Actor Heath Ledger Found Dead In His NYC Apartment
Actor Heath Ledger, best known for his Oscar nominated performance in the 2005 film "Brokeback Mountain", was found dead in his downtown NYC apartment in the SoHo section of Manhattan on Broome Street yesterday afternoon at about 2:45pm. Ledger's naked body was found face down in his apartment by a masseuse.
Speculation suggests that the prescription drugs Xanax, Valium and Ambien were all found at the scene, prescribed in the late actor's name. It has also been speculated that a rolled up 20 dollar bill was also found at the late actor's bedside, but no illegal drugs were found in the residence.
Today's preliminary autopsy report on the late actor was found to be inconclusive.
