Police believe these 4 people had something to do with, even possibly supplied Hoffman with the drugs that ultimately ended his life at 46. Much too young.
Police arrested Robert Vineberg, 57, Thomas Kushman 48, and charged them with felony drug possession.
Two younger people, Max Rosenblum and Juliana Luchkiw, both 22, were arrested and charged with misdemeanor drug possession.
Luchkiw, a student at The New School, was camera shy at the 9th Precinct Station House in Manhattan Wednesday morning.
“Stop taking pictures, stop taking pictures,” she yelled at a photographer.
Her colleague Rosenblum tried to console her.
“This has nothing to do with you, babe,” he said.
When asked if he sold Hoffman heroin Vineberg, a musician who goes by the name Robert Aaron and has played with stars like Wyclef Jean and Tom Jones, denied it.
“No, I did not,” he said sheepishly.
Sad stuff. Nothing is going to bring him back, though. But hopefully this may keep some off the streets? Who am I kidding. That won’t happen. Depressing.
