In a bizarre double-death, Sons of Anarchy actor Johnny Lewis’ body was found yesterday at the scene of his 81-year-old landlady’s murder.
The 28-year-old, who dated Katy Perry in 2006, is suspected of killing the woman and her dismembering her cat, beating two other people with a piece of wood, then climbing onto a roof and falling or jumping to his death — while high on either PCP or meth.
Lewis was found in the driveway, with the old woman — Catherine Chabot Davis — beaten to death with her cat inside at her home in the ritzy Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles.
KGO News reports quotes a statement from local cops:
“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,” said [L.A. police Commander Andrew] Smith.
Neighbors heard the old woman screaming and saw Lewis leave the house. They then witnessed him beat the crap out of a neighbor and a handyman with a wooden plank — while showing superhuman strength — after trying to break into the neighbor’s house, according to cops.
Cops believe his freakish strength stemmed from the use of either PCP or meth.
Johhny dated pop star Katy Perry for a year and a half before they broke up in 2007.
He played Kip “Half-Sack” Epps on Sons of Anarchy and held roles on several TV shows including The O.C., Criminal Minds and Bones. He also held movie roles including Ricky Howard in Alien vs. Predator: Requiem.
