NEW YORK (AP) — An autopsy (解剖/驗屍) of Philip Seymour Hoffman’sbody is inconclusive, and tests will be needed to determine what caused his death, the city medical examiner’s office said Wednesday. Medical examiners’ spokeswoman Julie Bolcer said there was no timetable for the autopsy to be finished. She declined to discuss the pending tests, but toxicology (毒物學) and tissue tests are typically done in such cases.

星期三當地的法醫部門表示,菲利浦西蒙霍夫曼的解剖還是無法產生致死的確切證據,必須進一步檢驗以確定死因。法醫部的發言人茱麗波瑟說道,目前沒有時程表來規範驗屍結束的時間,但她拒絕談論接下來的檢驗要如何進行,但是常理來說毒物學檢測和組織檢測都會用上。

Hoffman, 46, was found dead Sunday with a needle in his arm, and tests found heroin in samples from at least 50 packets in his apartment in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, law enforcement officials have said. Authorities have been testing whether the drug was mixed or tainted (摻雜) with anything else. An official said authorities also found unused syringes (針筒), a charred (燒焦) spoon and various prescription medications, including a drug used to treat heroin addiction, a blood-pressure medication and a muscle relaxant (肌肉鬆弛劑).

霍夫曼享年46歲,星期日被發現身亡,手臂上插著針頭;執法人員表示在他曼哈頓的住處搜出50小包粉末,其中的採樣被驗出海洛因,而警方一直在檢測該藥物是否有混和或參雜其他的東西。警方也發現未使用的針筒,燒過的湯匙,還有各種不同的處方藥物,包含一種戒斷海洛因上癮症的藥物,還有一種控制血壓的藥物,以及肌肉鬆弛劑。

Hoffman had been frank about struggling with substance abuse. He told CBS’ “60 Minutes” in 2006 that he used “anything I could get my hands on” before getting clean at age 22. But in interviews last year, he said he’d relapsed, had developed a heroin problem and had gone to rehab (勒戒所) for a time.

霍夫曼一直以來都很坦白,表明他一直都有藥物濫用的問題。2006年他在美國CBS電視台的節目「關鍵60分鐘」中受訪:「22歲以前我能用的藥都用過了,直到22歲才戒掉這種惡習」。但是去年的訪問中,他說老毛病又犯了,有海洛因上癮的問題,而且還因此在勒戒所待一段時間。

His death came amid rising concern around the region about a powerful drug hybrid — mixtures of heroin and fentanyl (芬太尼-嗎啡藥物), a synthetic form of morphine — that has been linked to deaths in other states, including 22 deaths within a week last month in western Pennsylvania. But the drug found at Hoffman’s apartment tested negative for fentanyl, a police official said.

霍夫曼的死亡剛好發生在一種很強的混合藥物(一種由海洛因和芬太尼所合成的新型嗎啡)遭人濫用的區域,因此格外引人注意。由這種藥物所引發的死亡案件也發生在美國的其他地方,包含去年在賓州西部一周內就有22件死亡案例。但是警方表示,霍夫曼住處所搜出來的藥物被沒有檢測出芬太尼。
