NEW YORK - Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday in a Manhattan apartment in what police sources are calling an apparent suicide or accidental overdose. He was 28.

Saw this before I went out the door. :( I've never really seen him in anything, but it's sad nonetheless.

Wasn't a fan of his or anything, but it was still a shock to see it.

RIP

Wouldn't have happened if he wasn't taking drugs in the first place. I have no sympathy for drug-addicts who overdose.

Never said he was or was sposed to be. I just think its misguided to feel sorry for him when he did it to himself. You want to feel sorry for someone, feel sorry for the kid who's now gonna have to grow up without a father.

If you read some of the news posts about it, he was using sleeping pills to get sleep during his performance as The Joker. It's not like he was snorting meth or using a painkiller an hour.

Have they confirmed a cause of death yet?

EDIT: Tiara posted just before me. But that doesn't confirm anything... though it doesn't look particularly good, either. Still... at least give the man the benefit of the doubt until hard evidence pops up.

No, the autospy is scheduled, not completed. :P

No, they didn't. They don't even know if it was drugs yet, so I think it's a little too soon to be judging him for something that he might not have done in the first place. Some reports I read also said he was suffering from pneumonia. Maybe it had something to do with that? We just don't know.

Let's wait for the autopsy before throwing out statements like that.

The same article mentions that he 'felt good about dying' after splitting with the mother of his child. I would quote it but I closed the window.

I doubt you've been in a relationship, and if you have, perhaps you would understand when someone that you love and care about leaves you, it is hard to adjust.

Such statements are expected. It's human.

To say that someone deserved death, is a little perverted.

He's not saying it was deserved.

Poor Heath :( RIP

And if he did kill himself, is it such a great evil? Each to his own.

The Dark Knight was AMAZING.

The Joker was the best I've ever seen. : D
