Brookyn locals were shocked to hear the news of their former neighbor’s death yesterday. Heath Ledger and his ex-fiancee, Michelle Williams, used to live together in the area and were described as “such lovely people.” Heath, especially was described as, “very loving,” and a dedicated father. A makeshift memorial has been created by mourning fans and locals, with flowers, pictures, notes and candles just outside Heath’s Broome Street apartment in Soho, where he was found yesterday.
Although autopsy reports are “inconclusive” numerous sources are claiming that Heath’s death was most likely not a suicide and was instead accidental. An forensic expert who chatted with People magazine (and who they are quick to note is not involved in any official investigation of Heath’s death) pointed out that Heath’s pneumonia most likely not a cause. According to Michael Baden, “I would assume under the circumstances that if he’d die of pneumonia that would be clearly stated, because of concerns from the family.”
