Heath died from a heart attack, not an overdose

maybe; nothing conclusive yet

Heath Ledger may have died from natural causes, not a drug overdose, because the amount of drugs in his system was too low to have killed him, it has been reported.

Overdose may not have killed Heath Ledger

TMZ, the celebrity website that broke the news of the actor’s death last Tuesday, quoted sources “intimately connected with the investigation” saying that the 28-year-old may have died from a heart attack.

“It’s now appearing that the level of toxicity (from medication) in Ledger’s system was low enough that it may not have caused his death. These sources say Heath’s heart stopped,” the website reported.
Initial tests on the body of the star of Brokeback Mountain proved inconclusive, but Ledger’s family has insisted that he would not have taken his own life.

His body was expected to be flown to Australia today, where it was thought that a funeral would be held in Perth, his home city.
