F.R.I.E.N.D.S. star Matthew Perry's sudden death shocked fans and well-wishers. The 54-year-old died on October 28 at his Los Angeles house. While the actor's cause of death was said to be an accidental drowning, later reports revealed that the trail of ketamine was the actual reason.

Now, six months after Perry's death, the law enforcement department has revealed that they are investigating the source of the drug that the Fools Rush In actor used for his treatment of anxiety and depression. 

What did the law enforcement department reveal regarding the sources of ketamine?

During the unit's investigation, the representatives stated that the perspectives they are examining are: how did Perry get the drug, who supplied it, and under what circumstances? The law enforcement department revealed that the police and DEA have already investigated a few people involved in the supply and have a history of taking ketamine. 

According to the County Medical Examiner's office, "Matthew had been undergoing ketamine infusion therapy for depression and anxiety more than a week before his death, but the M.E. concluded the ketamine in his system when he died wasn't from the treatment."

As per the office's statement, the actor was infused with drugs from some other source and not the regular medicines he took for anxiety and depression. Not only Perry but Mac Miller's death in 2018 was also investigated by the feds, as he too died of a drug overdose. At the time, the officers revealed that it was 3 men who supplied drugs to the rapper, killing him. 


The drug department is currently looking into Matthew Perry's cause of death because no evidence has yet been discovered.
