LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was found dead in his New York apartment on Sunday in an apparent heroin overdose, will be buried in a private funeral service, the late Oscar-winner's representative said on Tuesday.
The statement issued by Hoffman's publicist, Karen Samfilippo, did not say when the funeral service for family and friends would happen. It said it would take place in New York without specifying if that meant New York City or elsewhere in the state.

The results of Hoffman's autopsy are expected to be released on Wednesday, officials in New York City said.
