Corey Haim Death Certificate

3/15/2010 12:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Corey HaimCorey Haim's death certificate is coming out ... and we've learned the cause of death is listed as "Deferred."

Sources tell us the L.A. County Coroner's Office is waiting for toxicology results, and they could prove revealing on two counts. First, they want to see if Corey had fatal levels of drugs in his system.

But, we're told, even if there are no fatal drug levels, certain drugs could have stopped Corey's heart. The Coroner's Office says Corey had pneumonia. As we first reported, 4 drugs were found in the apartment where Corey died -- Valium, Vicodin, Soma and haloperidol, an antipsychotic drug.

Valium, Vicodin and Soma all slow respiratory rate and could stop a person's breathing when taken while pneumonia is present.

We do not know if Corey took the prescription drugs.

It's interesting that Brittany Murphy's cause of death was a combination of pneumonia and prescription meds.

I wonder if it's the extended heavy use of these narcotics that slow and weaken the respiratory system that is causing the lungs to be so inefficient that pneumonia develops?

THEY'RE ALL A BUNCH OF DRUG ADDICTS. IF THEY'RE STUPID ENOUGH TO DO IT THEY DESERVE WHATEVER THEY GET. HOLLYWOOD THINKS THEY ARE ABOVE THE LAW SINCE WHEN THEY NEVER GO TO JAIL FOR DOING ANYTHING. BUT THEY'RE NOT ABOVE DYING FROM BEING A DUMBASS.

I lived in LA for a couple of years and I was amazed at how many cases of pneumonia I was aware of there, myself included. Is the incidence rate higher there for some reason?

Yeah that's just too weird. So many cases of pneumonia in LA. I've never known anyone who died of pneumonia. Whats the deal in LA? It has to have something to do with the drugs as well. It just has too.

CNN is reporting that Corey Feldman will not attend the funeral in Toronto. The family wants to keep it small and private.

I read that Feldman wasn't going to the funeral because of religious reasons but I thought they were both Jews? If they are both Jews then there shouldn't be a problem.

Interesting that they found haloperidol as well...it is an older antipsychotic drug that has gone somewhat "out of style" in the medical world due to its tendency to cause cardiac dysrhythmias and even suden cardiac death....especially in somehwat with underlying heart disease, which TMZ reported that Corey did have.

So sad :(
