Isaac Kappy died this week after the actor apparently "forced himself off" a bridge in Arizona. He was 42.
Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves released a statement that the entertainer, best known for his small acting bits in Thor and Terminator Salvation, died at the scene Monday morning (May 13).
“On May 13, 2019 at 7:26 a.m., troopers were called to Interstate 40 eastbound at Transwestern Road (milepost 185) for a subject who forced himself off the Transwestern Rd. bridge onto Interstate 40,” the statement read. "He was then struck by a passing car. The man has been identified as 42-year-old Issac Kappy of Albuquerque, NM. Mr. Kappy died on-scene.”
Prior to his death, the star shared an apologetic Instagram post in which Kappy expressed his emotional turmoil and want for atonement for his past wrongdoings, to those he loved and those he betrayed.
“Over the course of the last week, through introspection that should have happened MANY years ago, I have come to some stark revelations about my character," begins the note. "It is a testament to my utter arrogance that these revelations had not come sooner.”
“You see, I believed myself to be a good guy,” he added. “I HAVE NOT been a good guy. In fact, I have been a pretty bad guy throughout my life. I have sold drugs. I have tax delinquencies. I have debts. I have abused my body with cigarettes, drugs and alcohol. I have been abusive to people WHO LOVED ME, including my FAMILY.”
Kappy proceeded to express regrets about being abusive toward "former friends I have used and betrayed" at the expense of "sheer ignorance." While he did not go into detail, one could infer one of Kappy's apologies were meant for his old friend Paris Jackson, who accused him of choking her at a party last year. (Read the full note here.)
According to PEOPLE, it was said Kappy's death was being investigated as a suicide.
Rest in Peace, Isaac.
