A few more details are surfacing in the bizarre case of two dead bodies found Wednesday at a Los Feliz home. A young man whose body was found in the driveway of a home in the 3600 block of Lowry Road has been identified as 28-year-old Jonathan Lewis, a native Angeleno and actor working as Johnny Lewis. Lewis has appeared in "Sons of Anarchy," "MTV's Now What," "The O.C.," "Boston Public," and "American Dreams," among other credits.

Lewis is suspected of killing 81-year-old Catherine Davis, whose body was found inside the home on Lowry. Davis, who rented rooms to boarders, may have been Lewis' landlady.

Davis suffered "major trauma" according to the Los Angeles Police Department, however an exact cause of death has not been determined, reports City News Service.

Lewis is thought to have fatally attacked Davis, then either jumped or fallen to his death from a roof, balcony or stairway at the house, says the LAPD. Police have determined there was no one present to have pushed Lewis to his death, though he did argue with neighbors after exiting the house following his confrontation with Davis.
