Following an inconclusive first autopsy which was completed by Wednesday morning, January 23, the body of actor Heath ledger has been removed from the morgue at the Medical Commissioner's office to the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

In Touch Weekly who brought the details on the late actor's dead body quoted Grace Burgess, a spokesperson for the medical commissioner, as saying "The body was picked up this afternoon by the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home."

Speaking further about Heath's body removal from the morgue to the funeral home, Grace explained "We are still doing tissue and toxicology testing since the autopsy was inconclusive. It could be anywhere from seven to 10 days until the cause of death is out."

George Amado, the general manager of the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home, confirmed to In Touch "We have been asked to take care of the body from those who are in charge of him and to remain discreet."

Meanwhile, model Helena Christensen who was once romantically linked to Heath yet denied it was just the other Hollywood public figure who feels devastated by his death. She was said to be on her way to visit the actor when she discovered he had died.

Christensen said she left Heath a phone message and was heading to his Soho apartment when news of his death broke on Tuesday afternoon, January 22.

"I am just beyond sad at this point and shocked. I was on my way over to pay him a visit when I found out. I had just left him a message and heard his voice on the machine. He was such a special and genuine person, so extraordinarily talented because he was so raw and honest with his feelings," Christensen told PageSix, adding that Heath "was so full of life, so electric. This is immensely sad."
