More details are starting to emerge after the sad passing of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman with the latest reports that he withdrew as much as $1,200 from an ATM the night before his death.


This comes after the news four people have been arrested in relation to his passing.

New details have emerged of the days before Hoffman’s death. The day before his tragic death, the award-winning actor used a supermarket ATM to take out $1200 in cash in a total of six transactions.

According to TMZ, Police were tipped off by a drug user who says they spotted Philip visiting the building where the accused dealers were based.

Police converged on a building in New York’s West Village, search three apartments, and arrested four individuals, along with yielding roughly 350 bags of heroin.

The 50 or so bags of heroin in Hoffman’s apartment have tested negative for the powerful (and dangerous) additive fentanyl. The potent synthetic morphine has been linked to over 22 suspected overdose deaths in Western Pennsylvania.
