Totally Offtopic: Heath Ledger Found Dead

Offtopic I know, but the Saints news is definitely slow.

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Actor Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday of a possible drug overdose in a Lower Manhattan apartment, the New York Police Department said.

Heath Ledger was unresponsive when a housekeeper found him in a Manhattan apartment Tuesday.

"Pills were found in the vicinity of the bed," police spokesman Paul Browne told CNN.

"This is being looked at as a possible overdose, but that is not confirmed yet."

The pills appeared to be over-the-counter sleeping medication, said police spokeswoman Barbara Chen.

Ledger was unresponsive when he was found by a housekeeper who had gone to wake him for an appointment with a masseuse in the Soho apartment, Browne said.

Ledger was declared dead at about 3:30 p.m., Browne said.

Actor Heath Ledger dies at 28 - CNN.com

RIP, his version of the Joker in the upcoming Batman sequel looks unbelievable.

Yeah way off topic but this is just a great example how this story BLEW up and is EVERYWHERE. Story spreaded like wild fire.
Great actor, and going out a legend with his next movie due out this summer -BATMAN-. I think his version of the Joker is going to be bad ass!

RIP HEATH
