Only three of the many people who expressed their condolemses are aware of the real reason of his death. He was the cause of his own death due to drug abuse.

@???:

Everyone is well aware. They chose not to mention the how or why because it is not necessary – he has been struggling with addiction his entire life and, for 23 years, managed to beat it. He was a phenomenal actor and a highly intelligent man. I don’t think anyone will ever truly know why he chose heroin again, but I also don’t think anyone should.

@???: How to make you understand that people have private lives and personal problems that are not problems of the public. Unless the cause of death of a person is murder, the cause is irrelevant. It is a great actor who has died is a shame. Try to remember when someone died from AIDS 20 years ago, it was like a scandal to the cause of death while the important thing is how amazing it was that man!
