In an article on Heath Ledger’s death, TMZ wrote this:
He was found dead in his bed in one of his residences in Soho by his housekeeper at 3:35 PM ET today. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they believe it was not a crime, adding that prescription pills were found near his body.
Who wants to bet rumors of suicide will be all over the place? Maybe they’ll be true, I don’t know, but it sounds suspiciously like what started the urban legend that Mama Cass choked to death on a ham sandwich. Just because someone is dead and something is found next to them doesn’t mean that it caused their death!
