River Phoenix was an American actor who appeared in the film "Stand By Me." He died of a heroin overdose on October 31, 1993 at the age of 23. John Belushi was an American comedic actor who appeared in the film "Animal House." March 5, 1982. Chris Farley was a comedic actor who appeared in the film "Tommy Boy." On December 18, 1997. Janis Joplin was an American musician who had a number one hit with the song "Me and Bobby McGee." Joplin struggled with drug and alcohol addiction for much of her life. On October 4, 1970, she died of a heroin overdose. Philip Seymour Hoffman was an American actor who was in the film "Capote." He died of an overdose of heroin and other drugs on February 2, 2014 at the age of 46. Jim Morrison was an American musician who was the singer of The Doors. On July 3, 1971, Morrison died when he suffered cardiac arrest due to heroin and cocaine use. Sid Vicious was a British musician who played bass in the band The Sex Pistols. On February 2, 1979, he died of a heroin overdose. Cory Monteith was an American actor who was on the television series "Glee." On July 13, 2013, Monteith died as the result of a toxic combination of alcohol and heroin. And the list goes on and on. I got much of this information from Ranker http://www.ranker.com/list/famous-people-who-died-of-heroin-overdose/reference?page=2. We need to do everything we can to bring attention to the addictions that seem to haunt our nation without prejudice to race, sex, social class, and nationality. So sad.
