Philip Seymour Hoffman's unfortunate passing was a tragedy.

And as it's believed he overdosed on drugs, the attention is now being focused on who supplied those drugs.

One man, Robert Vineberg, is at the center of the search along with three other suspects. And some of the information linked to Robert is going to put him in a pretty bad spot because he's looking guilty.

With his name in focus, we've found out five things about this man who might be connected to Philip's death.

1. A cellphone belonging to him had Philip's phone number in it. Three cellphones containing the late actor's number were actually found in a raided building, but so far Robert is the only one linked to one of those phones.

2. His stepdaughter, Christina Soto, is also linking him to Philip, but claims they weren't together recently. She commented:

"He said he hasn’t seen Hoffman since November. He was very upset. He said, ‘I wish he would have called me because I could have made sure if he was going to do something, someone was going to be there and he was going to be OK.'"

3. He has been arraigned on felony possession of heroin with an intent to sell and criminal use of drug paraphernalia. He has not yet formally been linked to Philip's death.

4. He could end up facing 25 years in prison if convicted. He received harsher charges than Max Rosenbloom and Juliana Luchkiw, who were not charged with heroin possession.

5. He is a former jazz musician who worked under the name Robert Aaron and played with musical acts like David Bowie, Paul Simon, Wyclef Jean, Tom Jones, and the late Amy Winehouse. His stepdaughter revealed that he turned to selling drugs when he couldn't get work:

"That’s my dad. He got into this because right now he couldn’t find any work — anything. This is the only thing he could think of. He couldn’t even find work washing dishes."

We just hope that those involved in selling dangerous drugs like heroin do learn their lessons and serve the time they deserve.

    prime suspect should be phillip seymour hoffman. He was a really good actor but its obvious he wanted to die. he loved his drugs more then his wife and three kids. thats hard to hear and say but having had a drug addicted sister i can say there is NOTHING the drug addict loves more then their drugs. RIP much sympathy to his family. my sister loved her drugs to death as well. I KNOW your pain.

    Mr Hoffman was a grown ass man, so why are they looking for the dealers like if they were the ones that murdered him. Mr Hoffman was a selfish idiot who didnt care to be there for his family and wanted that high more than his life, I mean come on?? wasnt he going to pick up his kids after he got high?? Wow! Dad of the year!! He was a well paid actor I'm sure if he wanted to (like he did in the past) get the resources to help him overcome this bad habit but he decided not to.

    Drug dealers do not kill people drugs kill people. Unless the guy was shooting him up with it then he should not be charged. They give drug dealers harder time then people who do bad things to kids. Sick world we live in today.
