Heath Ledger, 28

The lead actor in such films as A Knight's Tale, The Patriot, and Brokeback Mountain, was found dead at his SoHo apartment yesterday afternoon.  The body was discovered by the housekeeper face down and naked.  There was no suicide note but two bottles of sleeping pills were found in the apartment.  He had an appointment for a massage that afternoon.  The family rejects the idea of a suicide.

One of his latest movies out is "I'm Not There," in which he "played one of the many incarnations of Bob Dylan."  Cate Blanchett was nominated for best supporting actress for her performance in that movie.  Ledger will be seen next in Batman playing The Joker.

Here's a slightly slanted piece on his supposedly wanting to destroy his own career.

A slightly more positive look at his life.
