Such a waste of a great talent and to go so young as well it's shocking.
R.I.P. Heath Leder (4/4/1979 - 22/1/2008) you wil be sorely missed.
To all of you out there like Phony Tony just stop and think about the consequences of your disrespectful comments. People make err is human. We should be united in this time of grief, not speaking ill of the dead. How would you feel if you had to find out about the death of a loved one via the media? Geez have some respect!
I am in no way condoning drug abuse (if that is confirmed to be the cause of death) but keep your insensitive comments to yourselves. And for all you bastards out there who can't take a hint...go play in traffic

May the angels keep you safe on your journey to the heavens above. May we never forget the talent and the love that Heath brought to us all whether personally or through his many films. Do not remember him as he was found but remember him on his many beautiful joys and triumphs he had throughout his short life. May the heavens smile upon his daughter and keep her safe and may she always remember her daddy as he was and the legacy he left behind for her to continue on in his name.

Ambien is called Stilnox in Australia. This is a very controversial sleeping and drug. If Heath said he took a couple and only slept an hour, he may have taken extra in combination with other medications if he had pneumonia. I have the vibe he has died from a combination of accident and being ill. I would be very interested in the AMBIEN factor. Whatever idiots are saying it was BROKEBACK that put a curse on them, disturbs me greatly. That was one of the finest characterisations I have ever seen on film. It was a ROLE. There are such idiots everywhere. Rest in peace the finest actor of his generation.
