it begs the question of why would she need immunity.
Can't help but wonder what she'd want immunity for.  Of course it could be something that doesn't directly relate to Heath's death, like any history of 'recreational' drug use she might have.

I'm also wondering what she'd need immunity for.  Of course, it could be something rather mundane, like any history of 'recreational' drug use she might have.

Count me in as being glad they're pursuing this.  Since TDK came out I've been hearing people refer to Heath as being a suicide, as if it's an undisputed fact and the coverage has been emphasizing that the cause of death was accidental and not an overdose.

Good point, Marge.

If, say, she does (or did) use drugs recreationally, I imagine her suppliers might be very nervous about her being questioned by law enforcement.

Maybe she's worried about being blamed for delaying the arrival of the EMT by telling the masseuse to wait for her security guys.  One report had suggested Heath was still alive when he was found.  Hard to know.

All I know is that I would love to be a fly on the wall if she ever does gets questioned.  (And, of course, I'd give you guys a full report.)  :)

That has been the hardest thing for me to process.We know for sure he was alive when the housekeeper went to change the bulb as she heard him snoring.The fact that he passed while people were in the house is really really hard to accept.Who knows what difference a few minutes might have made.I know when I overdosed as a teenager, my mium was told we were down to the wire.Thank goodness for whatever reason she went into my room when she did.Another 10 mins. I would not be writing this.
I would like proper investigation, but I don't think I want to know the results.Didn't the Olsen girl get admitted to rehab shortly after Heaths death?

I don't think we know this for sure. I remember those reports from pretty early, but also remember later reports saying he was already dead (omg, this is STILL hard to type :() when the housekeeper came into the apartment and that she could not have heard him snore.
I don't know which version is true, and I doubt we'll ever know it for sure.
Remember all those stories and rumours from the first hours/days, like for example there were allegedly pills scattered around him, and other details which turned out wrong.

Thanks for posting this, Bel.  I keep noticing inconsistencies and inaccuracies in the reporting - this says there were five drugs in Heath's boday, not six.  The one Fran posted kept spelling it "Oxycotin," not "Oxycontin."  I can't believe it took over six months to get around to insisting on questioning Mary-Kate Olsen though.

I've been wondering about this myself. Why is this taking so long?  ???

And I suppose one could ask why the police initially issued a statement saying that they had all the information they needed and there was no need to question M-K.  Why say anything at all, especially at the beginning of an investigation?

Unless... maybe they wanted M-K to let her guard down.  (Yes, I've watched too many crime shows on TV.)  :)
