Heath's Death Could Be Natural Causes

1/27/2008 12:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Heath LedgerIt sounds strange, but sources intimately connected with the Heath Ledger investigation tell TMZ it's possible the actor died of natural causes.

The reason they think that -- it's now appearing that the level of toxicity (from medication) in Ledger's system was low enough that it may not have caused his death. These sources say Heath's heart stopped. It could have been a heart attack but it's not certain, at least not yet. Although it's bizarre that a 28-year-old could die of natural causes, it happens.

We've also learned authorities do not believe the housekeeper heard Ledger snoring when she walked in his bedroom at around 1:00 PM. Sources tell us, a fireman observed rigor mortis in Ledger's jaw shortly after arriving on scene at around 3:30 PM. Sources say they now believe Ledger was dead for around three hours prior to their arrival, so they don't believe the housekeeper could have heard snoring.

Authorities are also annoyed at news reports that there may have been a sinister plot to remove illegal drugs from Ledger's apartment before cops and firemen arrived. There are reports out there that the masseuse called Mary-Kate Olsen and a plot was hatched to have her bodyguard remove certain drugs. Authorities tell us that's impossible, because the cops were there the entire time the bodyguard was present and there would have been no opportunity to carry out such a plan. They say it's a made up story.

As we first reported, the masseuse contacted the bodyguard because she knew he was a licensed EMT.

complicated world    

I second #6. Anyway I love how hypocritical so many people are being when many of them are obese overeaters, smokers or drinkers or all of those things. Idiots. Unless you are in great shape and eat well, exercise regularly don't drink, don't smoke and don't do drugs you are in NO POSITION to judge anyone.
Also I think his serious lack of sleep had been going on for a while and severe lack of sleep can actually be very dangerous it can cause a host of serious health problems (like cardiovascular disease) and it can obviously put a huge strain on your heart, in fact you can die of extreme lack of sleep. Anyway a lot of doctors are complete morons so don't expect them to put basic facts together and come up with a logical answer. There's an effin lot of malpractice and incompetence in the medical world. Past drug use, severe ongoing debilitating insomnia and pneumonia could definitely cause cardiac arrest.

TMZZMT, care to explain how breaking someones back gives a person aids??? The medical community says it is a blood to blood transaction, but considering how you are into beastiality, you could have aids.

Wow - just got here and I cannot believe there are actually submoronic trogdolites on here making assinine statements about Heath. Good lord - even in death there are people who reaffirm my belief in selective breeding.
