NEW YORK (AP) - New York City medical examiners plan to conduct an autopsy on the body of Philip Seymour Hoffman as investigators scrutinize evidence from the scene of the actor's death. That includes packets that law enforcement officials say are believed to contain heroin.

An autopsy is scheduled Monday. That's a day after Hoffman's body was discovered in his apartment in Manhattan's Greenwich Village. Two law enforcement officials say he was found with a syringe in his arm and with plastic envelopes of what was believed to be heroin.

Another law enforcement official says some packets were stamped with the ace of hearts symbol, and others with the words "Ace of Spades" and that symbol.

All the officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk about evidence found.
