Holding nothing back…

Rest in Peace…

Posted on: January 24, 2008

I guess what they say is true:  Only the good die young.

Heath Ledger was found dead in his apartment this past Tuesday.  Apparently, his housekeeper had let herself in and begun cleaning after hearing Ledger snoring from his bedroom.  I guess his still being in bed when she got there wasn’t abnormal.  I can only imagine her horror at finding out later that Ledger had been laying there dying while she went about her routine in the next room. 

While there were prescription drugs present in the apartment and a rolled-up $20 bill, there were no illegal drugs found and tests showed no drug residue on the bill.

I guess we’ll know more in a few weeks when the toxicology reports come back to the Medical Examiner. 

There are conflicting reports about what Ledger’s mental health was like during his last weeks.  His family, of course, says that this has to be an accidental death, that Ledger would never have committed suicide.  Other reports are that Michelle Williams, Ledger’s ex-girlfriend and mother to his daughter, was worried about Ledger.

And of course, the scavengers were getting their bit *immediately* after his death.  Papparazzi were so prevelant at his SoHo apartment by the time his body was removed that police had put up barricades to keep them back.  Now, the Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas, classified as a hate group and monitored by the Anti-Defamation League, is planning to picket memorial services for Ledger in the U.S.  This is the same group that has been picketing the funerals of soldiers that died in Iraq folks!  I won’t give those idiots any more mention than that. 

Rest in peace, Heath Ledger.  You were a talented actor, a gentle soul, and will be greatly missed.
