The former Sons of Anarchy star was released from L.A. County Jail just six days prior to yesterday's incident.

According to TMZ, Lewis had "several criminal cases" filed against him - the natures of which are unknown at this time - and had also recently completed a stint in rehab.

Moreover, a dead cat was found inside the home that Lewis had shared with the landlady who he allegedly killed. The house was also ransacked.

Authorities have said Lewis is the sole suspect in the elderly woman's murder.

Witnesses spotted him fighting with two other men prior to jumping on the roof of the building and eventually falling to his death.

Tweeted Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter after learning of the news:

"it was a tragic end for an extremely talented guy, who unfortunately had lost his way. i wish i could say that i was shocked by the events last night, but i was not."
