Did Corey know the pills he reportedly overdosed on might have been obtained illegally?

The prescription drugs that contributed to Corey Haim‘s death may have been obtained through an “illegal and massive prescription-drug ring.” A spokeswoman for the California Attorney General’s Office tells People, “We know there was a prescription pad stolen and there was a prescription written for him using that pad, so it was fraudulent and we know it was filled.”

The reported drug ring operates by stealing doctor’s identities and using them to order prescription pads. The L.A. Coronor’s Office obtained four bottles of prescription pills from the scene of Corey’s tragic death, but it’s not yet known if those pills were obtained through the alleged drug ring. People also reports that Corey might not have known about the ring at all.

According to a statement from the Attorney General’s office, the prescription pads bought through the ring are then sold to addicts or other people paid to get the prescriptions filled. The doctors whose names appear on the pads usually have no idea their identity has been stolen in the first place.

What an unfortunate twist to an already tragic situation.

What’s the tragedy? The guy was a hack actor who hadn’t done a worthwhile job since the mid 80’s. Why all the noise and trying to place blame.

Seven members of the US Military died in Iraq in the last four weeks. Let’s ask who’s responsible for their deaths and bring them to justice…that’s a worthwhile cause!

Hint: He’s living with his wife, Laura, in Dallas.
