Ledger Case Being Dropped

A law enforcement official says federal prosecutors have decided not to pursue a criminal case into how Heath Ledger obtained the painkillers that contributed to his overdose death.

The decision comes after recent reports that actress Mary-Kate Olsen, a close friend of Ledger's, was demanding immunity before answering questions about his death.

    Go figure! That's what happens when you bring matters in front of an Olsen twin. I bet somebody got a nice payoff!

    Heath Ledger's death was so sad, what a waste of talent. Anyone who hasn't seen him in "The Dark Knight", should! Wow! Fantastic performance!
