NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said Ledger had an appointment for a massage at the Manhattan apartment believed to be his home. The housekeeper who went to let Ledger know the masseuse was there found him dead at 3:26 p.m. ET.The Australian-born actor has a two-year-old daughter with former fiancee Michelle Williams. Ledger was set to play the Joker in the upcoming Batman film "The Dark Knight." He received an Academy Award nomination for his work in "Brokeback Mountain."I am so very, very, very sad....
I would really like to think that is is not drug related... But it is looking more like that... What a shame...
This is a shocker! I went to MSNBC and they just said that he was found in his Soho apartment by his cleaning person at 3:35pm today and that this was reported by TMZ.com. On TMZ.com they said that MSNBC is reporting that he was surrounded by pills, but I didn't see anything about that on MSNBC. Regardless, he was found this afternoon.
