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.

60. To"Heath Is Clean Of Drugs", - you're a fool. Read the opinion of his Daughter's mother. I think she may actually know more about it than you.

From the instant I heard of Heath's death, I knew it was natural causes. Heath would not do drugs or kill himself. I am so happy to see this story. It is shocking when someone so young dies in their sleep. It happend to a twenty year old I grew up with so it does happen.

If Heath died of NAtural causes or not....doestnt MAtter.... If he chose to take his own life, its sad, but then it woul dbe his own choice. If he accidently overdosed on drugs ,that is also sad...But none of the reasons is something he or his family shoul dbe ashamed of DRUGS, which devastates people is a choice people make, it doesnt mean they are bad people,..only lost. Our disgusting Government...is beihind most of the drugs in the country...one way or another. THE CIA brings in "stuff" from Afganistan, just as they did in VIET NAM. That is how the CIA makes more money for their covert operqtions...its no secret, ask anybody on the street. THAT is why we are having a war. DRUGS and OIL and greed.
Secondly, crooked cops protect the drug dealers, and other people i very high places(nopun intended) are involved. There is too much money to be made in drugs to have them legal. If legal, the prices would be a fraction of what they are. The jails would be empty, crime would be 90 % less, and laweyrs would make a hell of a lot less......Just thik all the drug charges, and break in chargles and violence, and car thefts are drug related. Lawyers, become judges...and law makers and they have an unspoken agreement to keep the drugs illegal...keeps the money floweing their way,.
I will not judge Heath Ledger on anything but his acting. Not his way of death, use of drugs, or sexuality...its very possible he really was gay, and it finally got to him.....not being able to be who he wants to be. The Papparazi doestnt allow it......
I have a new slogan, kill a camerman today.
