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.

    show some respect. just because you may not have liked him doesnt mean he wasnt a good actor, and the deceased deserve respect!

    if this drug overdose was on purpose its ashame, that he would do that to his 2 year old daughter. so many hollywood actors and actresses commit suicide and leave children behind that are often young ex; Kurt Cobain. its ridiculous, their children should be the reason they live. now matilda will never know her daddy.

    I'm here in NY, and I have an unconfirmed report that he was in an Olsen twin's apartment. Perez, I'd love for you to confirm the rumor!

    And on a more serious note, RIP Heath. It's never good when someone so young dies, no matter what you may think of the person.

    over the decades there have been sum seriously good actors,most have died of old age ,or are on their way out shame really,in todays world their seems to be a serious lack of damm good and unusual special actors ones who are realy good at what they do ,with that special something you cant quite put your finger on, and seriously hot to boot ,heath had it all and so much talent now gone to waste ,what are we to do now ?. Those type of actors come along very rarely ,what a waste if it was suicide its a damm shame it just goes to show you can have the whole american dream and be as miserable as sin.But if its just a sad case of a drugs overdose damm shame on you heath ,you've seen the stories look at river phoenix etc ,you had a little girl to think of ,shame on you ,how will she feel knowing her father had hit rock bottem but coudnt work at LIVING at life ,at least for her ,hope that your at peace now and your demons laid to rest ,we may not have known you personally ,but we'll miss you and all the great films you coud have made if you had lived love kea go in peacexxxxxxxxxxx

    727

    hmm.. Accidental overdose or suicide? That is the question.

    From what friends have told me he was kind, caring and not very selfish..
    But people are not always as they seem..
    Maybe he did off him self for some unknown selfish reason.. could have been some unselfish reason if he did purposely off him self that is… or maybe he just wanted to sleep and popped one to many, spilled the bottle and finally got some rest.. an everlasting sleep that he can never come out of.. just looking like suicide.. but in this world… WHO THE FUCK KNOWS?

    R.I.P

    742

    This is such a shock. Whatever the cause i think its extremely insensitive to suggest that suicide is selfish. Of course it is tragic for those left behind but someone who takes their own life because of personal demons deserves our deepest sympathy, not scorn or swearwords. Enough of this faux coolness or inarticulate criticisms. This is genuinely sad.

    I am very saddened to hear of his passing. They are saying he had pneumonia, and that while he had had substance problems before, he had been clean a year. Heath Ledger was a very talented actor, and his death is a significant loss to Hollywood. My condolences to Michelle, Matilda, his parents and everyone else close to him.

    He was in his twenties. He had already made more money than 6 average working people will make in their lives. If he hated his life, he could have junked everything and started over. Life could have been a breeze. And he threw it away. Boo hoo hoo.

    So very sad. He was young, brimming with talent and had the advantage of every opportunity in the world. Let this be a sad and tragic lesson, that life is fragile enough as it is; why add the risk of drugs? Perez, please allow his family and friends to mourn their loss and celebrate his life, without the glare of camera flashes. They deserve your respect and space.

  56. Rivaderci says – reply to this


    756

    Its so sad, your whole website is sad. Tonight I came to look at it after a friend told me you will have up to date info about how Heath passed. Its no wonder these people are tormented, I would never want to be a celeb and honestly I dont think they do either. Most just want to express themselves and to do what they are good at. They don't want the fame. They live in such sheltered paranoid states. Heath obviously learned this, so did Brad Renfro and hundreds of others in the past. Its just sad, they just want to do what comes natural they don't realize they are selling themselves to satin until after the deal is sealed. They truly want an escape, they want anonymity and once its gone they search for it. I go to work everyday and am also a type of artist yet I am always able to remain anonymous. There aren't people standing outside my door. Its so so sad. So many of these brilliant artists just want to be an artist, they don't want to be in the limelight. Artists come in so many forms, yet a painter, a writer, and a sculptor can create their art and still remain out of the spotlight. So sad, so sad. You just want to help them get away from stalkers like you.

    this is such a complete tragedy.. i find it extremely hard to believe that he did this intentionally.. (however who's to know what he was dealing with). my hopes are that it was an accident.. for Matilda's sake at least.
    he was an amazing icon, astounding actor and incredible person. he will be truly missed

    R.I.P Heath Ledger. EVERYONE INSTEAD OF TALKING ABOUT HOW YOU KNEW HIM, OR WHY HE DID IT, OR TALKING ABOUT HOW YOU THINK HE HAD HIS STUFF TOGETHER…IT WAS PROBALY AN ACCIDENT…AND WE NEED TO PRAY FOR HIS FAMILY, AND HIS FRIENDS WHO ARE HURT OVER THIS! HEATH LEDGER WAS A GREAT MAN, AND I BELIEVE HE WAS AN AMAZING ACTOR AND A GREAT PERSON…THOUGH I NEVER MET HIM…HE WAS A JOY TO WATCH ON TELEVISION.

  67. Tracy says – reply to this


    767

    People, stop ragging on him until the truth is known. I heard that he had pnemonia… so yes, maybe there were sleeping pills there to help him sleep too because he was so sick, but YOU CAN die from pnemonia. No matter the cause, it is a sad tragedy and no one should be ragging on him, may he rest in peace, and peace be with his family during this time.

    R.I.P. Heath Ledger
    When I heard about this I felt so sad. There are so many untalented celebraties out there that it was refreshing to see a true talent. My heart goes out to his daughter and Michelle Williams. I hope that other celebrities will see this and realize how important it is to not rely on medicaitons to solve all their problems.

  79. Maybe it waas a heart condition says – reply to this


    779

    Im thinking maybe he had an undetected heart condtion.. stress and too many sleeping pills might have caused his heart tolock up.. Maybe he had had blood pressure.. who knows…
    God bless Heath and his family.

    Heath was a great man, and loved.

    Hollywood to blame? #1, he lived in NYC not LA, he's from AUS and never lived in HO-llywood. We may never know why, but I think he took too many OTC drugs to try to get sleep.

    im from aus and heard this going to work i was like wtf, he was amazing, how ironic he played a drug addict in the movie Candy.

    Not a masseuse - a masseur. The media has assumed the massage therapist had tits. He didn't. He's a male escort. The official statements used gender-neutral language, hoping not stir things up.

    787

    CLARIFICATION:

    Not a masseuse - a masseur. He (the massage therapist) was a male escort. Yes, really. The official statements used gender-neutral language, hoping not stir things up. The media then assumed the massage therapist was female.

    Re: DumbAssCelebrities

    WHY DO YOU THINK THAT JUST BECAUSE A PERSON IS RICH OR FAMOUS, THAT THEIR RIGHTS AND SENSIBILITIES AS A HUMAN ARE REVOKED? SO IF A MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY WAS RICH YOUD THINK OF THEM DIFFERENTLY TOO? IT'S SICKENING THAT EMPATHY AND SYMPATHY TOWARDS A PERSON DISSIPATES AS SOON AS THEY BECOME RICH! HE IS A HUMAN BEING, EXPOSED TO THE SAME STRESSES AND ILLNESSES AS EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD, BUT POSSIBLY MORESO DUE TO ENVIRONMENT!

    AND — how easy is it to just unknowingly combine the wrong two prescription/non-prescription drugs together by accident, not even in shockingly reckless amounts, and wind up with a tragedy? daniel smith died b/c of toxic drug INTERACTION, not overdose. it is a stunning and sad loss. Maybe we will all learn to ask when someone looks troubled how they are feeling and if we can do anything to help them, and take care of ourselves and our minds and bodies without relying on potentially dangerous ammount of drugs and booze–legal and/or otherwise.

    jesus .. over here in europe we got the news before we went to bad and i so hoped, that it was either a dream or just a joke and that he would still be alive!
    but i'm so sad, in complete shock, crying all morning and whatever you name it .. i can't even look at pics of him :(
    it's so sad, that he died at the age of 28 (!!!!), alone in his bed .. it's so tragic!
