Corey Haim Dies Of Overdose

80’s teen star Corey Haim passed away due to an apparent accidental overdose, according to the LA Times.

Haim was found unresponsive in an apartment near Burbank at 3.30am and was later taken to Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center. It’s not known which drugs the star had ingested but he had a known addiction to prescription drugs, particularly Valium.

Starring in The Lost Boys in 1987, Haim shot to fame and was tipped for big things but his career soon fizzled out and the drugs eventually took their toll on him.

At the time of his death he had several film projects on his plate and had recently appeared in Crank: High Voltage. It seems bigger and better things could have been on the horizon and a few of his completed films may still get released.

RIP Corey Haim 1971 – 2010
