Johnny Lewis was found dead on Thursday, September 26 in Los Feliz.

In what appears to be a bizarre series of events, "Sons of Anarchy" actor Johnny Lewis was found dead Wednesday outside the Los Feliz home of a woman who was also found dead inside.

Lewis, 28, was known for his role as Kip Epps on "Sons of Anarchy" and his "The O.C." stint.

Lewis is reportedly suspected of murdering the 70-year-old woman on whose Los Feliz driveway he was found dead. According to TMZ, the woman may have been renting a room to Lewis at the time of both of their deaths.

Although the elderly woman's death has been described as a homicide, it is unclear how Lewis came to his death. Sources reportedly heard the woman screaming inside her home and noticed a group of men fighting before one man, believed to be Lewis, climbed onto the roof. It is unclear as to whether Lewis may have fallen to his death or jumped from the roof.

UPDATE: Thursday, Sept. 27 6:52 EST -- A CNN reporter tweets that the LA County Coroner's office has named the female victim as Catherine Davis and says she died from "blunt head trauma and strangulation."

UPDATE: Johnny Lewis was reportedly released from jail just days before his death and also underwent a recent stint in rehab. He was also allegedly on the drug PCP or Meth at the time of his death.
