Vicodin and Oxycontin mystery investigated in Ledger’s death

Heath Ledger’s accidental death due to a lethal combination of highly potent and addictive painkillers, anti-anxietals and over-the-counter meds is still being investigated by Federal agents, who still don’t know how actor Ledger also obtained the powerful painkillers Oxycontin and Vicodin.

People reports that there were no tell-tale prescription bottles for those drugs found anywhere in his apartment.  They were found to be in his system per his post-mortem toxicology report.

According to reports, the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) agents returned Thursday from interviews with two doctors – one in Houston and one in Los Angeles – who prescribed other meds for Ledger.

“We’re still trying to find out who gave him the Oxycontin and Vicodin,” the People source said.

“We’ll search databases to see if we can find out and also credit cards records and so forth. Either someone gave it to him or he bought it himself or he got it online.”

The agents will continue to ramp up their forensic drug trail investigations, the People source said.
