Drug Packets Found In Heath Ledger's Apartment

New evidence has surfaced in the shocking death of Heath Ledger, who was found dead inside his SoHo apartment on Tuesday afternoon.

Police recovered several drug packets containing an unknown substance and a $20 bill with narcotic residue on it, reports CBS.

This is in addition to the prescription anxiety drugs Valium and Zoloft and prescription sleeping medication Ambien that were found in the apartment. All of these items were listed on the official police report from the scene.

It is not clear whether these items belonged to Heath or whether he even actually ingested them.

My heart is with their families. Michelle and Matilda are in my prayers as well as his friends and family members.

# 2

Sad to say, but I had heard for years Heath had a MAJOR problem with cocaine. I would be surprised if they didn’t find coke in his system and apartment.

# 3

I’d really hold on before I reported crap like this. Look at all the false reports last night. Wait for the autopsy and resulting tests to come in.

Think about Mathilda, Michelle and his family people.

RIP Heath.

You will be missed.

is it really true?!!! He was so… all i can do is be deeply sad, it’s so horrible…

Wow, it just seems too weird.

Oh, and I hate that “friends” have come forward to say that they saw this coming and that he had a problem for some time now. Nice friends, selling their stories to everyone when he just passed away yesterday. Real friends would have helped him.

Regardless……a talented young vibrant man has lost his life, Matilda has lost her father.

My thoughts are with his family, Michelle, Matilda, and his loved ones.

I had heard he had a cocaine problem as well.

If that was a contibuting fact to his death…tragic.

sad for his family but I dont really pity those that are dead by drugs or suicide because its one’s choice to do this.

yes i agree with u CJ : wait until the autopsy!!!!!!!

i mean it is sad enough that such a young man died.
even though i did not know him i am shocked.
He has such AMAZING charisma – thats why i feel so sad.

Why should he kill himself? I don’t believe these rumors.

R.I.P.

I was an alcoholic for 15 years. Nothing my friends or family said mattered, and many friends dumped me forever. It wasn’t until I fell in the street, got a bloody concussion, that I stopped… and it took a year of therapy.
> The 12 step programs mention “God” (male) at least 7 times & many addicts don’t want religion in their lives, drugs or not.
Addictions are really, really hard to quit, & I see a total lack of understanding for celebrities who are addicts. Food addicts should be 1st with compassion for others!

Hannah #10, I’ve lost two members of my family to suicide and I feel very sorry for all the pain (one was emotional, the other was physical) that they went through before they checked themselves out. Neither one felt they had a choice.

It’s funny how sympathetic people are when you are physically hurt, but I guess because people don’t wear their mental conditions on their sleeve, depression is looked at as a self-inflicted problem.

Some woman was interviewed and she said that Heath looked unhappy and that she was not surprised.I wanted to jump trhrough the screen and choke her. It seems like everyone has a different story to tell about what has happened and people just need to keep their mouth shut including the media because their stories are false as well

Okay, both my grandparents, and my parents have valium and zoloft in their house. It is very common. So…..?

Do we really need to know if there were drugs in his system?

the ‘wait till the autopsy’ people are just p*issed cos they’ve found out he wasn’t a saint and that its possible his demise wasn’t an accident but self inflicted.
get a life. its not why he died thats tragic, its because.
any young person’s (apart from britney spears, she needs to die asap and her family all agree) death is a tragedy. we’re all supposed to die old, in our beds with our loved ones around us having lived a fulfilled life, but life doesn’t work out that way. stop fawning ‘Why, God, Why!’ all the time over this boards, you teenyboppers all sound like a bunch of hysterical widows at a wake. face it, the man is dead and now its time for the media and us to stfu and leave his family alone to grieve their loss

Hope your in a better place @ 01/23/2008 at 2:13 pm

#14 – yes thank you, your exactly right. I was trying to explain that yesterday as well. While suicide is a selfish act to a degree, its not as easy as “I’m feeling like sh*t today, I’d rather not be here”. It’s safe to say that none of us have never experienced depression to the point where we felt suicide was the only option. I was in a really deep depression for about 4 years and it was torture but I never once thought seriously about suicide. I can’t imagine what people must go through before they make that decision.

Its the same with alcoholism and drug addiction. Its not as easy as deciding one day that you don’t want to drink or take drugs anymore. They are mental conditions and those are the scariest kind because nobody can tell whats going on beneath the surface except the person who is experiencing it.

That’s why no there’s no role model in Hollywood. Many are homewreckers and many are on drugs.

sucha bum deal.

I wanted to say too that celebrity/fame can take people into very dark places that none of us probably could imagine. I think it’s very difficult to deal with dark places which everyone visits in their lifetimes, but for a celeb in the public eye, I think it is immensely more difficult.

Everyone has demons IMO.

I think Heath was depressed over his break-up, though I don’t know.
Interesting that Jack Nicholson’s reaction upon hearing of his death reacted with ‘I warned him’ or something to that affect.

Still, it’s such a tragedy. A shock.

It is very sad to lose a talent like Heath. He was never typecasted on any roles. He was versatile. I saw him as the next Jack Nicholson. My heart goes out to his family esp. his daughter. May he rest in peace.

ohhhhhhhhh that’s so sad i loved him since i saw him on brokeback mountain he was such a great actor very nice person
all my prayers are with his family an matilda
