Ledger’s last moments revealed

Heath Ledger’s body removed from his apartmentHeath Ledger‘s housekeeper, Teresa Solomon, told police she heard the actor snoring when she arrived at the apartment on January 22nd at 12:30 p.m. to clean. When masseuse Diane Wolozin arrived at 2:45 p.m. for a scheduled appointment with Ledger, she found him unconscious and not breathing. Solomon told the New York Post that knowing she was the last person to see Ledger alive has put her in shock: “I am still shaking, I can’t sleep.” Authorities found three nearly full prescription bottles in the apartment of the anti-anxiety medications Xanax, Valium and Ativan. Other medications were the sleeping medication Lunesta and the sedative Restoril, also used to aid in sleep. Upon arrival, emergency workers moved Ledger’s body to the floor and jolted him with a defibrillator as well as performing CPR. He was pronounced dead at 3:36 p.m.

    Still that maid should not blame herself. She is there to clean not be his keeper. How was she to know? By the sound of those pills though, it sounds like a deadly mix. Poor guy. Hopefully this will show people to make sure you are careful what you take and know whether or not you are allowed to mix them. That’s what a pharmacist is for! Rest in peace Heath.

    Well said Karen.

    Well, since the bottles were nearly full, I guess that shows that it wasn’t suicide, it was probably an accidental overdose. What a shame, such a beautiful bright young person, gone just like that.

    wow.. if ur such a homophobe u realize u dnt hv to c these movies u idiot.. and it is just a movie

    He’s not a homophobe, he’s trying to show he’s macho to his friends…in reality he loved the movie, why else would he give such a vivid description!

    Just curious, does anybody know why he was taking sleeping pills? Don’t know if that was what caused his death but he said after working some recent shoots, he got insomnia. Figure i’d just throw it out there in something interesting i heard in one of his interviews.

    I heard he used sleeping pills because working on some of his movies and travelling so much gave him insomnia. Happens to a lot of people, I’ve used them before and my life isn’t nearly as hectic as his was.
    And what are all these homophobe comments? I posted the anonymous Jan 25 5:44pm comment, and it had nothing to do with his movies or with homosexuals. I said he was a bright beautiful person, because that’s what he was. And I wasn’t trying to be macho to anybody, I don’t know how you took it that way, but I’m female.
    So, Kev & Bry, please explain.

    who really cares anyway? world war 3 is about to start, the economy is going in the tank and we’re all just so worried about how many xanax some loser took?

    i’m sure he had reasons for doing whatever he did … or didn’t do. point is they’re his reasons so let him go already and get on with your lives!!!

    but according to our resident expert on this gossip (karen) he had a heart attack; i didn’t know the rest of the tox scans came back.

    I take our resident expert with a grain of salt. She had already had the cause of death down as suicide (o/d) remember?
    I don’t think the final results are in yet anyway, but I’m sure when they are, we’ll be reading about it here first!

    Well, at least you know my name. What’s yours?? I usually don’t go reading a hell of a lot of gossip but he was worth reading into. You guys really don’t read into more than you like to….Too bad you can’t read what I said again….I said I hoped it was not an od. I didn’t say it was. I asked what is it with stuff like od’s and dui’s coming out of hollywood? I didn’t say it was Heath. Learn to read a little closer. By the way, when you see my name, don’t assume its always me. I have a double on here who thinks he/she is funny to use my name. Its happened to others too. I don’t come on here everyday. Everyone has to amuse themselves somehow I guess. Strange way to do it.

    that on is sooo old.

    as for his last moments, that’s pretty clear. open mouth, take pills, die.
