Healy's death is shrouded in mystery. Contemporary newspaper reports claimed that he suffered head injuries in a brawl while out celebrating the birth of his son. Conflicting reports say he died of a heart attack at home, something his personal physician refused to claim on the death certificate.

Despite all his seeming success, Healy died penniless and his burial was payed for by others. Again reports are conflicting with some claiming it was underwritten by Brian Foy while others saying it was staff members at MGM who took up a collection.
