Heath Ledger DEAD Movie star HEATH LEDGER has been found dead in his New York apartment. The actor was declared dead by medics at his Broome Street, Soho apartment at 3.30pm on Tuesday (22Jan08), according to the New York Police Department.

Pills were found strewn around his apartment. As WENN goes to press, there are no more details of his death. The Australian Brokeback Mountain star, 28, was just about to start promoting the Batman Begins sequel The Dark Knight, in which he plays movie villain The Joker.
