After almost eight months of finding nothing, the federal investigation into Heath Ledger’s death has been officially closed. Mary-Kate Olsen was reportedly set to be subpoenaed later this month, but the U.S. Attorney’s office apparently saw enough of the DEA going around the country interviewing models and actresses over an accidental overdose and shut the entire investigation down.

Sources connected with the Heath Ledger investigation say the Drug Enforcement Administration set a new low for starfucking. People who have talked to TMZ off the record are now willing to go on record — still anonymously — about one of the most bizarre DEA power grabs ever. How’s this for starters … no one we’ve spoken with connected with the case can point to a single DEA case where a massive investigation was launched over an accidental death in which no criminality was even hinted at. We know the DEA went all over the country, in one case tracking down a guy in California who smoked a joint with Ledger in the ’90s, telling him he had to testify in a Grand Jury probe. And how’s this for chutzpah … the DEA told the guy he would have to pay his own way to NYC to testify before the Grand Jury!…We know the NYPD was furious at the DEA for making an immediate power grab to control what should have been a simple case. NYPD cops felt “humiliated” by what one source called “utter disrespect” on the part of the DEA. As for the U.S. Attorney’s office, we’re told officials say they were appalled at what they felt was a “bogus” investigation.”
Well, I guess you can’t really blame the DEA for wanting to interview Michelle Williams and Helena Christensen. Because, you know, it’s always good to question people who have absolutely nothing to do with the victim at the time of his death. Instead of these two, the DEA should have interviewed my neighbor’s cats. Although in the DEA’s defense, my neighbor’s cats don’t have nice tits.
