JOHNNY Lewis has been found dead. He was 28.

The actor — who previously dated Katy Perry — is believed to have killed his 81-year-old landlady Catherine Davis before leaping to his death from his home in Los Angeles yesterday.

The upstairs of the building had been ransacked and a cat had also been killed.

“It’s a terrible tragedy as far as we’re concerned and we’re digging into the bottom of it,” said Los Angeles Police Department Spokesman Andrew Smith.

“He appeared to have died from some type of fall, either from the stairway, or from the balcony, or from one of the roofs.

“The best we’re piecing together now is that it appears that some type of altercation occurred inside of the house resulting in the death of the woman.

“Then this individual ran outside, had an altercation with a couple of neighbours, ran back into the house and by the time we got here, he had fallen or had somehow died on the driveway.”

Officers initially responded to a 911 call that a woman was heard screaming.
No motive for the killing is yet known.

Meanwhile, Katy — who dated Johnny for 18 months until March 2007 — is “devastated” about the death.

“She is devastated. She had to separate from him to get ahead and focus  on her career. He was in trouble then and she couldn’t help him. A lot of her songs were partially inspired by him,” a source said.

“I know The One That Got Away and Circle the Drain are partly about him, as well as Travis McCoy. But she was young and it was a time in her life she cherishes.”
