Heath Ledger

The New York City medical examiner’s office ruled Tuesday that Heath Ledger died from an accidental overdose of prescription medications which included painkillers, anti-anxiety drugs and sleeping pills.

“Mr. Heath Ledger died as the result of acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine,” the office said in a short statement.

“We have concluded that the manner of death is accident, resulting from the abuse of prescription medications.”

Apparently, Heath was an elephant suffering from insomnia, anxiety and chronic pain. Heath’s private funeral will take place Saturday in Perth, Australia. Sadly, I can’t make it. Australia is too far away and I hear dingoes will eat my baby. I don’t have a baby, but still, it sounds frightening.
