Heath Ledger's Apartment Remains Vacant

Heath Ledger's New York City apartment has been completely sealed off by its owner - one month after he pulled it off the real estate market.

The Brokeback Mountain star died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in the SoHo loft last January (22Jan08), aged 28.

The building's owner, millionaire philanthropist Donald Burns, took the apartment off the market in December (08), after failing to attract a tenant with rent listed at $26,000 (£18,905) per month.

According to the New York Post all furniture, including the bed where Ledger's body was found, has been removed from the three-bedroom home.

A source tells the newspaper, "It's completely empty. Everything's been taken out. Nobody is allowed up there."

Heath Ledger was awarded with a posthumous Oscar nomination yesterday for his performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight that marked the one year anniversary of his death.
