As the world continues to mourn Heath Ledger, the police are still trying to find the cause of his tragic death. An autopsy was conducted this morning, but proved to be inconclusive, which means it will be at least a week or so before we find out any more details on whether or not Heath's death was an accident. However, members of the NYPD are still saying that suicide is unlikely and that the pills found in the apartment were actually in containers and in different rooms, not scattered around the bed as was originally reported.
Meanwhile, more of Heath's friends and fans are speaking out about their loss:
- In Los Angeles, Russell Crowe said: "He was a gentle, beautiful man, a fine actor, a loyal friend. I feel deeply for his family."
- Rachel McAdams posted on her MySpace page: "My heart goes out to Heath's family and friends during this time of great loss. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years back and I can definitely say he had a wonderful career ahead of him. Undeniable talent and a loving new father. It's so tragic to see it all end so soon and sudden."
- Cate Blanchett said, "I am shocked and very saddened by the news. I deeply respect Heath's work and always admired his continuing development as an artist. My thoughts are with his family and his close friends"
- Helena Christensen said, "I am just beyond sad at this point and shocked. I was on my way over to pay him a visit when I found out. I had just left him a message and heard his voice on the machine. He was such a special and genuine person, so extraordinarily talented because he was so raw and honest with his feelings."
We continue to keep Heath's friends and family in our thoughts during this sad time.
