*** UPDATE 3-11-10 ***
Judy Haim, mother of Corey Haim, says that her son died of pulmonary congestion.
The grieving mother told Access Hollywood that the L.A. Coroner County's office gave her a "courtesy call" reporting its findings from her son's autopsy, which was completed on Thursday. The autopsy, she says, found that her son had an enlarged heart, and that his lungs were filled with water. Corey Haim was confirmed dead at age 38 on Wednesday morning.
Corey Haim is best known for his roles in the 1980's. If you are an 80s child, you know of all the movies, he has starred in. His recent role he played was himself in the A&E reality series 'The Two Coreys" with his friend Corey Feldman. It was canceled after the second season. I watched it and let me tell you Corey Haim did try to get clean but his demons were taking over.
My heart & prayers go out to his family in this time of need.
