Four people are in custody on drug charges after police investigating the death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman executed search warrants at three New York City apartments. Two people with knowledge of the investigation say a confidential source provided a tip that the suspects may have supplied Hoffman drugs. Police say undisclosed quantities of heroin and marijuana were found Tuesday night. The NYPD's intensive effort to determine the source of the drugs in an apparent accidental overdose is unusual. Courts have found that under state law drug dealers cannot be held liable for a customer's death.
