As part of their investigation into his death, the NYPD recovered two diaries from the Manhattan apartment of Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Hoffman died on Feb. 2 at the age of 46. According to police sources, the Oscar winner was found with bags of heroin and a needle in his arm. He left behind a long-time girlfriend and three children, as well as many friends who mourned the actor last week at a private funeral in Manhattan.
His diaries did not include suicidal thoughts or chronicles of drug activity, according to sources who saw them, though the entries did provide insight into the actor's state of mind. The private journals contained musings about his struggle with addiction, as well as thoughts that were tough to decipher.
Some entries were legible, while others less so, and one person who saw the books said that some entries appear to either be disassociated ramblings or a creative exercise. Detectives have returned the journals, along with other personal belongings, to Hoffman's family.
