TMZ is reporting Heath Ledger was found dead in a New York apartment. When paramedics arrived he was in full cardiac arrest. Pills were found strewn about his body. An early report that the apartment was one owned by actress Mary Kate Olsen is supposedly incorrect.
CNN coverage of the event.
From the TimesCall.com story:
Police said Ledger was naked in his bed with an unknown number of sleeping pills near the body.
So sad. It's not known at this time if it was a suicide or accidental overdose.
