NEW: TV Star’s Death: ARRESTS Coming?

( – Almost a year after his heartbreaking passing, police believe “multiple people” should be charged in connection to Matthew Perry’s sudden death last October.

A law enforcement insider said that the federal investigation into his death will wrap up soon, and a decision about whether or not to press charges will be made.

Perry died at age 54 from the “acute effects of ketamine,” which was ruled as accidental.

However, his autopsy report from the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office also listed drowning, coronary artery disease, and buprenorphine, an opioid, as contributing factors.

The “Friends” star had been open about his use of ketamine — a drug used to ease pain and treat depression — in his 2022 memoir, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.”

Yet, he noted he did not enjoy it because it felt like a “giant exhale” that made him feel like he was “dying.”

While the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) confirmed in January the investigation into his death was completed, TMZ reported in May that the feds were probing Perry’s use of ketamine.

Following his unexpected death, Dr. Bankole Johnson theorized that he had “likely” illegally obtained ketamine for “recreational use.”

“It would be questionable medicine to provide ketamine to someone also using buprenorphine — a true recipe for disaster,” Dr. Johnson added.

Moreover, Perry was found dead in his Los Angeles mansion’s hot tub after he sent his assistant to run some errands. He was thought to have been sober in the months leading up to his death.

“Not only do I have the disease, but I also have it bad,” the beloved actor candidly wrote. “I have it as bad as you can have it, in fact. It’s back-to-the-wall time all the time. It’s going to kill me…”

He also made it his mission to help others lead a sober lifestyle. In 2012, he turned his $10 million Malibu beach estate into a men’s sober living facility called the Perry House.

A decade later, Perry told podcaster Tom Power he wanted to be remembered for his efforts to help people live their most fulfilled lives.

“When I die, I don’t want ‘Friends’ to be the first thing that’s mentioned,” he said. “I want that to be the first thing that’s mentioned. And I’m gonna live the rest of my life proving that.”
