    This is why I' waiting for the official report by the NYC Police Department. I refuse to believe anything otherwise.

    What's really sad is that there are people sick enough out there to spread rumors regarding other people's death. It really is.

    I guess whatever sells newspapers :dry:.

    This report just makes it even more of a mystery... I don't think they are implying anything.

    BY NO means am I trying to imply anything other than this is making his death a much BIGGER mystery. I also think it's important to be informed on that stuff since we all really respect the guy on these boards.

    How is it more of a mystery? His masseuse called Mary Kate because she probably just thought he was passed out or drugged out and didnt want it in the media. No conspiracy lol, but thats what celebrities have to consider. And his masseuse not having a license, heres a news flash, who cares lol. She was probably a friend or something that just did it part time. No mystery, just gossip crap

    I don't know, if I were a member of his family and some unlicensed masseuse called MARY KATE OLSON before 911 with Heath lying naked on the ground and looking dead concerns me. Not to mention that I would assume a licensed masseuse might know CPR.

    In most counties in California you are required to have CPR certification to receive a license to administer massages. I don't know about New York, but I would assume it would be pretty much the same nationwide.

    It is possible to have serious adverse reactions to combinations of anti-depressants and sleeping pills, but usually prescription drugs are closely monitored for that reason. If medical professionals can't verify what medication combination did it right away, it probably wasn't a simple reaction to pills. It seems very strange that everything is "inconclusive."

    Well I would think that 'medical professionals' need blood tests and toxicology reports in order to confirm its a reaction to the pills. They're not going to confirm that by looking at his heart and lungs and organs in the autopsy are they? Thats why they're waiting for the blood test results.

    I'm guessing there wasn't like... a whole bottle of sleeping pills worth in his stomach contents that would have made it "obvious." You know guys, for all we know he could have had something random and not prescription drug related... like a blood clot or something. Although I wonder if they would find that in an autopsy. Well, they only took 2 hours to do it, so I doubt it was very thorough. It would take more than 2 hours to look at every organ and the brain to try to find something like that.

    Sigh.

    The masseuse not calling 911 until after calling Mary Kate 4 times is just beyond astounding.

    Not if it was a simple matter of which drugs he had in his cabinet. If it was not obvious that the drugs themselves aren't compatible, then it is something else, either overdose or something completely unrelated... in which case it should have been in the autopsy. I've had a family member take prescription drugs that were unsafe together, and she had to go to the emergency room. They knew right away what happened: Drug A and Drug B taken simutaniously can cause heart palpations. Another thing to keep in mind is, if he was alive at noon, and not at three, the "adverse reaction leading to death" would have been very delayed.

    Also, I'm moving this to the other thread...

    That article is 2 days old, it's already been reported that she called Mary Kate 3 times before she called 911 and many many minutes passed from when she first noticed he was non responsive to when she finally called 911.

    OMG, why keep significantly bringing up that he specifically played a "gay cowboy" in Brokeback Mountain for every single article with that exact phrasing..

    But I wonder if this will end up being some kind of unsolved, George Reeves sort of mystery death. It's sort of going that way...

    Honestly, I don't know what to think anymore. In fact, I have no opinion.

    I'll wait for some official answers to come my way before I start assuming anything.
