New York Post is reporting that Mary-Kate Olsen is refusing to speak with federal investigators as part of their probe into Heath Ledger’s death without being first granted immunity from prosecution. During the initial investigation, the NYPD didn’t interview Olsen although her masseuse found Ledger’s body, and instead of calling 911 when she got the call from her masseuse, Olsen told her bodyguards to go Ledger’s apartment. Yeah, the feds want to know that the fuck was up with that.
The actress’ lawyer has repeatedly rebuffed attempts by the feds to question Olsen, who was the first person called after her masseuse discovered Ledger’s body in his SoHo apartment in January. Frustrated federal officials could obtain a grand-jury subpoena to compel the funky “Full House” actress to tell them whatever she knows about the “Dark Knight” star’s behavior, his possible drug use and the events of that fateful morning, according to sources.”
The crux of the federal investigation is exactly how Ledger obtained the OxyContin found in his room without a prescription. Everyone has been cooperative, except for Olsen:
Ms. [Michelle] Williams was extremely nice and cooperative,” a source said. Another added, “Everyone has been very eager to help, saying what a great guy Heath Ledger was, everyone except Mary-Kate, who has refused to speak.” That source explained that Olsen would be the final witness they need to conclude their investigation into where he got his drugs and medicines. Ledger – whose performance as the Joker in “The Dark Knight” has ignited Oscar buzz – died of a potent cocktail of prescription drugs and OxyContin, the latter of which was likely obtained illegally.”
I don’t want to jump to conclusions here, but if you’re running short on OxyContin, you could have worse ideas than calling Mary-Kate Olsen. That is of course if her role of “tampon” in the women’s prison play doesn’t create any scheduling conflicts.
