Famous people who died too soon (PHOTOS) - Heath Ledger date of, cause of death DEA investigation. 'Dark Knight' oscar winner Heath Ledger was found dead in January 2008. Ledger, 28, was found dead in his bed by his housekeeper at about 2:45 p.m.

In the months before his death, Ledger often complained that he couldn't sleep. He'd get about 1-2 hours sleep a day. He told friends that he couldn't stop thinking and so he was prescribed drugs to help him get rest. However, he complained the pills were not working.

Ledger's autopsy showed that his death was an accident. He abused his prescription medications that were for his insomnia, pain, anxiety, depression, and common cold symptoms.

On 11 December 2008, it was announced that Ledger had been nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture for his performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight; he subsequently won the award at the 66th Golden Globe Awards ceremony telecast on NBC on 11 January 2009 with Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan accepting on his behalf.

Film critics, co-stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and Michael Caine and many of Ledger's colleagues in the film community joined Bale in calling for and predicting a nomination for the 2008 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in recognition of Ledger's achievement in The Dark Knight. Ledger's subsequent nomination was announced on 22 January 2009, the anniversary of his death; Ledger went on to win the award, becoming the second person to win a posthumous Academy Award for acting, after fellow Australian actor Peter Finch, who won for 1976's Network.

The award was accepted by Ledger's family.

TMZ reports that sources connected with the Heath Ledger investigation say the Drug Enforcement Administration set a new low for starf**king. People who have talked to TMZ off the record are now willing to go on record -- still anonymously -- about one of the most bizarre DEA power grabs ever.

How's this for starters ... no one we've spoken with connected with the case can point to a single DEA case where a massive investigation was launched over an accidental death in which no criminality was even hinted at.  Go here for more photos.
