Shock of all shocks – Heath Ledger overdosed

Is anyone really surprised by the fact that Heath Ledger overdosed on six drugs?  It’s not every day a healthy 28 year old just drops dead, unless:

The six drugs found in his system were oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine, the medical examiner’s office said.

The drugs are the generic names for the OxyContin painkiller, the anti-anxiety drug Valium, Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug, and the sleep aids Restoril and Unisom. Hydrocodone is another name for the better-known Vicodin.

The really sad thing is someone, probably a lot of people, close to the actor had to have known what he was up to, or at least suspected.  Yet they did nothing.  Why would they?  He’s in the new Batman movie.  Something like that is licence to get away with anything in Hollywood.
