Not much info yet, but apparently they found pills. Obviously, they're saying it was an over dose.

Such a good actor to die so young, but if it was his own fault on the od then no sympathy from me.

Cheers for news PZ. Sad though it is : ((
Found this bit more..

"At 3:31 p.m., a masseuse arrived at Apartment 5A of 421 Broome Street in SoHo for an appointment with Ledger, the police said. The masseuse was let in to the home by a housekeeper, who then knocked on the door of Ledger's bedroom. When no one answered, the housekeeper and the masseuse opened the bedroom and found Ledger unresponsive. They shook him, but he did not respond. They immediately called the authorities. The police said they did not suspect foul play and said they found pills near his body."

Just shooting out the news RD...

He was in some good movies and was a decent actor. Personally, I think Hollywood lost a decent person.

But again, a willing OD gets no sympathy from me

I don't think so. He has a daughter.

Jake Gyllenhal played his lover in the film but he's going out with Reese Witherspoon.

R.I.P to Heath Ledger, terrific actor and a local boy. Will be missed by the industry and his daughter.

"New York police sources say investigators are leaning toward an accidental drug overdose with prescription pills as the cause of death, although toxicology results expected in a week will likely solve the riddle.

New York police found six different types of prescription drugs in Ledger's apartment, including pills to treat insomnia and anxiety."

Still not confirmed as suicide yet RD and others who don't care, but I do agree that there are worse things happening around the world that do not get anywhere near the kind of coverage they should be getting. In one sense Heath was just an actor to some, someone who doesn't do an awful lot for the community, to others he was a national icon as such and a terrific actor in an industry which can influence many peoples lives.

if rooney was to die tomorrow pages would be written .
but the soldier would get barely a paragraph .
it will always be like this as we put our entertainers up on pedastals .
anyone who brings joy into our lives be it by films tv or sport will be missed by many . its the same with pay for instance . a surgeon has arguably the most important job in the world but a top sport star takes home as much in a week as he does in a year . it seems prescription drugs were not his only vice as pics in some papers of him snorting coke with naomi campbell and reports rolled up 20 dollar bill found by bed .

How many people have heard of gardiner though, althougth it is sad why would it be news to anyone other than his family, on the other hadn ledger was a world famous actor known by millions it would be quite strange if it wasn't big news that he died.
