The New York Chief Medical Examiner's office announced Monday that we should expect the autopsy results in the tragic death of Heath Ledger within 48 hours.

"We're expecting something in the next two days," Ellen Borakove, director of public affairs at the New York Chief Medical Examiner's office said.

Hopefully this will bring some closure to the actor's untimely passing.

    all in all it was sad that he died. and i have high belief that it was all in accident.. come on now.. have you seen his little girl. who would ever want to leave that behind. and he was on a role with his entertainment career. yeah sometimes things are shitty.. but he just seemed like a great person that would never kill himself or be so deep into drugs that it lead to an overdose.

    IT WILL COME BACK AS AN ACCIDENTAL OVERDOSE OF PRESCRIPTION MEDS! JUST LIKE ANNA NICOLE! IT SHOULD BE HARDER FOR PEOPLE TO GET MEDS! I'M GUESSING HE DIED FROM A COMBINATION OF ANXIETY MEDICATIONS AND SLEEPING PILLS!

    Re: Bubu – We care when "everyday citizens" die. The difference is that we all feel connected because Heath was famous and well-liked. We all knew about his life because of the media. That doesn't mean that we care less about the people that die everyday (that we do not know). It actually means quite the opposite. Also, I wish Perez would post a different picture of Heath. This is from the set of a movie… R.I.P. Heath.

    31

    Dang, That is so sad. I am glad we will finally get to know what he died from.
    Where is BRAD RENFRO'S AUTOPSY RESULTS? They are taking far too long to get in. I just read that Pimp C's autopsy results FINALLY came in –2 months to the day of his death. 2 months to find out what killed him? Come on now.

    Re: PEREZ IS REALLY HATED MORE THAN NOT

    Perez has been quite decent about Heaths death and he just reported the facts about the entire deal. He wasn't the one that bought the "drug party tape" - that was ET and The Insider. Honestly, if it wasn't for Perez's site and other sites, the tape might have aired … but all the attention the tape got– got actors and PR agencies so ticked, they called up ET and got them to relent on showing it.
    Perez used to not care of Heath, as did a lot of media because he treated them poorly. Now I can see that Heath was just a depressed, lonely, anxiety-ridden guy– which made him seem aloof and sorta like an a-hole. I see him in a totally different light now.
    Anyway, don't bag on Perez- he has been very professional during this

    Re: MaryCary – Uh Mary Carey you evidently have brain fog over the first few days of Heath's passing anmd perez's comments and snippets . Perez toned it down after everyone jumped all over his ass .

    wow, so you wont show them bringing his body out of the apartment building but in this caption you'll put the picture up that looks as though he is a drug addict before we even have the autopsy results. Did you conveniently forget about all the happy smiley shots you have of him? How convenient

  36. PEREZ IS REALLY HATED MORE THAN NOT says – reply to this


    36

    PEREZ DID ATTEMPT TO PUT UP LINKS OF THE VIDEO WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT , HE HAS MADE WAY TOO MANY INNUENDOS THAT WERE OUT OF LINE AND HURTFUL . DO NOT PORTRAY THIS JEZEBEL AS A HERO - PEREZ IS A TWO FACED MONEY HUNGRY NON CARING FAKE EXCUSE OF A HUMAN BEING.

    The results will be covered up, like everything else in this case. They'll say he had a heart attack, but what they'll leave out is that is was brought on by years of cocaine abuse.

    don't mix klonopin or any other benzo. easy to avoid a similar fate; remember xaxax and the like doesn't need somas or Lunesta. build your way up before consuming handfuls of downers. Check with your doctor if you have any questions.

    No one's TOLD that, are they? but everybody knows it

    Re: SINISTER – that is horrile rest in peace heatha

    ohh and while im here why is it that all the comments are negative towards perez hilton and have nothing to do with the articles if your on this site dont pretend that you hate it and dont waste your ltime writing in here that he is lame or watever everyone is entitled to their opinion but if you have nothing nice to say dont say anything at all especially not on his websote because if you keep visiting it then you are contributing to his hits and will keep the site running longer your just contradictong yourself IF YOU DONT LIKE THIS SITE THEN DONT COME BACK END OF STORY.

    Re: MaryCary – huh? He just reported the facts?? are you living in some kind of fucking bubble??? He reported every rumor that has gone around about Heath……then tried to act all sympathetic and caring by announcing no pics of funeral home. What a guy. Get a clue MaryCary.

    Its none of our business why he died, only his families, his close friends..they are the ones who need closure. The rest..just need something more to gossip about.

    Re: PEREZ IS REALLY HATED MORE THAN NOT – Sorry mate, but it's doubtful they'll come back clean. There is alot more to this than you know. Sad but true. Perez probably knows this too. Truth may or may not come out, but it really is quite sad and will piss you off even more.

    RIP Heath

    I don't know why ppl are complaining about that picture Perez. He looks hot! Like him with dark hair. This is from the movie set of the movie he was doing when he died. It still seems so wrong to think of Heath and dead in the same sentence. I love him! I will always adore him. They announced that the rapper known as Pimp C who was found dead in bead in WeHo last week died from natural causes! He was 32. He had a condition called sleep apnea which means that you stop breathing while you're asleep. And he took some cough medicine with codeine in it and the combination of codein and sleep apnea caused heart failure or lung failure. Anyway he is dead from it. This could also be Heath's problem > read when you have sleep apnea, you snore. And his housekeeper said he was snoring. He also smoked very heavy. So there's that.

    51

    I will hate Mary Kate Olsen forever. She is dead to me. Heath should never have been around people like her. She and her crowd are poison. He was too sweet and too trusting, plus he was sad bcz Michelle dumped him for another guy.

  52. CAT says – reply to this


    52

    I got really excited about this, and then I realized how fucking awful I was to be excited about this. You have to be curious though- I feel worse not knowing HOW he could have died. And I can't stand people who are saying "get over it, wahh when everyday people die no one cares" of course no one cares! And I don't expect anyone to make a fuss when I die either! Millions of people "knew" Heath through movies, Americans love living in a fake reality, so millions of people are going to be even the tiniest bit effected.

    And if he died of pneumonia straight up, I bet Terry Gilliam is going to feel like an asshole.

  53. CAT says – reply to this


    53

    ..Also, it is already ruled out that it could be an illegal substance. That only takes a day or two tops for them to test for, not weeks. Believe me!

  54. Me says – reply to this

    What about Brad Renfro? How come we haven't heard anything about him? He was in twice as many movies as Heath.

    56

    it's the toxicology report, not the autopsy!! we already found out that the results of the autopsy were inconclusive.

  57. miss doll says – reply to this


    57

    He didn't die of pneumonia or natural causes. If he had, it would have shown up right away in the autopsy. The doctors already stated that. The only reason we are awaiting the toxicology reports is to find out what types of drugs were in his system when he died. If he had died of pneumonia, his lungs would have been completely filled with fluid and he would have died of respiratory arrest. That would have been evident in the first 24 hours.

    What I think is unfortunate is that they aren't releasing to the public the time of his death. If he could have been saved within the time frame of those stupid phone calls to MK (Ass-H)Olsen, then she should be held accountable for his death. Why isn't she being questioned? And why is Hollywood trying to cover up his drug addiction (if that's what he really was suffering from?). And isn't it strange that so many high-profile celebs are suddenly checking into hospitals for "sleep disorders," "exhaustion," "personal issues"? I think it's finally sinking in for those in Hollywood that they need to clean up or else share the fate of a beloved and talented actor (may Heath Ledger Rest in Peace). Pity they won't let the rest of the world (and impressionable young people) in on the danger of drugs. I guess all the glitz and glory of Hollywood won't allow the rest of us in on the perils of too much fame, too much money, too many drugs…too little too late…..

    As much as I am wanting to know what happened, part of me is wondering why is it any of our business. It's so personal. What gives us the right?
    But, that is the life of a celebrity, isn't it? That is why I come to this website several times a day. I just want to know, whether it's my busines or not.

    I've been searching the On Demand library for movies starring him, and I've watched 10 Things I Hate About You, and Candy. I'm waiting for A Kights Tale next. I wanna see him dance.

    God it's so frggin sad that he's gone.

    64

    Re: miss doll

    ummm, actually they did say they estimated he died around or before 1pm so by the time MK olsen got the calls, there was no hope.

    I think celebrities are coming to his defence because he seemed like a really good guy and not a total douche. I bet they want the good parts of him to be remembered instead of the drug addictions, if he had them. Besides, he's one of the few truely talented young stars with a buttload of promise for a great future to pass away in the past few years. I'd think members of the hollywood elite would want that legacy to live on, not one of speculation.

    and dude, celebrities have been checking into hospitals for "exhaustion" and "sleep issues" for years. the only reason why it wasn't suspected as addictions was because the stalkeratzzi weren't following them around to the same degree as they do today. research any old school celebrity, chances are they were treated for "exhaustion" at some point in their career. its not a new thing, its just being talked about more.

    Re: MaryCary – Please Heath didn't like the media(or should I say the paparazzi) He did his interviews and did wonderful but when it came time for the paps to both him of his family that was different. You obviously don't know a thing about Heath. Isn't Perez also the one who put up a story about the $20 bill having illegal drug residue before he even knew if it was true? Which it was proven there was none! I believe so and to top it off he drew shit all over his face. Then took it off. R.I.P Heath. We love ya and miss ya!!

    It doesn't matter what the toxicology results reveal…Heath is gone and nothing can bring him back. I'm guessing that he was like most of us non-celebrities…probably was having a hard time sleep and self medicated a bit too much. I have a hard time sleeping and take Restoril once in a while to help me sleep. Everyone at some point takes meds…

    Huh? I have the results right now. Cocaine and heroin overdose mixed with an abundance of prescription meds. There, I just saved the taxpayers $5000. Whoop de do. Good riddance you fucking drug head. The world will be a better place with one less druggie around.
    Imagine the world without druggies. No drug dealers - meaning no drugs and none of the crime, violence, poverty & misery that goes hand in hand with it.
    Want to get rid of the drug dealers? Make it a zero tolerance crime with mandatory executions. You'd be surprised how fast it all disappears along with most of the problems associated with it. People like Heath Ledger would still be alive today as would John Belushi, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Shannon Hoon, Lenny Bruce, Chris Farley, River Phoenix…..blah, blah, blah, there's a million of 'em, most far greater losses than a gay cowboy.
