DEA Drops Probe into Heath Ledger Death

LedgerThe Federal government has dropped an inquiry into the source of the oxycodone and hydrocodone found in Heath Ledger’s body at the time of his death:

“Prosecutors in the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan had been overseeing a Drug Enforcement Administration probe into whether the painkillers found in Ledger’s system were obtained illegally. But 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.”

How many months did they spend on this? What a waste of time and money.
