New Details On Heath Ledger's Shocking Death!

| Filed under: Heath Ledger

At 3:31 p.m., a masseuse arrived at Apartment 5A in the building for an appointment with Mr. Ledger, police said.

The masseuse was let in to the home 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 and found Mr. Ledger unconscious.

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 the body.

    Yes this is sad… but I'm pretty sure everyone in Hollywood is on drugs so I'm not that shocked.

    RIP

    Peace.

    when my friend told me over IM I was like, lol stop being so sick ?! Then I realised he wasn't kidding. I'm actually overwhelmed with sadness about this and I find comfort in the fact that other ppl feel the same. Such a fantastic actor with a zest for life so it seemed. My thoughts are with Jen and their daughter Matilda. So completely shocking, especially so early in the new year.

    611

    I can't believe it! Heath is such a legend! I know it's gonna sound stupid now, but I've liked him ever since 10 Things I Hate About You. I was really looking forward to seeing him as The Joker and I was hoping he'd get bigger and better. This is so sad!
    I just hope everyone knows how many fans Heath actually has…

  12. TJ says – reply to this


    612

    Yeah, Perez, you should feel pretty low calling him Fug of the year.
    YOU DON'T KNOW CRAP ABOUT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE GOING THROUGH!!!
    He was a great actor. A great father. And he will be missed. RIP HEATH LEDGER!!!

    HEY IT SUCKS!…BUT YOU HAD TO SEE THIS COMING CUZ OF THE SPLIT UP WITH THE WIFE AND THE ROLE HE PLAYED IN BAREBACK….MEANT "BROKEBACK MOUNTIAN"

  14. Kathy says – reply to this


    614

    What's up with him being found in MaryKate Olsen's apartment? What's her role in all this? Geez — its really bad for your little girl clothing line when they pull a dead guy out of your apartment. You know business could suffer. Maybe going to college wasn't such a bad idea after all.

  15. Sheesh People says – reply to this


    615

    Come on already. The news is saying it was over the counter sleeping medication, it's not like he was ODing on crack. Sounds to me like it was, sadly, intentional.

    628

    What is sad is that he was too stupid to think about anyone else but himself when he decided to get high. Too bad he didn't think about his daughter. What an idiot. I don't get these people - all the money they can handle, great careers, etc. I hope the high was worth it!

    636

    What a horrendous shattering heartbreak! Heath was such a wildly talented young man.

    My heart goes out to Michelle and his daughter Matilda - they must just be reeling. such a disaster… I am so, so sad for them all.

  37. mnicole says – reply to this


    637

    seriously….I just took a glance at his biography realizing how many movies he has been in. He was quite a talent. Such a shame that he is no longer with us. Especially for his family, his baby girl, I just can't imagine being that depressed. He must have been really fucked up.

    May he rest in peace.

    I am just blown away by this.

    Re: SICK N TIRED OF SEEING PEOPLE WITH TALENT DYING FROM DRUGS – DIE FIRST INSTEAD OF THESE YOUNG TALENTED ACTORS WHO OBVIOUSLY ARE HELPLESS AND DESPERATE
    AND MONEY OBVIOUSLY DOESN'T MAKE ANYONE HAPPY , SO YES I WISH THERE ARE LESS HEARTLESS DOUCHE BAGS LIKE YOURSELF AND MAYBE THIS LIFE IS WORTH LIVING FOR BUT EVERYDAY I ENCOUNTER USELESS HUMAN BEING LIKE YOURSELF AND SOMETIMES IT IS REALLY TIRING , BUT I WILL KEEP LIVING BECAUSE IN A WAY IT IS SUCH A GREAT JOY TO DEGRADE AND MAKE DOUCHE BAGS LIKE YOURSELF FEEL LIKE SHIT AND BY THE WAY IF YOU ARE SO SICK OF LIVING AND HEARING ABOUT SOMEONE COMMIT SUICIDE THEN MAYBE YOU SHOULD DO DOUCHE BAG !!!!!!!!

    :( im in shock i feel so sad :(

  41. Sarah says – reply to this


    641

    Maybe he took pills/drugs because HE HAD SUCH LOW SELF-ESTEEM FROM ALL THE HORRIBLE AND NASTY THINGS YOU SAY ABOUT HIS LOOKS!
    I imagine that would make someone pretty depressed if millions of people were reading mean remarks about a their looks!!!

  42. Kim says – reply to this


    642

    If he took his own life he is selfiash because his own daughter will not know who he was

    OMG! so, so sad. my deepest condolences to his family. i still have chills over this shocking news. his little matilda will miss him so much. r.i.p.

  44. bridget scott says – reply to this


    644

    I feel so sad by this. I am so shocked. He was shooting a new movie as well. My thoughts go out to his family.

  45. Jeremy Brannon says – reply to this


    645

    Give yourself a big pat on the back, Perez. One down. Have you ever thought that some of the mean things you've said about Heath may have contributed to his suicide, if it was a suicide? Sure, other bloggers and tabloids mangled him too, but you took it farther and just think of all the people that accessed your blog on a daily basis, while Heath was alive and added additional salt to his wounds. You are an evil person.

    R.I.P. Heath… way too young to die. :-(

    P.S. Keep trashing the others too. It's people like you that enable young people in the entertainment industry to lead self-destructive lives.

  46. Shay says – reply to this


    646

    I can't beleive it. :'( Heath….. i'm so close to tears right now….. I can't beleive it. It seems so impossible… he was so young and he was an amazing actor…. I read a lot of the other comments and I understand if you feel pity for the family and such, but when did anyone say that they pity him. The poor guy either A) was killed B) Overdosed on drugs or C) Was so in distress that he commited suiscide. I think it's truly awful and I hope Heath knows how much everyone down here will miss him. Only a month ago I was watching '10 Things I hate about you' and I NEVER expected him to be gone within the month. If the paparazzi are going to follow stars around all the time…. WHY CAN'T THEY BE THERE IN TIME TO STOP THEM!!?? :'(

    In that video above.. he keeps scratching his skin the entire time!! isnt that what heroine addicts or crack addicts do? I know its definitely a side effect of one of those harsh drugs..just can't remember which one..

    652

    Just saw him a few weeks ago… He was dressed really sloppy trying to text message.. he was with a group of guys that looked like thugs.. he looked really skinny and kind of depressed… so sad this was the day before the Lohan romp I think

  57. candice says – reply to this


    657

    I have a hard time believing he killed himself. "He was found naked and unconscious on a bed, with pills scattered around his body," Why were the pills "SCATTERED" around his body, unless trying to make it LOOK like a suicide? Some of you have made REAL NASTY comments about him and are ASSUMING he commited suicide - why not wait until the autopsy and investigation are finished before spewing out your venomous opinioins.

    660

    Shocking. Sad. All of it. I hope you and other news organizations will not exploit this. A twenty something Father dying is sad- it doesn't matter if he was in the public eye or not. Be respectful to the people who have to deal and cope with this tragedy- not us, the public, but his friends and family. So so sad.

  61. Mel says – reply to this

    668

    I'm in complete shock. I really wish people would stop jumping to conclusions - no one knows what caused his death yet, who are we to judge anyways! I thought he was a great actor, loved him in the Patriot. This really upsets me :-(

  84. Absolute tragedy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! says – reply to this


    684

    Whether accidental or intentional, Heath's passing is an absolute tragedy on so many levels. So young, so talented, a good father, so much promise, and so many good years ahead of him…god damn this is fucking sad.

    Loved him in many things, especially A Knight's Tale. Will be watching this tonight and probably crying as I do so. Who saw this coming? Ive had dreams about reading CNN's headline "Britney Spears Found Dead at 26" but Heath Ledger!! NO NO NO!!!!!! God what a tragedy!!

    All my best to little Mathilda, Michelle (no logner together but I can only imagine how important Heath is to her), and Heath's family. Rest in peace mate, see you on the flip side~

    690

    Do not stand at my grave and weep;
    I am not there. I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning's hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there. I did not die.

    697

    Can we Please leave Michelle and Matilda alone. Just for a week or for however long it takes to mourn the death of your partner and father. This is a tragic loss and while I love my gossip websites when a death is involved it's always good to back off. Sometimes we don't need to know everything or see the body being pulled away. All these things can be seen at a later time. I hope the Common people who live in the Brooklyn Neighborhood where Michelle and Matilda live will keep the paparazzi away and protect them. I understand everyone has a job to do and report but it's my understanding that the "family" doesn't know yet and just some of them found out a couple of hours ago in Australia as it's just morning right now. This is so sad. RIP

    Aww..I was in complete shock when I read the title, I thought it was a joke at first :| Heath was only 28!! I loved him in Brokeback, him & jake were amazing actors and the movie won my heart … a part of me is mad at him for killing himself..i hope it wasnt a planned suicide kus that'd be so selfish of him just leaving everyone behind… his fans..ex-wife…family…including his little girl… R.I.P. Heath Ledger !! I'm so glad I have the DVD of brokeback…i shall watch it again soontimes, you'll be greatly missed.
