Another interesting development…
The El Lay County Coroner has released Corey Haim's autopsy results, and word is that his tragic death was not directly caused by drugs.
Haim's cause of death is apparently listed as respiratory distress, or diffuse alveolar damage - most likely from his pneumonia - as well as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is when the muscle in one's heart thickens and cuts off the blood flow.
There was also a variety of drugs in his system, but the Coroner alleges that it was not to the degree where it would have played a part in his passing.
So sad. We wonder how much his prescription pill abuse could have contributed to his bad heart, though.
