corey-haim-la

Popular child actor (The Lost Boys, etc.) and part of the dynamic Corey & Corey duo from the 80’s, Corey Haim, died of an apparent drug overdose Wednesday morning in his mother’s apartment in Burbank, CA.

38-year-old Haim got out of bed shortly before 1 AM and collapsed in front of his mother. She dialed 911 at 12:53 AM, but it was too late. After being rushed to the hospital, Corey Haim was pronounced dead at 2:15 AM. Four prescription drug bottles were found nearby.

Authorities believe Corey died of an accidental drug overdose. His mother told cops he had been battling a prescription drug addiction for years. No illicit drugs were found inside his mother’s home. Haim also suffered from flu-like symptoms before he died.

Very tragic and very confusing. I’d always thought the first Corey to go would be Corey Feldman since he’s doing stuff like this now.

Update: Oh, wait. I guess Haim was doing pretty much the same. Trailer for American Sunset via The Wrap.
