According to the medical examiner, Hoffman’s death was an accidental overdose and not a suicide. Contributing to his fatal “acute drug intoxication” were the drugs; heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines such as Valium or Klonopin and amphetamines such as Adderall.

Last month when Hoffman failed to show up for a play date with his children, his body was discovered in his West Village apartment. Hoffman had relapsed last spring and spent some time in a treatment facility after he’d been sober for 23 years.
