Philip Seymour Hoffman

Planning for Long Heroin Binge

Exclusive Details

Philip Seymour Hoffman
was clearly prepping to use heroin for the long haul before he died, because we now know ... cops found approximately 50 heroin bags in the NYC apartment.

Law enforcement sources initially put the number of bags at 10 ... but now we know the number is 5 times that.  Our sources say a number of the bags were full ... along with a number of unused needles.  The upshot ... Hoffman was ready for a heroin binge.

This makes the story about a possible drug deal at an ATM Saturday night even more interesting ... if Hoffman purchased a large quantity of heroin.

TMZ, PLEASE leave this man alone. You are hurting the ones that love him. Let him rest in peace. You DON'T know what was going on in his mind. He had demons, we all do. Unfortunately his demons led to his death. Hope no one goes on and on and on when you all die. I'm sure you all have some skeleton's in your closet that you don't want revealed.

TMZ writers are not the most talented and they do tend to beat a horse into glue, but you read it! I can't understand why some of you read the story, look at the picture, then go crazy. You gave in to your own demons and morbid curiosity and read the article! Please don't blame the low budget staff for your own actions. If you don't like what they report, go elsewhere. It was fun to call them out on mistakes but there are so many, it grew old. I am responsible for what I read. I am not going to read an article then scream to high heaven because I read it! That is just stupid.

Better to put out the gruesome details surrounding dying like this than try and wrap it into a pretty package like the media did claiming Heath Ledger died from an "accidental overdose".
