Johnny Lewis Suffered A 'Psychotic Break' Months Before Murder

| Filed under: TV NewsDrugsLegal MattersSad Sad

Who's ready for more heartbreaking Johnny Lewis news?

The 28-year-old actor, who authorities believe to be responsible for the murder of 81-year-old Catherine Davis and her cat, suffered a "psychotic break" earlier this year.

Family sources have revealed he was actually "mentally healthy" until he had a bad trip on an unmentioned drug. He became mentally unstable as a result and began self-medicating his condition with MORE drugs.

It's not clear exactly what his condition was, but it must have been pretty bad because doctors were never able to get him stable enough to make a proper diagnosis!

Even though his family is aware he would often "self-medicate", they do not believe his murderous behavior was triggered by drugs. Instead, they suspect he stopped taking the his prescription medication and simply became wildly unstable.

Until the El Lay coroner examines the body and performs a toxicology test though, it's all just speculation. This explanation sounds just as plausible as the PCP or meth theory, but it could just as easily be a combination of causes too.

    Fuck the sympathy for this murderer. People do not do things on drugs that they would never do straight … perhaps act a little less inhibited, but if a person can kill on drugs, they can kill not on drugs. Drugs do not change you, they enhance what is already inside.
    Please stop mentioning this fuckhead loser. He is dead, and so is a lady and her cat.

    What kind of drugs? Illegal drugs, or prescriptive?
    I have a friend whose personality and mental function has seriously
    changed on mere blood pressure medication. He's going to switch to another to try to stop the problem.

    Re: @v@ – I never take legal drugs. Something for a headache, acetaminophen, once a month, but that's about it. Not even antibiotics. Actually, if a doctor gives me antibiotics for something, instead of finishing the bottle like told, I take them until the problem starts to go away, and then stop, but that hasn't been in like 8 years.

    One drug leads to another, to counteract the one you took before, and then so on, and so on, until you are that old person taking 30 pills a day. Things like antibiotics, make you more prone to quite a few things, and end up being inneffective if you take them enough. Naturally, none of the shit the dr gives you, belong in your body.

    Re: MB – I take minimal meds too. I want to tell you, though, that it's a very. bad thing to NOT finish the entire course (bottle) of any antibiotic. If you need it, you must finish as prescribed (unless you suffer an allergic reaction), as you can develop a permanent immunilogical resistence to that drug and it won't work for you if you really need it in a severe health crisis…and it may be the only antibiotic that works for your infection. I just finished antibiotics for a bad tooth infection. I don't like having to take any, but my face was swelled out like a basketball and tooth infections, if ignored, can cause very serious problems elsewhere in your body. I ate lots of yogurt and probiotics after to rebuild my good bacteria, but caught a cold before my body was back to snuff. What can you do.

    Re: @v@ – I agree with you @v@, my sister works for a Dr. and once in a rare while I have to get antibiotics,and always finish the entire course, otherwise your virus or whatever could come back.

    Psychotic break MY ASS! he was just a psycho that got a lucky break in Hollywood. Too bad he had to break off the life of that poor old woman & her cat. NO sympathy. No more stories making excuses for this poor excuse of a human being.

    Re: Ms. B Nice – Are you for real? Have you seen someone on PCP?
    They do absolutely crazy things! Things their sober mind wouldn't think of, he may of been a murderer but this guy had problems, big problems and I don't believe he'd of murdered anyone in his right mind/ sober mind - whatever
