NYC Medical Examiners: Philip Seymour Hoffman Autopsy Inconclusive, Further Tests Needed

Academy Award-winning actor was found dead last weekend


NEW YORK (AP)—New York City medical examiners say an autopsy of Philip Seymour Hoffman's body is inconclusive, and they need to conduct more tests to determine what caused his death.

A medical examiners' office spokeswoman said Wednesday that there is no timetable for the autopsy to be finished. She declined to discuss the pending tests, but toxicology and tissue tests are typically done in such cases.
