According to this IMDb staff report.  And numerous other news sources.

He was my age.  They say pills were found near the body…  I can’t imagine that it was suicide.  I hate to think about tragic accidents like this.  Totally avoidable.

Heath Ledger was famous (how odd to use was instead of is).  And while I find his sudden death strangely shocking, I’m reminded of others who have recently lost loved ones.
I have a friend who lost a sister last week named Alishia.   Alishia also worked in entertainment (and education).  She was killed because a strange virus attacked her heart, weakening it and causing numerous heart attacks.

Heath’s death is mourned by at least two countries and film-goers world-wide.   Alishia’s death is mourned by many friends and family members in a Canadian province (and several American states).  But both were equally tragic and unnecessary.  Both lives worth celebrating… and remembering.
