Philip Seymour Hoffman Has Been Found Dead RIP

Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has been found dead in his New York apartment on Sunday 2nd February 2014. He was 46 years old.

The news of his death comes just one day after representatives for the actor issued a statement denying he was dead after an internet hoax claimed the star had passed away on Saturday.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the actor was found in his bathroom around 11:15 a.m. by a screenwriter, who called 911, the official said.
(UPDATE: Wall Street Journal link: that is sited on all other websites shows up as "PAGE UNAVAILABLE
The document you requested either no longer exists or is not currently available." Can anyone verify this story - as all sites link to this specific URL WSJ article by Pervaiz Shallwani)

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is to determine exact cause of death - but law enforcement sources speaking to the New YorkPost have said that a drug overdose is to blame. Hoffman has admittedly struggled with drug addiction in the past, and reportedly checked himself into rehab last year for heroin abuse after years of being clean.

Initial reports claim that the actor was found in the bathroom of 4th floor apartment with a needle in his arm. 

Once again Hollywood claims another life. When will there be stricter measures in place to protect the one's who "Entertain"? 

RIP Philip. Gone too soon.
