Drugs were not a factor in the death of actor Corey Haim. The actor’s mother placed an emergency call after finding him unconscious.
According to a reporter from the Los Angeles county coroner’s office released on May 4, the 1980s heartthrob died of natural causes from a combination of pneumonia, respiratory and heart trouble.
The coroner’s report follows California Attorney General Jerry Brown’s declaration last month that Haim obtained more than 550 prescription pills illegally from numerous doctors in the months before his death.
Haim, 38, obtained prescriptions from seven different doctors who claim they were duped into writing scripts for the troubled actor. Brown said the late actor was a “poster child” for prescription drug abuse and had been “doctor shopping” for pills. The drugs included Valium and Xanax and Vicodin, according to Brown.
Commentary: After all the drugs he had been on for the past few years, we here at i80s kind of think the drugs might have played maybe just a little role in his death.
That’s right. Freddy is back! The 1980s horror classic, A Nightmare On Elm Street opens [again] April 30 with a re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality.
One by one, Freddy terrorizes the folks on Elm Street within the curved walls of their dreams, where the rules are his, and the only way out is to wake up.
