Heath Ledger investigation dropped

The investigation into how Heath Ledger came into the possession of two powerful painkillers has been dropped.  The DEA suspect the drugs were obtained with false prescriptions.

The case has been dropped as the prosecutors believed there was no "viable target"

This follows on from Mary-Kate Olsen refusing to answer Drug Enforcement Agency questions.

I'm sure Heath Ledger's family will be disappointed with this outcome.
