The New York Medical Examiner’s Office offered an initial report from its autopsy on Philip Seymour Hoffman and the results are, frustratingly, inconclusive. More tests are needed, the office said, and while a spokeswoman wouldn’t share details of those tests with the Associated Press, the news service noted that “toxicology and tissue tests are typically done in such cases.” Police, meanwhile, are still investigating the death as a suspected drug overdose after Hoffman was found with a syringe still in his arm.
