Police investigating the death of actor Heath Ledger have found a rolled-up $20 bill in his apartment, suggesting the late actor was a hard drug user.
He was found dead in the bedroom of his New York home on Tuesday afternoon. The $20 bill will now be tested by scientists, although police said no drug residue was visible on it and refused to comment on speculation that the bill was used to snort cocaine. An autopsy carried out on Wednesday failed to reveal how Ledger died, although police believe his death is drug-related as sleeping pills were found strewn around his apartment.
