Actor Corey Haim’s death certificate is out. The official cause of death isn’t.
TMZ, which traffics in celeb deaths like no other news source (they broke the news of Michael Jackson’s death, remember?) quotes sources saying “the L.A. County Coroner’s Office is waiting for toxicology results, and they could prove revealing on two counts.”
The Coroner’s Office has indicated that Haim, a who became a teen idol in the 1980s with roles in films including “The Lost Boys,” had pneumonia. But a number of medications including Valium, Vicodin, Soma and Haloperidol were discovered when his body was found last week. For now the death certificate lists the cause as “deferred” while authorities continue to investigate.
Haim was 38.
Meanwhile, E! reports that Corey Feldman won’t be attending his friend’s memorial.
“In the days following my best friend Corey Haim’s death, I have spent much time with his mother Judy, who has always been like a mother to me,” the actor explains in a statement. “I would love nothing more than to be by her side at Corey’s funeral, however, due to their strong religious beliefs and need for privacy, the family has decided to make Corey’s funeral on Tuesday a small private affair.
“Understanding the recent media attention and to be respectful of the family’s wishes,” Feldman continued, “I have decided not to attend.”
