Rest in Peace Heath Ledger

You've probably heard the news by now, but word everywhere is that Heath Ledger was found dead today in his NYC apartment. His body was found by his housekeeper, trying to awaken him for his massage appointment. Investigators found sleeping pills near his body and are looking into the possibility that he overdosed. This is truly sad, as Ledger was really just starting to come into his own as an actor. And with the pending release of The Dark Knight he was set to completely break out. Seriously, Ledger was at the prime of his acting career. Between Brokeback Mountain, I'm Not There and of course The Dark Knight, Ledger was making quite a name for himself. Rumor had it that he was going to great lengths to get into character to play the Joker. Hopefully his devotion to the cause didn't get the best of him. Probably the most jarring fact is that he was only 28 years old. Omnicomic sends its condolences to Ledger's family. This is truly a sad day.
