A New York City coroner says Philip Seymour Hoffman died from a toxic mix of drugs, the Associated Press reports.

Heroin, cocaine, amphetamines and benzodiazepines were what ultimately caused Hoffman's death, a spokeswoman for the NYC medical examiner said Friday. The death has been ruled an accident.

The actor was found dead, with a needle in his arm, in his Manhattan apartment in early February. Anoriginal autopsy conducted had been inconclusive.

The Oscar-winning actor was 46. He had three children with his estranged girlfriend, costume designer Mimi O'Donnell. In his will, he left his estate to O'Donnell and requested that his oldest son — his only child at the time of the writing — grow up in New York City for the arts and culture.

Hoffman won an Oscar in 2005 for lead role in Capote, and was also nominated in a supporting roles for Charlie Wilson's War (2007), Doubt (2008) and The Master(2012).

Though Hoffman had been sober for 23 years, he admitted in interviews last year that he had fallen off the wagon.

Family and friends, including many of Hoffman's celebrity co-stars, mourned the actor at his funeral Feb. 7 in Manhattan.

The actor had most recently been filming for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2(Part 1, out Nov. 21, was largely finished at the time of his death), in which he played rebellion leader Plutarch Heavensbee. He also played the character in 2013's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Though he had about seven days left to shoot on Part 2, the Nov. 20, 2015, release date is not expected to be altered, according to distributor Lionsgate.
