Philip Seymour Hoffman's Autopsy Inconclusive

Last Sunday, Hollywood lost one of its most compelling actors: Philip Seymour Hoffman. The academy-award winning and nominated talent was found dead in his New York City apartment the morning of Februrary 2nd with a syringe in his arm and 70 baggies of what appeared to be heroin.

However, the released preliminary results of the autopsy were "inconclusive," meaning they did not immediately point to overdose, as seemed most obvious. The medical examiner office will continue to test before an official cause of death will be released.

Hoffman had publicly admitted to having struggles with heroin and drug addiction. After staying sober for nearly 20 years, he had checked into a rehabilitation center last year shortly folowing a relapse.
