Heath Ledger Found Dead

From ComingSoon.Net

Heath Ledger was found dead in his Lower Manhattan apartment on Tuesday. He was 28. The Australian-born actor was nominated for an Oscar for Brokeback Mountain. In 2005, he met Michelle Williams during the filming of the drama. The two had lived in Brooklyn and had a daughter, Matilda, but split up last year.

Ledger was found by a housekeeper who had gone to wake him for an appointment with a masseuse in the Soho apartment, according to New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne. “Pills were found in the vicinity of the bed,” Browne said, “This is being looked at as a possible overdose, but that is not confirmed yet.” The medical examiner’s office planned an autopsy on Wednesday, spokeswoman Ellen Borakove said.

He was declared dead at about 3:30 p.m., Browne said.
