There was no immediate indication that the actor's remains were also aboard the flight.


Oh, Leslie, that makes me so sad. I do so hope he was  on that flight with his family. I simply can't bear to think of him making that long, lonely flight, all alone.  :'(

I know. It makes me sad, too. But I had a suspicion all along that they might not have wanted to move his body from the US until the final autopsy report was issued (or something was communicated privately with the family). I have nothing to back this up, just a general feeling from knowing how things operate when there is an unusual or suspicious death.

I think we are all feeling about the same way.  The Australian news sites have updated because the news day has just begun there, and they all say "Autopsy results expected today", of course they mean tomorow in New York!

My coworker was reflecting earlier today on how the cause of death has not yet been revealed for Brad Renfro, who died on January 15th, and apparently it hasn't been due to lack of effort on the part of those conducting the autopsy. I don't know how likely or common it is, but it seems that some causes of death may remain inconclusive, despite all the tools offered by modern forensics. I don't know if this will be the case with either Renfro or Heath, but it seems like a possibility we might have to come to terms with.

You know, reading all the threads and talking to others makes me realize what incredibly diverse feelings and beliefs we have about death.

I mean, some believe one's soul moves on to an afterlife; some believe dying means an absolute end to existence.

I don't know.  I don't mean any disrespect to anybody's beliefs, because anyone's guess is as good as mine.  But personally, the thought wouldn't occur to me that Heath is still conscious in his body, thinking "Crikey, this is a lonely flight without me rellies . . . "

You're not alone, Laura, that was my first thought too, when I read that post.
