DEA investigates Heath Ledger's doctors

Tbdheathledger022908 While Mary-Kate Olsen dodged investigation by the authorities after Heath Ledger’s death, TMZ says the doctors who prescribed the drugs found in his system aren’t so lucky.

The site says the DEA is looking into at least two docs involved in the situation. The agency apparently subpoenaed documents from the NYPD and the New York Medical Examiner’s office to find out where all those prescriptions came from — and whether they were even prescribed by doctors in the first place.

For the record, Heath “died as the result of acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine,” according to the ME.
