Actor Mark Ruffalo’s brother Scott Ruffalo was found dead with a gunshot wound to his head under mysterious circumstances. Close sources believe his death was suicide and not a homicide, as declared by the coroner’s report.
Fans and close friends of actor Mark Ruffalo were shocked by the news of his brother Scott Ruffalo’s death from a gunshot wound to his head. At the time of his tragic death, there were many unanswered questions, with the only witness from the scene dead from a drug overdose.
Scott, who was 39 at the time of his death, was found in his Beverly Hills apartment with deep bullet wounds. The coroner’s report ruled Scott’s death as a homicide, but the Beverly Hills Police Department ruled his death as suicide by Russian roulette.

The coroner’s report disproved the claims of the police department’s investigation, citing that the angle of his bullet wound made it impossible for him to have shot himself.
Following his death, Shaha Mishaal Adham, the daughter of a wealthy Saudi businessman, and her boyfriend Brian Scofield were called in for questioning but were later released.

Adham, who said she visited the late 39-year-old to pick up the keys to her Land Rover, which he had borrowed, saw him playing with a gun and shot himself in the head. She claimed she fled the scene in fear after the incident.
They were also booked on suspicion of attempted murder before their release as various fingerprints were found on the gun, including Scott’s. Later on, Adham was reported dead from a drug overdose three years after the incident.
Close friends and relatives of the 39-year-old Scott praised him for his sense of humor and his easy-going lifestyle.

Scott’s death was said to have left a void in the hearts of his family, especially his brother Mark who was by his bedside after the unprovoked shooting until his death.
Mark, himself had been through a series of tragedy including having a benign brain tumor removed in 2002 that left part of his face temporarily paralyzed but losing his brother was a crushing experience.

Mark noted that his younger brother played a huge role in his career. The two brothers took brave steps in leaving San Diego in search of greener pastures in Los Angeles. At the time, Mark was an unknown actor hoping for his big break.
While Mark pursued his movie career, Scott trained as a hairdresser. Both brothers had humble beginnings and reportedly once lived in a $600-a-month apartment and shared a full-sized bed.
Mark has since turned to his pain for inspiration. He uses his movies to keep Scott’s memory alive, remembering him for the man he was and the man he could have been.
Close friends and relatives of the 39-year-old Scott praised him for his sense of humor and his easy-going lifestyle. It remains a shame that his death remains an unsolved mystery to this day.
