    The Top Gun director who jumped to his death from a Los Angeles bridge on Sunday had inoperable brain cancer, sources tell ABC News. Police recovered a body on Sunday afternoon about two and a half hours after receiving a 911 call that a person had jumped from the Vincent Thomas Bridge. The body was identified as Scott’s, and his family’s spokesman confirmed the director’s death. Notes were found in Scott’s car addressed to loved ones, and the Associated Press reported that a message described as a suicide note was found in the 68-year-old man’s office.
