german Wikipedia says he died because of drug abuse.

From CNN:
NEW YORK (CNN) -- Actor Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday of a possible drug overdose in a Lower Manhattan apartment, the New York Police Department said.

Heath Ledger was found dead in his Manhattan apartment.

The Academy Award nominated actor was 28.

"Pills were found in the vicinity of the bed," police spokesman Paul Browne told CNN.

"This is being looked at as a possible overdose, but that is not confirmed yet."

Ledger was found by a housekeeper who had gone to wake him for an appointment with a masseuse in the Soho apartment, Browne said.

He was declared dead at about 3:30 p.m., Browne said.

In 2005, the actor played Ennis Del Mar in "Brokeback Mountain," about two cowboys who had a secret relationship.

The role earned him the Oscar nomination.

This news seems to have caught on fairly early. Over 10 people my "Friends" list on Facebook now mention Heath Ledger in their statuses.

I'm thinking drug overdose here.

He was suffering pneumonia which many have failed to mention. The pills in question were prescription sleeping pills in his name.

____________

Ledger's parents and sister appeared outside Ledger's mother's house in Applecross, Western Australia and read a short statement to the media.
“ "We, Heath's family, confirm the very tragic, untimely and accidental passing of our dearly loved son, brother and doting father of Matilda, who was found in a peaceful sleep in his New York apartment by his housekeeper at 3:30pm [New York Time]. We would like to thank our friends and everyone around the world for their kind wishes at this time. Heath has touched so many people on so many different levels during his short life, but few had the pleasure to truly know him. He was a down-to-earth, generous, kind-hearted, life-loving and unselfish individual who was an extreme inspiration to many. Please now respect our family's need to grieve and come to terms with our loss privately."[26]

Well I guess that's why the police weren't saying how he died and why they were leaving his death up to the autopsy.

yeah, his death is a bit strange. We have to wait for the results of the autopsy.
