HEATH LEDGER (1979 - 2008)

According to CNN, Oscar nominated actor Heath Ledger was found dead in his Lower Manhattan apartment. The "Brokeback Mountain" star was found by a housekeeper who had gone to wake him for an appointment with a masseuse in the Soho apartment, according to New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne. "Pills were found in the vicinity of the bed," Browne said, "This is being looked at as a possible overdose, but that is not confirmed yet." The medical examiner's office planned an autopsy on Wednesday, spokeswoman Ellen Borakove said. He was declared dead at about 3:30 p.m.

A terrible piece of news to start the day and we were looking forward to Ledger's performance in this summer blockbuster "The Dark Knight". Fate is getting more unpredictable these days. All thoughts are with Ledger's family.
