Smith said that a public memorial was expected in the coming days in Los Angeles, reports Contactmusic.
He told reporters that Ledger's body would be flown to Perth, where he would be laid to rest after a private family funeral.

The cause of Ledger's untimely death is still inconclusive, with a more detailed autopsy report expected late next week.
