In tragic news, Heath Ledger was found dead in a New York City apartment earlier today.
The actor - who was nominated for an Academy Award in 2006 and just finished filming The Dark Knight, starring in the iconic role of The Joker - was found unconscious by a maid around 3:30 this afternoon. Pills were scattered around Ledger.
The medical examiner's office has removed the body from the scene and an autopsy will be conducted Wednesday. Our thoughts and prayers are with Heath's family.
