Four being questioned in connection with Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death
NEW YORK – New York City police are questioning four suspects, who were arrested at a Manhattan apartment with hundreds of bags of heroin, to determine whether they sold drugs to actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.
The actor was found dead in his Greenwich Village apartment on Sunday with a syringe in his arm and dozens of bags of heroin nearby.
The medical examiner said his autopsy was inconclusive as to the cause and manner of death.
Police also found prescription drugs and a bag of white powder in Hoffman’s apartment, which is now being tested for cocaine.
Investigators say Hoffman withdrew $1,200 from an ATM the night he died.
A witness told authorities he saw Hoffman talking to two men wearing messenger bags as he withdrew the money.
The suspects were arrested on drug charges after police say they found 300 bags of heroin in their apartment.
