[Gossip] Philip Seymour Hoffman's Death May Have Been Caused By Deadly Strain Of Heroin
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.03.2014



TMZ reports that Philip Seymour Hoffman may have died after taking a deadly strain of heroin. Police do not know the specific about the heroin found in Hoffman's New York City apartment but there were ten bags found with eight of them empty.

Police have been tracking a strain of the drug that has killed dozens of people on the East Coast last month. It is laced with fentanyl, a very strong drug prescribed for terminal cancer patients. It is 100 times more powerful than morphine and sometimes shuts down the respiratory system. The drug is sometimes called "Theraflu," "Bud Ice" and "24K". It's been linked to five deaths on Long Island, 22 deaths in Pennsylvania and 19 on Rhode Island, all in January alone.

Police don't know if it's related to Hoffman's death but they say "everything's in play" until they get the toxicology results.
