Surgeon to the star Dr. Frank Ryan was sadly found dead yesterday after a car accident on the Pacific Coast Highway.
The Ventura County Medical Examiner is wasting no time and has already began an autopsy on the body. Specifically, officials are looking to see if drugs or alcohol played a role in his death.
Ryan's manager, David Weintraub, adamantly denies his client being involved with such nonsense, saying: "I've known Dr. Ryan for ten years … he's never drank, never smoked, he's never done drugs."
We really hope that that is true and that this was all just a terrible, terrible accident.
Our thoughts go out to his family and friends who will surely miss him. Perhaps, there can be some closure once the autopsy is finished.
