Six prescriptions too much.

Psychiatrists are feeding some people up to 20 prescriptions at once.

he quite possibly could have had the twenty dollars out for a tip for the massage therapist... maybe he was just fiddling with it and rolled it... easier to stash when he had no pockets to put it in...

Alright, you find someone unconscious and think they need help so what do you do? Call Mary Kate Olsen? WTF!!!!! I imagine it wouldn't have made a difference but why didn't they call 911 immediately? If I thought someone was in mortal danger I wouldn't be looking for people to call for advice in their cellphone? What a crazy world!

A looser? And HE is the stupid one?

If anybody is a loser, it is somebody who lacks objectivity and prefers to believe every negative thing they hear before the facts come out. There is every bit as much evidence that this was just a tragic accident.

did you ever think it just might have been medical. e.g., an aneurism, a haemorrhage, etc. it doesn't always have to be the big O.D.People do die of mundane things, even celebrities.

There is no good reason to have a rolled up $20 next to your body. In fact it should be illegal to be in the possession of a rolled up $20.00 bill.

I didn't know they still made people this stupid...
is it only wrong to have the $20 bill rolled up? No problem with a $1,$5,$10,$50,$100?
Anyways, I'll say this once for all of you idiots...
THERE WAS NO DRUG RESIDUE FOUND ON THE ROLLED-UP NOTE, AND HIS DEATH HAS BEEN RULED AN ACCIDENTAL OVERDOSE FROM PRESCRIPTION DRUGS.

Do a websearch and you will learn that 4 out of 5 bills of US currency has cocaine residue on them. Even if Heath didn't snort coke, which I believe he did. What are the chances this rolled up $20 was the 1 in 5 that didn't have cocaine residue.

There is something fishy about this story. I think they are white washing or doing a coverup job on the truth.

oh yes! of course! and i was told the other day that pigs fly, too!
rolling up your single notes is just soooooo routine. i roll ALL of mine when i'm waiting for my 'masseuse' to arrive.
they didn't find any drug residue on the $20 either. well, i TOLD you that pigs fly.....

darling heath! why did it have to end like this? this is an absolute waste of a beautiful, talented, young man's life. how very, very sad for his family.

Of course it is a coverup...the family were always going to get a say on exactly what information about Heath's death is released. The $20 note was probably used to snort Tamazapan...one of the prescription meds found in Ledger's system...ppl get a high from crushing up and snorting certain meds, this being one of them. Roeys, dexys (Rohympnol and dexymethamphetamine-both meds) and others are also commonly snorted by junkies.
Just because the media release says no trace of "illegal" drugs were found in the note does not rule out the likely scenario that legal drugs (albeit potent prescription meds with high abuse potential) were being crushed and snorted through the rolled up note.

"died from the effects of taking six types of painkillers and sedatives."

6 types??? It's a wonder the man could stand up straight.
Why are doctors prescribing medication and not checking to see what other meds a patient is on? Or could it possibly be that he was asked and said nothing.
