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.
Corey Feldman was widely known as Corey Haim‘s other half, and the actor spoke out about living with his drug-addicted friend on Larry King Live last night. Feldman opened in detail about what it was like to watch his friend and co-star battle drug addiction for many years, until his death on Mar. 10.
Feldman also described his friend as lonely, broke, destitute, saying Corey “had nobody to turn to.”
Calling himself Corey Haim’s “best friend,” Feldman lambasted those who were not there for Haim during his low points. “He very much felt that … he had nobody to turn to,” Feldman said. “I was one of the few people he had left in his life.” Read more
Corey Haim‘s neighbor, Jim Conessa, told HollywoodLife.com that he still appeared to be alive when he was wheeled into the ambulance earlier today — an account that is seconded by TMZ.com which says that Corey collapsed in front of his mother Judy, after 1 a.m. but didn’t die until later at the hospital, at 2:15 a.m.
While it’s being widely reported that Corey succumbed to an apparent drug overdose, his case is unusual. Here’s why. Read more
Actors Corey Feldman and Corey Haim became best friends more than twenty years ago when they worked together in the movie Lost Boys in 1987 and continued to collaborate until they had a falling out in 2007 due to Haim’s drug use. Following Haim’s sudden death due to a reported accidental drug overdose March 10, Feldman, 38, therapeutically blogged about his best friend and “brother,” saying he was so distraught with tears, his eyes wouldn’t open.
“I was awakened at 8:30 this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door. They informed me of the loss of my brother Corey Haim. My eyes weren’t even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face.
While Hollywood mourns the loss of ’80s idol and actor Corey Haim, our heart especially goes out to one person — Haim’s longtime and childhood pal, Corey Feldman.
Haim’s death actually marks the loss of two of Feldman’s close pals in under a year — he was also good friends with superstar Michael Jackson, who died of heart failure due to a Propofol overdose on Jun. 25, 2009.
At the time of Jackson’s death, he and Feldman — who began their friendship in the ’80s — were not on speaking terms. Sadly, the situation was similar when it came to Feldman’s friendship with Haim.
Actor and 80s teen idol Corey Haim passed away suddenly early March 10 from a reported accidental drug overdose. His neighbor at the Oakwood apartments in Los Angeles, Jim Conessa, witnessed the star’s last living moments and recalled them exclusively to HollywoodLife.com.

Actor and 80’s teen idol Corey Haim was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment this morning, Mar. 10, according to the LAPD and TMZ. He was 38.
