Federal prosecutors have now stated that they will not pursue their investigations any further as a criminal case in Heath Leger’s death. Heath Ledger obtained the powerful painkillers that contributed to his overdose death this year, a law enforcement official said Wednesday, but they will not look at this as a crinminal case any further.
Blowing in the air like wind chimes, the prosecutors have bowed out “because they don’t believe there’s a viable target,” said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because no charges have been filed.
The decision comes after recent reports that actress Mary-Kate Olsen was demanding immunity before answering questions about the startling death of her close friend and his drug use. Authorities say she was the first person called by a masseuse who found the 28-year-old “Dark Knight” actor’s lifeless body in his Manhattan apartment.
