The New York medical examiner’s report concluded that the Academy Award winning actor had an “acute mixed drug intoxication including heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines and amphetamine,” the dosage combination that killed the actor.

Hoffman, 46 was found dead in his Manhattan apartment on February 2nd with a needle hanging from his left arm, proving the actor was injecting himself with the poison.

After the actor’s death, it was also released that Hoffman stated in his will signed in 2004, that most of his finances and personal property go to Mimi O’Donnell, the mother of his three children.

Hoffman also requested he wanted his children to grow up in either, New York, Chicago or San Francisco; three cities with diverse cultures and offering a worldly lifestyle.

“The purpose of this request is so that my son will be exposed to the culture, arts and architecture that such cities offer,” Hoffman’s will read.

Hoffman, who was born in the Rochester suburbs, Fairport section of New York State, made his way to New York City, attended the Tisch School of Arts in Manhattan and successfully worked his way into theater, TV and film, eventually winning himself numerous prestigious acting awards.

It is expected that the 86th annual of the Academy Awards respectfully place Philip Seymour Hoffman in their “In Memoriam” segment of their award presentation show, scheduled this Sunday evening, March 2nd on ABC television.
