September 26, 2012: Scientologist Johnny Lewis had been released from the Los Angeles County Jail five days earlier. The 28-year-old actor had served a 303-day sentence for charges of assault and breaking and entering.
Suddenly, and for reasons that remain a mystery, Johnny Lewis snapped and went on a rampage. The actor strangled and killed his 81-year-old landlady Catherine Davis; killed her cat; and then walked off the roof of a hillside garage into the darkness of the Los Feliz night. Lewis plunged headfirst onto the concrete driveway below, shattered his skull, and died upon impact.
