'Sons of Anarchy' Actor Johnny Lewis Found Dead at LA Crime Scene


Actor Johnny Lewis was found dead early Wednesday morning on the property of an elderly woman he's suspected of murdering.

According to ABC News, police were called to the scene in Los Feliz, Calif., after they heard reports of a woman screaming. They arrived to find Lewis' body dead in her driveway.

"He appeared to have died from some type of fall, either from the stairway, or from the balcony, or from one of the roofs," LAPD Commander Andrew Smith told KABC.

"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," Smith continued.

Sources tell TMZ that Lewis -- who was renting a room from the 81-year-old woman  -- attacked two neighbors with a piece of wood before climbing to the roof and falling to his death. Investigators claim he beat the woman to death, for reasons unknown.

TMZ adds that Lewis, 28, is the sole suspect in the case.

Lewis, who is known for his roles on Sons of Anarchy and The OC, dated singer Katy Perry, in 2006.
