-Money in his apartment is being tested after police found a $20 bill rolled "in a certain way"
-Friends were "not surprised" by his untimely demise
-Autopsy is inconclusive
-His death does not appear to be suicide; cops feel it was accidental
-His body was not found in, or anywhere near, Mary-Kate Olsen's house. The maid who found him called Mary-Kate's bodyguard (because he was also an EMT) to come over and help.
-Pills were not "scattered" around the room. There were some found in containers in his bathroom, and a container of sleeping pills & anti-anxiety medication on his nightstand.
-He had pneumonia at the time of his death
-They have shut down production of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, his movie that was being filmed at the time of his death
That's all I got for now.

He's been found in his residence in New York.
UPDATE from Page Six:
January 22, 2008 -- Actor Heath Ledger was found dead today in a Broome Street apartment, apparently from a drug overdose.
Ledger was well known for his role in "Brokeback Mountain," and he stars in the upcoming "The Dark Knight" Batman movie as the Joker.
He split last year from wife, Michelle Williams, with whom he has a daughter.
His apartment was strewn with pills, sources said. It was unclear if it was an intentional or accidental death.Keep refreshing here and here for updates.
Just to let you know, in case you weren't aware, Tom Cruise was the person who was the most helpful post-9/ll. This Scientology shit is just so warped and twisted.... what a nut job.
Here's a summary of what Page Six thinks of the video:
TOM Cruise brands federal officials "liars" and takes credit for saving the lives of hundreds of supposedly poisoned workers at Ground Zero in a wacky new Scientology video.
In the promotional tape, the star states, with a scary gleam in his eye: "A Scientologist is someone who can look at the world and really see what it is . . . and be effective and do something about it and someone who's not asking permission to do that. Why ask permission? We are the authorities!" See clips from the video HERE.
Next, the video cuts to news footage of the devastation at Ground Zero as cheap action music plays and a cheesy narrator boasts: "And nothing says that better than the Mr. Cruise response [sic] to the wake-up call in the aftermath of 9/11 . . . If he takes a stand, it's pedal to the metal till the finish line, as in helping New York firemen. He first saw the dust and heard the cough when descending to the ruins, where he bolstered morale among firemen. The devastation had spread an unprecedented combination of toxins through the air - and it was lethal."
Cruise's voice kicks back in: "The EPA came out and said the air was clean. Of course, as a Scientologist, you go, 'That's a lie, [an] out[right] lie . . .' You know, you just go, 'Liar. Fine.' "
The narrator then returns to brag how Cruise "personally saw to the establishment of a first New York-covered detox project. And, no, he did not ask permission."
That detox program, which employs saunas and megadoses of vitamins, has been widely trashed by medical experts, and even Mayor Bloomberg has ripped it, saying, "Reputable scientists do not think Scientology has any basis in science."
An Environmental Protection Agency rep had no comment last night, although the EPA stated after the attack that the air at Ground Zero was safe to breathe.
In another video on the Internet, Cruise is seen receiving a Freedom Medal of Valor from Scientologists. Then he stiffly salutes a giant portrait of church founder L. Ron Hubbard and shouts, "To LRH!"
Cruise, said to be Scientology's No. 2 man, has been under the microscope all week after another video showed him describing his dedication to the sci-fi-theme faith, ranting, "It's rough and tumble! It's wild and woolly! It's a blast, it's a blast, it really is fun." Scientology reps could not be reached.
Tom Cruise is going to kill us all.
p.s. Thanks to Chad & everyone who sent this to me!
Amy Winehouse has just checked herself into rehab. Story:
Singer Amy Winehouse has finally said 'yes, yes, yes' to going to rehab!
Winehouse finally agreed to go to rehab after footage of her allegedly smoking crack cocaine surfaced on the internet.
Wino was seen leaving her East London home this afternoon in a Mercedes and headed to the Edward House private rehabilitation clinic in North West London. Wino, who is back to her signature hairstyle and color, had to be escorted into the facility by security.
Wino's father Mitch accompanied her to the rehab center to make sure she gets situated. Let's hope she doesn't pull a Britney and make a beeline out the door after 1 day. Either way, she's headed in the right direction so we wish her the best!
