Officials reportedly found about 50 envelopes of what they believed contained heroin in Hoffman's apartment. As law enforcement continues its probe into the actor's death, Broadway will honor Hoffman by dimming its marquee lights for one minute at 7:45 p.m. on Wednesday. The actor appeared on Broadway three times in his career, most recently as Willy Loman in Death of a Salesman, a performance that earned him his third Tony Award nomination.

The Labyrinth Theater Company will hold a candlelight vigil in honor of the actor Wednesday at 6:45 p.m. Hoffman was a member of the theater company and previously served as its artistic director. A private funeral will be held in New York City.
