?

Here is some of our prior reporting on the strange death:

Matthew Perry’s Death Is Raising A LOT Of Questions…

I don’t want to speak ill of the dead or speak too soon after a tragic death, but the news must go on and there is a lot to report here.

As usual, I’m not drawing any conclusions because we don’t know much for sure right now, I’m just reporting what I’m seeing and I’ll let you decide.

Perhaps there is nothing more to this than a sad case of drinking + hot tubbing which ended in a fatality.

That would be bad enough.

But there’s some stuff that you have to admit is just plain strange…

MJ Truth did a good job of bringing a lot of it together:

The drowning death of Mathew Perry keeps getting weirder..

One of the last things he posted was a video of “his hands” placing 3 cranberries on a table.

The lead singer of The Cranberries Dolores O’Riordan died of an accidental drowning in 2018.

Just weird…

That is in combination with the other weird things..

1. His Last photo was in a hot tub (where he ended up drowning)
2. Batman comms
3. The Petty Mason Misspelling by Trump [RR] Perry

Let’s break all of that down….

A lot of it comes from his Instagram channel.

Let me show you.

We start with the very last photo he ever posted, which is from 6 days ago and which is him sitting in a hot tub…..presumably the very hot tub he died in.

What are the odds?

But then it gets stranger….

He kept referring to himself as “Mattman” and started posting a bunch of strange Batman pictures all of a sudden:

So what’s up with Batman?

Well, a lot of people are confused by it and I was too until my friend Mike reminded me of the plot of The Dark Knight Rises, which ends with Batman faking his own death.


In “The Dark Knight Rises,” the third and final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, the plot around Batman faking his death is a key element of the film’s climax and resolution. Here’s a breakdown of that plot:

The film is set eight years after the events of “The Dark Knight.” Batman has disappeared, and Bruce Wayne has become a recluse, with Gotham City believing Batman was responsible for the death of District Attorney Harvey Dent.

The Threat:
Bane, the film’s antagonist, arrives in Gotham to fulfill Ra’s al Ghul’s mission of destroying the city. He exposes the truth about Harvey Dent and uses economic and physical warfare to isolate Gotham from the rest of the world.

Batman’s Return:
Bruce Wayne dons the Batman persona once again to combat the threat posed by Bane. However, he is initially defeated and imprisoned by Bane in a faraway pit (a symbolic and literal “fall”).

The Climax:
After a period of recovery and introspection, Bruce escapes the prison and returns to Gotham. He rallies the city’s police force and some allies to fight against Bane’s army. Meanwhile, it’s revealed that Miranda Tate, Bruce’s ally and love interest, is actually Talia al Ghul, Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter, who seeks to complete her father’s mission.

The Sacrifice:
Batman confronts and defeats Bane. He then learns about a nuclear bomb that Talia has activated, which is set to destroy Gotham. Batman uses his aircraft, “The Bat,” to haul the bomb away from the city over the bay, where it detonates safely over the water, seemingly killing Batman in the process.

The Aftermath:
Gotham mourns Batman as a hero. Bruce Wayne is also presumed dead, with his remaining assets divided and Wayne Manor turned into an orphanage. However, in the final scenes, it’s revealed that Bruce survived and faked his death. He is seen in a café in Florence by his butler Alfred, living a new life with Selina Kyle (Catwoman). This ending implies that Bruce has finally found peace and left the Batman persona behind, entrusting Gotham’s safety to others.

The plot around Batman faking his death serves as a narrative device to conclude Bruce Wayne’s arc. It symbolizes his liberation from the burden of being Batman and his attainment of personal peace, suggesting that the spirit of Batman is bigger than one person and can be a symbol that inspires others to fight for justice.

Why read so much into it?

Perhaps because with each Batman post to Instagram, Perry kept asking us if we “knew what he meant”:

It seems like he was definitely trying to tell us the posts weren’t random but instead carried a message.

Was this the message?

A hat tip to all the sleuths out there?

I don’t know, but I do think it seems clear he wanted to convey a message and not just a sudden obsession with a comic book character…

Then we had this video posted right before his death of 3 Cranberries:

As previously pointed out by MJ Truth, the lead singer of The Cranberries Dolores O’Riordan died of an accidental drowning in 2018.

If this were a book you were reading in school, it would be a textbook lesson on “foreshadowing”.

But how does someone foreshadow their own death unless it is planned or faked?

I’m not saying it was either, I’m just saying we have quite a lot of odd circumstances all foreshadowing exactly what happened.


What do you think?

Here’s more from our prior reporting:

Matthew Perry: “Could I BE Any More Vaccinated?”

I debated whether or not I wanted to cover this….

But ultimately it’s not my decision.

Matthew Perry’s vaccination status is relevant because HE made it relevant.

Very relevant.

Proudly relevant!

In case you haven’t heard, Matthew Perry (of Friends fame) was found dead today at age 54.

Initial reports said he died of drowning in a hot tub (no drugs or alcohol found), but later reports are questioning whether it was cardiac arrest.

Which leads to the relevant part — Perry proudly promoted and sold a “Could I BE Any More Vaccinated” shirt and urged his 7 million followers to get jabbed:

I really hate how this poison jab has divided our world.

I would love to go back to a time when funny people were allowed to just be funny.

Sadly, I didn’t make that change….

The world made that change.

People like Matthew Perry promoting this shirt and telling his followers to get jabbed made that change.

I hate it.

I’d love to go back to simpler times.

But people remember what he did and now they’re asking questions:

NOTE: this is not my opinion, but I’m showing you what is trending on X:

Good guy.

Bad demons.

Tragic end:

Note how they now say an “apparent drowning”:

Is it still a drowning if you had a cardiac arrest first?

No matter what the cause, it’s very sad.

Here was our prior report:

“Friends” Star Dead At Age 54

I saw Matthew Perry was trending tonight on Twitter and I had a very bad feeling.

Sadly, Matthew Perry has reportedly died at age 54 of an apparent drowning.


The NY Post reports there were no drugs found or foul play suspected:

Matthew Perry has died at the age of 54, TMZ has reported.

The beloved “Friends” star was reportedly discovered dead in the jacuzzi of an L.A.-area home on Saturday afternoon.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that first-responders rushed to the address with the call first reported as a cardiac arrest.

They added that no drugs found at the scene and no foul play is suspected.

Perry rose to fame playing fan-favorite Chandler for 10 seasons on the immensely popular ’90s Sitcom “Friends.”

He had a long history of drug and alcohol abuse, which he has been candid about since getting sober, opening up about his addictions in a memoir he published last year.

During a publicity tour for the tome last year, the star revealed that he almost died in 2018 due to a gastrointestinal perforation.

On a related note, I’ll never understand the debate about Seinfeld vs. Friends….

To me, that’s not even the question.

Friends may have been a feel good, comfort show, but it wasn’t “funny”.

The real debate is Seinfeld vs. Frasier.

Two brilliantly written masterpieces.

But “Smelly Cat”?

Sorry, I just never found it funny, even in the slightest.

Let me put it in basketball terms….

LeBron isn’t even in the Top 2 conversation.

It’s not LeBron vs. Mike, it’s KOBE vs. Mike.

In other words….

Michael Jordan = Seinfeld

Kobe Bryant = Frasier

LeBron = Friends

RIP Matthew Perry.
