Shocked! *Breaking News* UPDATED
Actor and father, Heath Ledger, was found dead at a downtown Manhattan apartment, police say. His death was possibly drug-related as pills were found all around him. Ledger was 28. The housekeeper found him unconscious at around 3:30 PM Eastern time and called authorities.
Heath Ledger has a 2-year-old daughter, Matilda Rose.
Updated- It's being reported by news sources that Heath's family is issuing statements saying he did not commit suicide. The pills found in his room were said to be sleeping pills. Also, I've learned that Heath had pneumonia at the time of his death.
Michelle Williams, former fiancee and mother of his daughter, is said to be "devastated" and on a plane to NY.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
