The Heath Ledger case is closed

By on August 7, 2008

Seven months ago, Heath Ledger died of an accidental overdose. I don’t know what investigators have been doing since then, but on Wednesday, his case was officially closed. Prosecutors have decided not to look into how Heath got his hands on the illegal painkillers that caused his death.

The decision comes after recent reports that actress Mary-Kate Olsen was demanding immunity before answering questions about the startling death of her close friend and his drug use. Authorities say she was the first person called by a masseuse who found the 28-year-old “Dark Knight” actor’s lifeless body in his Manhattan apartment.

The DEA had obtained a subpoena that could have forced Olsen if she continued to hold out. But the subpoena, issued in April, is no longer valid because it was contingent upon prosecutors pursuing the case, the official said Wednesday. The official added that the case could still be revived if evidence of a crime emerges.

Mary-Kate Olsen must have blew everyone at the DEA. That’s the only logical explanation.

    I knew they were gonna stop the investigation. No one is going to throw themselves in the fire even though their friend died. she should be ashamed of herself though. Heath died and no one is speaking up. but, he could have stopped taking those drugs any time he wanted.

    Could the DEA be afraid of Mary-Kate? The large head, the short, tiny body, large eyes hmmm. Makes you wonder, she doesn’t want to talk to them and they accept that and close the case?? Everyone else they wanted to speak to was co-operative but not Mary-kate!!! What did she want immunity from? She’s guilty of something and she’s chicken shit and obviously not such a good friend of Heath’s after all.
