Despite undergoing ketamine infusion therapy for depression and anxiety in the days leading up to his death, investigators determined that the ketamine found in his system at the time of death was not from the prescribed treatment.

Perry’s Friends co-stars came together shortly after the actor’s devastating death in October to share a joint statement regarding his sudden passing.

"We are heartbroken by the tragic loss of our beloved son and brother. Matthew brought so much joy to the world, both as an actor and a friend. You all meant so much to him and we appreciate the tremendous outpouring of love," Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, and Lisa Kudrow said in the joint statement following the news of Perry’s death.

"In time we will say more, as and when we are able," the group continued. "For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world."
