LAPD sources confirm that Corey Haim was found dead in an apartment complex early this morning from an apparent drug overdose. Haim was 38 years old and had gained the majority of his fame through 80s cult movies such as The Lost Boys and License to Drive.
After his major motion picture career apparently fizzled out, Haim collaborated with the “other” Corey, Corey Feldman, on their short-lived reality show The Two Coreys, which aired on A&E in 2007 and 2008. Both boys at that point had admitted to being victims of sexual abuse at a young age. The two decided not to resign for a third season because Feldman refused to work with Haim until he “cleaned up” his “addictions.”
Haim never made any secret about his previous drug and alcohol addictions; he claimed that he had been in and out of rehab fifteen times or more.
Corey was found this morning at approximately 3:30 AM and authorities are claiming Haim to be victim of an accidental overdose.
RIP, Corey, and may you finally have some peace from your demons.
