As the entertainment community and fans across the globe mourn his loss, new details about his last hours have emerged.
Last Requests and the Fateful Discovery
According to TMZ, hours before his death, Perry requested an employee to purchase a new iPhone and prescription glasses for him.
The employee, who remains unnamed, dutifully obeyed and set off to make the purchases. The same person, upon returning, made the harrowing discovery of Perry submerged at the bottom of a jacuzzi.
