Thor actor Isaac Kappy, 42, jumped to his death from the Transwestern Road bridge near Bellemont, Arizona this past Monday. According to a statement from Bart Graves, a spokesperson for the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Kappy was struck dead by a Ford pickup truck after throwing himself from the bridge onto Interstate 40
The day before his suicide, the late actor posted a long statement on Instagram where he wrote, "I have not been a good guy," and "I have been abusive to people who loved me." Kappy was a self-admitted drug user, and made headlines in 2018 for allegedly assaulting Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris, by choking her 'during a game night party, as well as publicly accusing Seth Green of being a pedophile.

In the years leading up to his death, Kappy had become obsessed with exposing pedophilia in Hollywood, which he addresses in his video. Kappy appeared to be on a mission to take down people he believed were sexually abusing children, exposing them on his Twitter: "and while it's true I have outed many pedophiles that were former FRIENDS, I remained in their sphere for much longer than I should have, and attempted to gain from them AFTER I knew about their actions. And in my SHEER ARROGANCE I did not even reflect on this fact," he wrote on his post on Sunday.
Police opened an investigation into the actor after seeing a particularly menacing tweet from Kappy on August 1 that read: "In light of the interesting traffic happening around my house I want to make something CRYSTAL CLEAR: While I am a VERY strong advocate of peaceful disclosure, make no mistake, assets are in place and if you kill me or even try, it will rain .50 cals in the Hollywood Hills."
The actor took to his Instagram on Monday night to post a long final message in which he reflected the internal struggles he had with himself, confessing the shame he felt from selling drugs and using and abusing his loved ones; with the caption: "Beware the man has nothing to lose, for he has nothing to protect." You can read the full statement, detailing the Terminator actor's erratic thought process, below.
Kappy's final video was the one-hour live stream he did on Friday about his "darkness" and how it had consumed him. The video gave you a glimpse into the actor's troubled mind. He refers to a "really stupid, cynical, heavy decision" that he had recently made, and said: "I didn't spend enough time nurturing the light and love within me. I let down some really great people and it was my desire to serve these people but that desire was not born out of a love that is pure."
"I became so focused with the externalizations of evil that i did not find the evil within and focus on the light." He ends the video with the lingering message, "maybe I'll be back later. I love you. Take care, OK."
Before the Beerfest actor died, it was reported by TMZ that, "several bystanders tried physically restraining Kappy from jumping but failed to hold him." No one else was reported injured in the incident, and the investigation has officially been closed. RIP Isaac Kappy.
