Lewis is currently considered a suspect in the investigation. "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," LAPD Commander Andrew Smith told ABC News. "Then this individual ran outside, had an altercation with a couple of neighbors, ran back into the house and by the time we got here, he had fallen or had somehow died on the driveway."
While no details are known as to the relationship Lewis and the woman had, Smith said it's possible the actor was renting a room from the victim.
In addition to his role as Kip "Half-Sack" Epps on Sons of Anarchy, Lewis, 27, also had roles on The O.C.Boston Publicand The Runaways.
