Heath Ledger May Have Died of Natural Causes

by at . Comments

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

According to TMZ, it' appears that the level of toxicity (from medication) in Ledger's body was so low it may not have caused his death.

Sources are saying Heath Ledger's heart stopped. It could have been a heart attack that took his life, but it's not certain ... at least not yet.

It's rare for a 28-year-old to die of natural causes, but possible. Initial autopsy results were inconclusive, and now this report. Interesting, to say the least.

Many this will shut John Gibson up, although we doubt it. In any case, we will keep you posted as more details about Heath's tragic death are learned.

Heath Ledger (1979-2008) was laid to rest privately late last week.

Also, authorities do not believe a housekeeper heard Ledger snoring when walking in his bedroom at around 1:00 p.m., as has been reported.

A fireman observed rigor mortis in Ledger's jaw shortly after arriving on scene at around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, when Heath was found dead.

Officials believe Ledger was dead for about three hours prior to their arrival at his apartment, ruling out the possibility of snoring around 1 p.m.

Authorities are also annoyed at reports that there may have been a plot to remove drugs from Ledger's apartment before cops and firemen arrived.

There are reports that the masseuse called Mary-Kate Olsen and a plot was hatched to have her bodyguard remove drugs. Not so, authorities say.

The cops were there the entire time the bodyguard was present, and there would have been no opportunity to carry out such a plan.

There's always so much sensationalism and gossip when a celebrity, especially one so young, dies unexpectedly like this. It's logical to assume that, until the results of toxicology tests, etc, on Heath Ledger's body have been released, his death may well have been due to natural causes. It's not uncommon for young people to die suddenly from undiagnosed medical conditions, i.e. a heart problem. Whether Heath Ledger died from a sudden heart attack or some other condition or circumstance remains to be seen and I hope for his family's sake, and especially for his daughter, that he didn't in fact take his own life or die from from an inadvertent overdose.

It is tragic when the toxicology of man made pharmaceutical medication, over the counter,behind the counter. Death may not have occurred by mixing kava kava,valerian and chamomile, ...or california poppy, or lemon balm, acaia, gogi, hawthorne, lady slipper or any other nature made herb. It would not interrupt the electrical system of a human..... anti- depressant, human made pharmaceutical, or anti anxiety pharmaceutical....isolates that do not exist in nature can create unknown elements in the human electrical system, and when a society has thousands of different companies competing for our doller, there is a greater probability of human error. Where is the Godnature of how we nourish one another, plants, people, animals, planet? It is tragic, it is sad that we lose one another this way. May you all have access to nature made,cruelty free medicinals for all of your days and all of your eves,for all of your lives. lesson one
