After two separate memorial services in Los Angeles, it is being reported that the body of recently deceased actor Heath Ledger is finally on its way back to his hometown of Perth, Australia, where it is believed that the Oscar-nominated star will be laid to rest next to his grandparents in a family plot.

Tuesday will mark two weeks since Heath's unconscious body was discovered in his Manhattan apartment by a housekeeper. No cause of death has been announced, and initial autopsy results were labeled inconclusive by the New York City medical examiner.
