The actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his New York apartment on Sunday morning of an apparent drug overdose, according to a law enforcement official who requested anonymity because he was not certain the actor’s family had been informed of the death.

The official said Mr. Hoffman, 46, was found in his West Village apartment around 11:30 a.m. by a friend who had become concerned at not being able to reach Mr. Hoffman.

Investigators found a syringe in his arm and an envelope containing what is believed to be heroin, the official said.

“It’s pretty apparent that it was an overdose,” the official said. “The syringe was in his arm.”

Mr. Hoffman won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in the 2005 film “Capote,” in which he portrayed the writer Truman Capote.



He had undergone treatment for drug addiction in the past, and spoke in interviews about “falling off the wagon” last year after remaining clean for 23 years.

By around 2 p.m, more than a hundred people had gathered outside the address where the actor was found, in a brick apartment building on Bethune Street. The crowd was growing by the minute.

As people passed, they stopped, snapped photos, held hands and watched. They seemed to be waiting.

“He’s a local. He’s a fixture in this neighborhood,” said Christian McCulloch, 39, who said that he lives nearby. “You see him with his kids in the coffee shops, he is so sweet. It’s desperately sad.”

At a short distance from the crowd, two men who identified themselves as friends embraced, sobbing.

A woman answering the phone at Mr. Hoffman’s New York production company declined to comment. “I don’t have a comment at this time on that, thank you,” she said.

Philip Seymour Hoffman: A Great Career Tragically Cut Short

**UPDATE** February 3rd


50 Bags of heroin, 20 unused needles and 4 different prescription drugs were found in Philip Seymour Hoffman's apartment, according to the New York Daily News.

Prescription drugs found included.

1. Clonidine - used for high blood pressure

2. Vyvanse - treatment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

3. Methocarbamol - a muscle relaxant 

4. Hydroxyzine - used to relieve the itching caused by allergies and to control the nausea and vomiting caused by various conditions, including motion sickness.


Police say the heroin was a potent brand cut with fentanyl, a pain reliever. The bags were stamped "Ace of Spades" or "Ace of Hearts."

The body of Philip Seymour Hoffman, the Oscar-winning actor found dead Sunday, is removed Sunday from his Bethune St. home.

One addict told the Daily News that the heroin Hoffman was using is in high demand in New York City.

“From what I know, it’s really good,” the addict said. "That’s what the people want. I think they’re getting it for cheap, too.

Cops are now trying to find out where the actor purchased the drugs. They are looking at surveillance footage from around the area to see if he was part of a large purchase.

50 bags looks to me like a plant to cover up his getting X'd out, he was dealing and got X'd out by someone with his own product, or he died testing his product before he could move it.
