    The online sources are only now catching up:

    Actor Heath Ledger dies at 28

    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 found dead in a Manhattan apartment.

    The Academy Award nominated actor was 28.

    "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.

    The apartment is owned by the actress Mary-Kate Olsen, The New York Times reported.

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

    In 2005, the actor played Ennis Del Mar in "Brokeback Mountain," about two cowboys who had a secret relationship.

    The role earned him the Oscar nomination.

    Ledger was born in Perth, Australia. He has a young daughter with actress Michelle Williams, his co-star in "Brokeback Mountain."

    "He was just so respected in the industry," said Kim Serafin, senior editor of In Touch Weekly.

    "It's just horribly tragic. He was just a fine actor and a good person, so this is horribly sad and very unexpected."

    Maybe he was subletting it from Mary-Kate Olsen.

    I'm watching a local NY station.

    The body is STILL there. This all broke so fast the media swarmed there before they could get the body out!

    My God, what awful news. It's just one tragedy after another.

    Did he have a history of problems? It seems to me the only time I've seen Heath Ledger (besides in his films) is with Michelle Williams. They always looked like such a nice couple, and perfectly happy.

    They did seem so happy together, and it was a surprise when they broke up. Maybe if he did have a drug problem, that contributed to the break-up. Gosh, this is just so sad. Hard to believe he's no longer. Death is so final. What an awful, tragic shame.

    Mind you, domestic abuse is not the first thought most people are having seeing this. Cosmetic surgery is.
