Los Angeles: Tony Scott has been cremated, and his widow will keep his remains at their Los Angeles-area home. The information is included on Scott's death certificate. The document doesn't include a formal determination of Scott's cause of death. Coroner's officials expect it will take several weeks to finalize their investigation, but they are treating his case as a probable suicide.

The Top Gun director jumped from a bridge into the Los Angeles Harbor on August 19. Family and close friends gathered over the weekend to honor the British-born director at a private memorial.
