Philip Seymour Hoffman was killed earlier this month by a deadly mixture of heroin, cocaine, and several other drugs -- this according to the NYC medical examiner.

The medical examiner just released the official cause of death -- listing "acute mixed drug intoxication" as the reason PSH passed away suddenly on February 2nd.

According to the medical examiner, the drugs in the actor's system at the time of his death were heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines (anti-anxiety) and amphetamines (uppers like Adderall).

Mixing heroin and cocaine is often termed "speedballing." It's the same mixture that killed Chris Farley, River Phoenix, and John Belushi.

Addiction is a mental illness, very similar to the ones that afflict brains that post most of the below comments.

He wasn't killed, killed would mean someone took his life. He took his own life once he started heroin.

why are people mourning him? If someone offers you heroine and you don't run the other way as fast as you can, especially if you have kids, then you deserve everything you get. I only feel sorry for his friends and family, not him.

This guy was just a Junkie. Loser Junkie. When we see other Junkies walk down the street we turn and run. We don't celebrate them.

Jesus f--king Christ. If he had a life insurance policy that is a suicide. He was already rich anyway. I have no sympathy I'm sorry, just none. People who actually commit suicide have painful lives, this guy was just high as balls.

Gluttonous fool couldn't take care of himself, much less 3 children. I'm sure they don't give a rat's ass about Chicago 'culture' and never will.
