Heath Ledger Found Dead In Manhattan Apartment


Ladies and gentlemen, extremely sad news. The actor Heath Ledger was discovered in his apartment in Manhattan, New York, by his housekeeper today, dead. The causes of death are as of yet unknown, but hopefully, there will be more details coming soon. From WNBC News:

“A New York Police Department spokesman says the actor Heath Ledger has been found dead at a downtown Manhattan residence.

Ledger starred in “Brokeback Mountain” and “The Brothers Grimm.”Ledger was found by his housekeeper in his Broome Street apartment with pills strewn all around him, according to police.

She entered his bedroom after she knocked and he didn’t respond, police said. When she found him unresponsive, she tried to revive him and then contacted emergency personnel.”

Heath Ledger split up with his wife Michelle Williams fairly recently. The couple have one child together, their daughter, Matilda. I hope it wasn’t a drug-related death. Lately, there have been many celebrity deaths related to drug overdoses, as always. In all seriousness, I hope people are taking the effects of narcotics more seriously, lately. This is indeed, a heartbreaking loss to many. Our prayers and thoughts are with Heath‘s family.
