Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his New York apartment on Super Bowl Sunday, presumably from a drug overdose. Today’s autopsy results confirm this. Via The Wrap:

Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman died from acute mixed drug intoxication, the New York medical examiner said Friday.

Heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines and amphetamine were found in the 46-year old’s system and his death was ruled an accident.

Hoffman, a star whose work in films such as “The Master” and “Capote” was greatly acclaimed, was found dead in his West Village apartment on February 2. A needle was reportedly found in his arm and 70 glassine baggies of heroin were also in his home. An initial autopsy was inconclusive.

I still can’t shake the depressing feeling of a man alone in an apartment doing drugs by himself. That gnawing voice in his head telling him that he shouldn’t be doing such a thing but the addiction overtaking him.
