[quotece1aef986d="http//www.tmz.com/2008/01/22/heath-ledger-is-dead/"]TMZ has learned that 2006 Academy Award nominee Heath Ledger has died in NY.

He was found dead in his bed in one of his residences in Soho by his housekeeper at 335 PM ET today. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they believe it was not a crime, adding pills were found near his body.

The 28-year-old actor has a two year old daughter with former fiancee Michelle Williams -- they separated in September, 2007. He plays the Joker in the upcoming Batman film, "The Dark Knight."

The NY Times is reporting a masseuse arrived at his apartment and was let in the door by a housekeeper, who then knocked on the door of Mr. Ledger's bedroom. When no one answered, the housekeeper and the masseuse opened the bedroom door and found Mr. Ledger unconscious. They attempted to wake him, and when they couldn't they called 911.

We're told when paramedics responded, the actor was in full cardiac arrest. They attempted to perform CPR on him, but were unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

First I heard of it. None of the other media outlets reported that, so it sounds like the Times just jumped the gun with bad info. Sorta like whoever updated Wikipedia, where I went to check his history as soon as I heard the breaking news -- his death was already reported there, by some clown who claimed "massive amounts of heroin was found in his bloodstream." Yeah, blood toxicology results within minutes of his death being reported. roll

Here's what TMZ has to say, just a quick summary..
http//www.tmz.com/2008/01/22/how-heaths-body-was-discovered/

Here's the way it went down. A cleaning lady for Heath arrived at the apartment first, followed soon thereafter by a masseuse. They both entered the room at around the same time and discovered Heath's lifeless body.

The cleaning lady called police. The masseuse, we're told, called the bodyguard for the Olsens. She called him because they're friends and he's an EMT. The bodyguard was around the block at Ashley's and he immediately went over. By the time he arrived, the cops were already there.

We're also told it appeared Heath "had been dead for a while" and there were no visible signs of trauma. There was a pill bottle on the nightstand.

Why him? Probably because he ODed on pills.


I dunno, I can't say I have much sympathy for the guy. None of us would care if we hadn't seen him in a few movies; he'd just be another rich junkie who partied too hard.

Uh... I'm still glad this happened after the Batman movie finished filming, though. That movie is going to kick ass.

I think he finally watched Brokeback Mountain or something. But seriously, if he was stupid enough to think that his life was bad enough (SERIOUSLY, he was discovered when HIS HOUSEKEEPER was telling him that HIS MASSAGE THERAPIST was ready for him) to OD and kill himself, then I couldn't care less. Call me a dick if you want, but I think suicide is as selfish as someone can get. And I can't understand how his life could have been that bad.

Anyone who commits suicide obviously has some deep seeded mental issues and i honestly don't give a shit if you're rich or not... Something is obviously wrong to a severe degree if suicide is your only way out... I'm not saying it's not a coward's way out of specific situations, but if someone is so distraught to the point where they think this is necessary, then that is a pitiful situation no matter who you are.

I just started watching the Patriot on Sunday for the first time ever and I just realized how good of an actor he really is... It's a shame to see, and I feel badly for his daughter who is going to grow up without a father now and be forever known as the daughter of the guy who killed himself with sleep pills.

Not that I am promoting suicide, but Heath did have a reason or at least motive to commit suicide. His wife and child were no longer with him along with some other issues I believe were what drove him over the edge.

Because having a house keeper, massage therapist, and other various things makes you happy in life, right? roll

I suppose you're right. It's funny how we tend to attach ourselves emotionally to these celebrities. Still, it is a sad thing when anyone does this to himself/herself. Of course who knows if this was even a suicide anyway. We'll probably find out soon though.

I just heard on the news that it seems to be an accidental overdose. So we will just have to wait for the tests and info to know more.

It is a shame in any case. I feel bad for his family as well. Such a young man with so much to live for. (

That's actually very touching music. I've heard the main part from movie previews (haven't seen the movie), but the entire song makes me feel kind of sad. I'd download it but then everyone would think I'm obsessed with Brokeback Mountain. Can't have that. I have to be manly.

Nah, I wasn't talking about the Brokeback Mountain CD. It's just upsetting for people to jump on the "he killed himself" wagon just to be able to comment on this death and speculate even more.

Then I read comments like, "Why do people like him die? Why couldn't it be Britney Spears or Amy Winehouse?" and I think to myself, "What kind of tacky person asks that kind of question?"

Whether he accidently OD'd on whatever, it isn't for someone to throw around jokes.

hehehhehe

23-01-2008 18:42:39

Yeah way too much speculation and subsequent judging was going on here.

So far no signs of suicide according to police so some of you should wait before you start talking badly about him (if you really must).

It sucks, I thought he was one of those actors bound to win an oscar.
