No Drugs On $20 Bill

Earlier this morning there were reports that there was a $20 bill that was recovered from Heath Ledger’s apartment that had some sort of residue on it. The cops had submitted the bill for testing and reports have come back clean.

It seems like Ledger only had prescribed medicine at his house, which included Ambien (sleeping medicine), Xanax and Valium, which are both anti-anxiety drugs.

Friends say that Heath would often complain about being sleepy and tired. In an interview with the NY Times Ledger even admitted having anxiety and a lot of trouble sleeping. "Last week I probably slept an average of two hours a night," he told The Times. "I couldn't stop thinking. My body was exhausted and my mind was still going." Ledger continued to say that taking one pill had no effect on him. He'd have to take second to fall asleep, only to awake an hour later with his "mind still racing."

His body has been since transferred from the Medical Examiner's office to the Campbell Funeral Home in NY.


Sources at the NYPD are telling TMZ that 5 different prescription pill bottles were found at Heath's home at the time of his death.

1- Xanax (anti-anxiety)
2- Valium (anti-anxiety)
3- Ativan (anti-anxiety)
4-Lunesta (sleeping aid)
5- Restoril (sleeping aid)
