SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) — Autopsy results have determined that the adult son of Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said Monday.
Matthew Warren, 27, died at approximately 10 a.m. on Friday, according to an Orange County Sheriff’s-Coroner’s Office spokesman. Deputies were notified of his death about 5:30 p.m., officials said.
Members of Warren’s evangelical megachurch in Lake Forest opened their Sunday morning service in prayer for the pastor and his wife, Kay, who were not in attendance after the church officially announced Matthew took his own life at his Mission Viejo home.
