NBC News reports that the Oscar winner, who died of an apparent heroin overdose, wrote about his time in rehab in May 2013, and about attending Narcotics Anonymous. He also wrote about his “demons” and drug dealings.
Sources told the news agency that some of the handwritten entries are hard to read.
“It’s stream of consciousness and difficult to follow,” said one insider. “In one line he refers to ‘Frank who always owes money’ and on the same page he writes about a 15-year-old girl from Texas.”
Another source said, “It seems he did at least part of it in rehab. It definitely contained some soul searching, but there is also a fair amount of rambling that doesn’t make sense.”
Although there are references to drug deals in the journal, authorities say that it was a tipster that led them to four suspects last week.
Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman kept a diary in the days leading up to his death, where he wrote about his battle with drugs and addiction.
