Just three blocks from the home he and his girlfriend, costumer designer, Mimi O’Donnell shared, Philip Seymour Hoffman lie dead in nothing but his underwear and a hypodermic needle stuck in his arm after an apparent heroin overdose.
Philip Seymour Hoffman was found by his personal assistant, who promptly called police to the Greenwich apartment, which was littered with heroin. The veteran actor has apparently been shooting up in the apartment’s bathroom.
The New York post reported that attendees of the Sundance Music Festival, taking place last month in Park City, Utah, described the actor as looking “slightly disheveled and pasty.” Despite realizing the severity of his 2012 relapse in which he snorted heroin for a week and was abusing prescription meds, and putting himself in rehab for 10 days in 2013, this battle proved to be too big a fight for him.
