Ledger Though more details have emerged regarding the exact timeline, little has been revealed as to the cause of actor Heath Ledger's death Tuesday afternoon.
Ledger's masseuse is now known to have called Mary-Kate Olsen in California prior to calling 911, which she did once she realized how serious the situation was. "I'm not going to speculate on why 911 was not called first," said Paul J. Browne, the police department's chief spokesman. Yesterday's rumor that a $20 bill found on Ledger's body was coated with cocaine has been proven to be incorrect, reaffirming initial reports that no illegal drugs were found in the apartment.
Ledger's body was released by the coroner to the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home on the Upper East Side; memorial arrangements have not yet been announced. It could be another six to nine days until the cause of death is known.
