Heath Ledger To Be Buried In Australia

Heath Ledger is set to be buried in his home town of Perth, Australia. The actor's body was transported today from the New York medical examiner's office, where an autopsy was performed this morning, to the Frank E. Campbell funeral chapel. The Frank E. Campbell funeral chapel has been the final stop for many of the world's most famous names including Jackie Kennedy Onassis, John Lennon, Judy Garland and Luther Vandross.

A source at the funeral home tells that they are preparing to ship Heath's body as soon as possible. Although the actor’s family is still believed to be in Australia, his ex-fiancee, Michelle Williams, who is also the mother of his child, was flying into New York from Sweden today.

West Australian newspaper is reporting that Heath had sworn off alcohol at Christmastime amid a bout of anxiety over being unable to see his daughter Matilda, 2. Heath was distressed over his split with Michelle Williams and being away from Matilda. He was "quite upset because he couldn't see his daughter as much as he'd like to. He was traveling so much and I think he was just frustrated with it all."
