Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s illustrious life and career came to an abrupt end on Sunday, Feb. 1 when the 46-year-old actor was found dead in his Manhattan apartment in the West Village, the NYPD confirms to Us Weekly. (The Wall Street Journal was the first to report this.)

Hoffman was discovered alone in his bathroom at 11:30 a.m. in his apartment at 35 Bethune Street.
