Coroner: Corey Haim Had a Heart Problem

3/11/2010 6:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Coroner: Corey Haim Had a Heart ProblemCorey Haim had pulmonary congestion, an enlarged heart and water in his lungs, according to the L.A. County Coroner's Office, but the Coroner has not determined that any of those conditions caused Haim's death.

Law enforcement sources tell us someone from the Coroner's Office called Corey's mom, Judy Haim, today and told her they found these conditions during the autopsy but that they could not say if the maladies caused Corey's death.

Our sources say the Coroner will not determine a cause of death until the toxicology report is in.

As we first reported, law enforcement found 4 prescription meds -- including Valium, Vicodin and Soma -- in the apartment.

I agree, Lost Boys was one of my favs growing up... I also liked the movie he starred in "license to drive" with his best friend Corey Feldman...

I think Hollywood Destroyed this man's life... I've heard stories of actors and actresses that had to do the most vile favors just to get a part or role in a movie... Just sickens me...

Yesterday when TMZ first reported this story didn't they say there were 4 EMPTY bottles found?

What happened to that and why is TMZ acting like it is unknown if any pills were missing from the bottles? Which is it TMZ?

How many time have we heard people cry out for help and walked away? Try listening when a person tell you their problem ,drugs drinking and help them!

Who will be footing the bill for ALL the junkies "heart problems" & somas & valium & hydrocodone,etc. when the health care reform act passes? Just like we pay for all the welfare recipients on unnecessary drugs just so they an get stoned now - probably at least 75% of painkillers prescribed to welfare recipients today are not needed and are abused or wind up on the street. How bad is going to be when government health care/prescription coverage is mandatory? How do some of you feel about paying for drug addicts "heart problems' and drugs for their addictions? Only the intelligent need reply please......

Obviously prolonged drug abuse will weaken the body, defiling internal organs & reeking havoc upon the immune system. He was probably exhausted from his schedule, on top of being sick... so sad to see this happen. I hope it turns out that he was clean of elicit substances & that he was not abusing his current prescriptions.
Lost Boys & Lucas were among my favorite movies growing up & I hope fans remember how great he really was.

@intel understand...

Most likely we will pay the taxes on all the junkies out there that get these meds just to sale them or get them for a fix...
It is hard to rule out the junkies from the people that need them... I wish there was a way to weed out the problem but, It's not likely that this will happen anytime soon...
I feel upset and at the same time i feel disappointed... I need pain killers cause of past injuries and because of my line of work

Mr. Intelligent,

Health Reform will not happen & if it does, it wont change much since our goverment has been screwed up royaly since day one. I rather complain about having to pay for the death penalty for lifeless women who kill their children. Just throw the bitch alive in a pit of fire!

I guess no one thinks Brittany and other young celebs are dying from H1N1...check out other young adults that are not known,for deaths in your LA area...could be the flu H1N1 is hitting hard. Immune systems are down leaving them suseptable to this flu. It is fact this flu hits fast and can kill quickly. i'm just saying...
