We just heard the news and are incredibly saddened by the loss of this amazing actor. According to CNN, Heath Ledger was found dead in a Manhattan apartment after a housekeeper apparently let in a masseuse for a scheduled appointment. No other additional details are available.

UPDATE: According to The New York Times, “At 3:31 p.m., a masseuse arrived at Apartment 5A in the building for an appointment with Mr. Ledger, the police said. The masseuse was let in to the home by a housekeeper, who then knocked on the door of Mr. Ledger’s bedroom. When no one answered, the housekeeper and the masseuse opened the bedroom and found Mr. Ledger unconscious. They shook him, but he did not respond. They immediately called the authorities. The police said they did not suspect foul play. Officials said pills fear found near the body.”
