The death of the Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman sent shockwaves all over the world. The apparent drug overdose on heroin, branded as "Ace of Spade" which has not been seen in more than six years on the street. According to reports, Hoffman was found in his Manhattan apartment dead, with a syringe still intact in his arms. Friends of the actor discovered the grisly death when the latter failed to pick up his three children from school.
Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman attends the premiere of the film A Most Wanted Man at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, January 19, 2014.
The "Hunger Games" actor is said to have only seven days left for shooting the third installment of the best fantasy action series. Lionsgate management announced their grief over the actor's death but reassured fans that the movie shall not be delayed.
The cops are now handling the case of Hoffman-in fact, the police has already charged Jazz musician Robert Vineberg. According to reports, the latter is accused of having dealt the drugs to Hoffman, which led to the death of the actor. Vineberg says that Hoffman was a "hardcore addict" and that relapsing from his being clean for 20 years might have caused the lethal blow to the Oscar-winning actor.
Meanwhile, police found diaries of the actor that revealed the drug deals he made. The actor also revealed in his diaries his attention for a mystery woman that might have potentially caused the great rift between him and his longtime partner Mimi O'Donnell. Mimi asked Hoffman to leave their common apartment three weeks prior to Hoffman's death because she didn't want his drug influence near their three children.
Police say, however, that the diaries are largely incoherent. Some say that the ramblings were made during Hoffman's 10 day stint in rehab while others believe that the writings were done when the "Capote" actor was high on heroin. Furthermore, the actor writes in his journals how he is embarrassed of relapsing into the deadly behavior after being clean for two decades.
Vineberg has since expressed his innocence over the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman. According to the jazz musician, "I could've saved him... If I knew he was in town, I would've said, "Hey, let's make an AA meeting." If I was with him, it wouldn't have happened. Not under my guard."
