I know it sucks, but i have to go with suicide. He had sleeping pills shewn about his room. Nobody takes sleeping pills to get high. At least not someone worth millions.

Learning of Heath Ledger's untimely and tragic death was quite a shock. For anyone to meet their demise at such a young age compounds the tragedy even more.
Mr. Ledger was still honing his craft and may have gone on to produce bodies of work that might have set him apart from his peers. I first saw him in 'A Knight's Tale', which was a very enjoyable medieval romp. His next choice of film was the derisible 'The Sin Eater', a film that is best forgotten. I do not believe he was a 'genius', certainly not in the same sense as that of a Brando or Olivier or Gielgud or Richardson, but who knows, had he not (probably) taken his own life through deep depression, he may have delivered certain parts touching on such a high accolade. His level may rest now with that of Dean or Rivers?
My thoughts go out to his family and friends...

they are normal crappy people like the rest of us, they fart and sleep and lie and steal and use drugs...what makes his life worth any more than a 14 year old who died of a drug overdose..
and you amercians wonder why your country is going to crap, it's cause you worship these people....who are nothing but actors - liars same thing, pretenders, whats so great about that ?
The sleeping tablets that actor Heath Ledger was reportedly taking in the months leading up to his death might have combined with his reported pneumonia to fatal effect.
