What a terrible thing for his family, especially his children, to have to endure right now!  It really pisses me off to see people bring innocent children into the world and THEN decide that maybe the life they are leading is "a lie".  It really screws the kids up!

I guess it gets to me so much because that happened to a friend of mine.  Her and her husband waited nine years to have children, and then when they had two toddlers - he decides he doesn't want to be married anymore.  The kids are grown now and totally screwed up, raised by a single mother and an absent father.  I have a few gay friends that tell me it is very common for "married" men to frequent the gay bars where they hang out.  Make up your mind before you bring children into the world people!!!

They found him at 11:15 and didn't call the police until 11:36?  What took so long?

I saw a picture of him on Hannity last night - taken by a passenger on a flight from Atlanta to New York - he was stoned and slumped over in his seat the entire flight.

20 minutes. Not much really. You can probably expect they found him more at 11:20 - people tend to think in quarter hours when giving a statement. They are not trained cops or medics, who automatically note the time.
Throw in a few minutes to see if he wasn't just sleeping it off, a quick and panicky debate about whether to clean up the place, a bit of a freak out since he was their friend, and the delay becomes more understandable.

Same here.... it's pretty easy to tell if a person isn't breathing and is dead - especially if he died the night before rigor would have started to set in.

You both are considerably more practical than your typical New York screenwriter.

Well, the autopsy will show whether or not he had cocaine in his system.  If he didn't, this guy is just out for some attention or the Enquirer is just publishing its usual sh*t.

According to the coroner the autopsy was inconclusive and more testing will be conducted.

Toxicology usually takes a few weeks, IIRC.

Daily Mail via the Enquirer? Not exactly a reliable reporting chain.

A friend dies, saying "I loved that guy" is not exactly uncommon.

"I never said that, no," David Bar Katz said Wednesday after leaving the West Village apartment of Hoffman's longtime girlfriend, Mimi O'Donnell.

Aha!  Perhaps that's where the real motive lies?
