Corey Haim Connection to Massive Drug Ring

3/12/2010 8:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Corey Haim Connection to Massive Drug RingCorey Haim's death is now under investigation -- and has been linked to an "illegal and massive prescription drug ring."

State Attorney General Jerry Brown
says his office is conducting a probe of Haim's death because an unauthorized prescription in his name was found during a probe of fraudulent drug-prescription pads in San Diego.

Brown said the prescription drug ring under investigation operates by ordering prescription drug pads from authorized vendors using stolen doctor identities -- i.e., identity fraud.

The pads are sold on the street to prescription drug addicts or dealers.

The A.G. notes that many of the doctors whose names are printed on the forms are unaware that his or her identity has been stolen.

His "friends" are all (((GHOULS))) scrounging around his apartment before he's even buried *selling* his stuff on eBay so they can ALLEGEDLY "help his mom pay for his funeral".

Uh... cremation costs no more than $100.00 and you can rent a small hall for another $80 for a low-key memorial.

Stop lying, you deadbeats! You want to *profit* off of his death. Pure and simple. Sick!

This makes the most sense. This loser certainly couldn't quit cold turkey of mood-altering drugs of an ilk. He traded one substance (illegal drugs) for another (prescription meds). Danny Bonaduce recently said it best on a Today show interview... Prescription drug addiction is the deadliest because of its unlimited *legal* supply and comparatively minor expense. What I find comical is the outpouring of "sympathy" and affinity that this Hollywood moron is now attracting. Where were these same mourners (Hollywood or otherwise) when he was purportedly begging for a slice of pizza, habitating within a month-to-month apartment, and now requires PayPal charity for his own damned burial. Where were these people when he could'nt even secure (or wouldn't apply for) a job bagging fries at McDonald's?

Story's between-the-lines translation: Doctor named on Haim's Rx vials claims not to have written said prescriptions. "That damn drug addict must've stolen my pad!"

Hey dummy, reading is fundamental. Just to help you out, it said that the doctors were most likely UNAWARE DUE TO THIS BEING IDENTITY THEFT.

Make sure when you go out that you wear your helmet so you don't hurt yourself walking down the street.

So freaking what???? They did the same thing to Anna Nicole, Michael Jackson and now Corey!! It doesn't mean a thing! All they are doing is wasting the tax payers money, as usual!
They really don’t give a crap who’s responsible for drugging these people! As soon as they find out, they are paid off with hush money! Go figure!!
