This is so sad and shocking! The LA County Coroner’s Office just released more information regarding the death of Corey Haim.
More startling developments in the sudden and tragic death of ’80s icon Corey Haim, 38, have been released. TMZ reports the LA County Coroner’s Office have found that Corey had an enlarged heart and pulmonary congestion which caused water to be found in the actors lungs. The LA Coroner’s Office will not say this was the official cause of death. Pulmonary Congestion can affect breathing and make one feel as though they are drowning.
LA officials told TMZ Mar. 11 that four pill bottles, containing incredibly strong prescription drugs, were allegedly found following Corey’s death on Mar. 10. The report says generic versions of Vicodin and Valium, as well as the muscle relaxer Soma and an anti-psychotic med Haloperidol, were all found in his mother Judy’s Oakwood, CA apartment. And shockingly, they were all prescribed by the same LA psychiatrist just days before the actors death.
The coroner’s office will not confirm or specify the report, but according to TMZ, law officials say Corey died of an accidental overdose.
HollywoodLife.com spoke with Jim Conessa, a neighbor who watched as Corey was taken out on a stretcher in the early hours of Mar. 10. “I saw him being wheeled out around 1 a.m. and I thought he looked alive,” Conessa said. “The ambulance was here about 30 minutes. Corey still had an oxygen mask. He appeared to still be alive.”
Corey has been in and out of rehab around 15 times, and he has even admitted to taking as many as 85 Valium pills a day.
Canadian-born Haim starred in the films Murphy’s Romance, The Lost Boys, License to Driveand Dream a Little Dream. He and his frequent co-star Corey Feldman earned the name “The Two Coreys” and even starred in an A&E ‘reality’ called The Two Coreys from 2007 to 2008.
