Coroner: Renfro Overdosed on Heroin

2/8/2008 7:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

In a sad conclusion to a tragic life, the Los Angeles County Coroner confirmed that actor Brad Renfro died from an accidental overdose of heroin.

The cause of death was ruled "acute heroin/morphine intoxication," and the drugs were injected, according to the coroner's office. "The final manner of death has been ruled an accident," the coroner reported. The 25-year-old former child actor was found dead in his L.A. home on January 15.

TMZ was at a court hearing last August when Renfro told a judge he was trying to get his life back together and get clean. He had been scheduled to return to court on February 27 for a status check.

God rest his young soul. I do not understand how heroine has made such a swift and horrific comeback. And way to show respect to the dead, Richard Pierce. God forbid if you or any of your family or friends end up addicted to this or any other dangerous drug. Shame on you.

He probably had been clean for quite some time when he OD'ed. People die when they relapse because they try to pick up where they left off and the results are often fatal.
