Coroner on Haim: Natural Death, Not Drugs

5/4/2010 5:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Corey HaimTMZ has learned the L.A. County Coroner is about to release the report on Corey Haim's death ... and it was not caused by drugs ... it's listed as a natural death.

In lay terms, Corey had a bad heart and pneumonia.  As for drugs, there were traces of several drugs but nothing severe enough to contribute to Haim's death.

As for the causes of death .... diffuse alveolar damage -- respiratory distress.  In addition, the Coroner found hypertrophic cardiomyopathy -- the muscle in his heart thickened, making it hard for blood to flow.

And the Coroner also found a hardening of the arteries that supply blood to the heart.

Story developing...

Yeah he had a bad heart because on long term drug use. duh. The body can only take so much before it says I give. That is what most drug addicts die of. Their bodies just give out.

@whamo, "nothing natural about dying at 38"??? excuse me! My stepdad died at 37 from the very same thing! Pretty foolish comment since death can happen to anyone, anytime, and for any reason.

Yeah he had a bad heart, don't tell me years of heavy ddrug use had nothing to do with that,at the very least the drugs would make any natural condition worse... he may not have OD'ed but that doesn't mean that drugs didn't kill him, they'd been doing their damage for years. These diseases usually kill men at a much older age, not 38.

Finally... the TRUTH! Now prescription pill abusers can sleep a little easier (especially if they've taken xanax) knowing that copious amounts of opiads and other narcotics don't hurt you... whew! For a while there I was gettin' worried. Now...where's my bottle of... oh here it is...Gulp!
Ahhh... suddenly I feel a lot better.
