LAPD and federal authorities are investigating the source of the ketamine that led to Matthew Perry’s death

The Los Angeles Police Department is conducting a criminal investigation into the source of the ketamine that led to the death of actor Matthew Perry, LAPD Capt. Scot Williams told CNN Tuesday.

Two federal agencies, the US Drug Enforcement Administration and the US Postal Inspection Service, are also involved in the joint investigation, which is ongoing, the LAPD said in a social media post late Tuesday.

“Friends” star Perry, who was found floating face down in the pool of her Pacific Palisades home on October 28, 2023, died of “acute effects of ketamine” and then drowned, CNN previously reported, citing the Los Angeles Medical Examiner’s Office autopsy report. He is 54 years old.

The LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division led the initial death investigation because of Perry’s high profile as a famous actor, and continued to look into the source of the ketamine after the autopsy report was released in December, nearly two months after his death, Williams said. .

The captain would not elaborate on the investigation, but indicated that it was a crime.

“Hypothetically there is potential for criminal convictions depending on what the investigation uncovers, but at this point, we’re not there yet,” Williams said, adding that authorities are looking into where Perry got the drugs and who supplied them.

The DEA had no comment on the investigation and spokeswoman Rosa Valle-Lopez referred questions to the LAPD.

Perry “reportedly received ketamine infusion therapy for depression and anxiety,” the autopsy report said.

Perry’s last known treatment was a week and a half before his death, according to an autopsy, well beyond the time he was still in his system after the treatment.

The Emmy-nominated actor enjoyed a decades-long career, most notably as Chandler Bing on the NBC sitcom “Friends” between 1994 and 2004, starring alongside Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow. He also appeared on the big screen in films including “Fools Rush In,” “The Whole Nine Yards” and “17 Again.”
