2. Heath Ledger

The Dark Knight actor was found unconscious in his SoHo apartment by his housekeeper, Teresa Solomon, and his masseuse, Diana Wolozin, on January 22, 2008. Wolozin first called Mary-Kate Olsen when she discovered Ledger’s body and then made a call to 9-1-1 after she discovered that the actor was not breathing. Wolozin administered CPR, which was unsuccessful. Ledger passed away from “acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamine.” His death was ruled an accident, which resulted from the abuse of prescribed medications.
