How Heath Legder died…
“Mr. Heath Ledger died as the result of acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamine.” — A representative for the New York City medical examiner. Ledger was found dead in his New York apartment Jan. 22.


“While no medications were taken in excess, we learned today the combination of doctor-prescribed drugs proved lethal for our boy. Heath’s accidental death serves as a caution to the hidden dangers of combining prescription medication, even at low dosage.” — Kim Ledger, after toxicology results revealed that son Heath Ledger died from the effects of taking six types of painkillers and sedatives.

And just a side note… Have you seen him in pictures as the JOKER?  YIKES!!

    Combining the oxycodone and the hydrocodone is bad enough…they are the same class of drug. I hope they are looking into who prescribed these to him.
