He died tragically of a drug overdose on Sunday (February 2) and Philip Seymour Hoffman may have purchased his lethal dose near a New York City ATM just hours before.

According to FOX411, the “Along Came Polly” actor visited an automated teller machine to grab some cash around 8pm on Saturday night (February 1).

And an eyewitness shared that Hoffman withdrew a large amount of money which he then handed over to two men who were carrying messenger bags, presumably full of contraband.

At this point, the NYPD is going through surveillance footage from the ATM’s camera and other bank video in hopes of identifying the drug dealers who sold Philip the heroin that led to his demise.

In addition, TMZ reports that police found approximately 50 heroin bags in the NYC apartment. Law enforcement sources initially put the number of bags at 10, but sources revealed that the number is closer to 50 full bags of the controlled substance.
