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 am so tired of Celebrities who had supposedly had taken medication accidentally.....what are they just three yrs old...and can't read!!! They know they shouldn't be taking other meds with other meds. Anna Nicole Smith, Heath Ledger, Michael Jackson, Brittany Murphy and NOW Corey Haim. It seem that they used the excuse that they were sick when taken their meds and they got confuse!! Yeah, right. They are not three yrs olds!!!!

The doctors need to lose their licenses for at least a year (teach them a lesson). Fine them to the hilt! They pass out these dangerous pills, like there candy.

And don't forget that Michael Jackson had a serious lung infection (pneumonia?) when he died/was killed. This was reported in the autopsy.
