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.
