Coroner: Corey Haim's Mom Flushed His Drugs

5/4/2010 6:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Corey Haim's mother told officials she flushed Corey's entire prescription drug stash down the toilet in the hours after his death because she didn't want them in the wrong hands -- and she didn't know cops would be investigating the scene, this according to a newly released autopsy report.

The L.A. County Coroner's Office just released new documents, Haim's mom stated that when she returned from the hospital, "she emptied the other bottles into the toilet because she didn't want anyone else to get hold of the medication and she didn't know the police would be responding to her residence."

According to the report, Haim's mom flushed 7 pills of the muscle relaxer carisoprodol after he died.

Haim's mom also told officials he may have used marijuana at some point in the last 2 days before his death.

Do you blame her?...LAPD would have made a big deal out of it, even though the drugs didn't cause his untimely death...



I would have done the same to spare my son from the snide comments made by douchebags...

She's lying but I don't blame her. She had the good sense to be ashamed of what a massive trainwreck her son was and thought she could sweep some of it under the rug.

No of course not, years of drug abuse and using illegally obtained narcotics played no part what so ever in killing the guy with heart disease,... nope didn't do any harm at all. You are a moron Hussie. Drugs killed him, if he hadn't been getting illegal scripts for heavy narcotics he might have had the sense to seek help for, take the proper medications for, and follow the doctors advice to make sure that he lived as long as possible with this heart issue... but nope... the Vicodine and Oxy were what was important... Please.

I know they said drugs did not cause his death, but why didn't she flush them before he died?

DON'T BLAME HER ONE SINGLE BIT. SHE RID HERSELF OF THE THINGS THAT WERE TOXIC TO COREY DURING HIS TIME ON THIS EARTH, DRUGS. AND I REALLY WISH YOU PEOPLE WOULD STOP SAYING THAT HIS HEART CONDITION WAS CAUSED BY DRUGS, PEOPLE HAVE STATED, EVEN THE CORONER, THAT IT WAS MOSTLY GENETIC. PERHAPS HIS MOTHER SHOULD GET TESTED AS WELL FOR HEART DISEASE. REST IN PEACE, COREY.

Flushing Meds down the drain....no wonder water tests are showing up around the country with traces of drugs. I wonder if Federal Gov't will file charges agaist her for illegaly dumping into the water supply as a violation of the Clean Water Act? I wish all Medicine bottle listed it is a violation of Federal Law (Clean Water Act) to flush them. Take those Meds back to the pharmacy or doctors office.

This is sad. I was in love with him in my day lol, when he was a young drug free cutie. As far as the drugs moms knew what was going on... and weed has never killed anybody so I dont even know why that was thrown in there. Sadly this is not the first prescription drug aided death since the dont want to say it was an OD, and it sadly will not be the last!!!!!!!

Get over it peeps, she was raised in a culture that's long recommended flushing drugs to get rid of them. So she didn't get the memo that times have changed. Big deal that doesn't make her stupid or environmental criminal #1 to be hunted down by the EPA and made an example of. And BTW there's still quite a few drugs that the FDA recommends flushing as the preferred way to dispose of them at home. It's not like the government isn't sending out mixed messages on this... http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/ResourcesForYou/Consumers/BuyingUsingMedicineSafely/EnsuringSafeUseofMedicine/SafeDisposalofMedicines/ucm186187.htm



"Does flushing the medicines on the list down the toilet or sink drain pose a risk to human health and the environment?



We are aware of recent reports that have noted trace amounts of medicines in the water system. The majority of medicines found in the water system are a result of the body’s natural routes of drug elimination (in urine or feces). Scientists, to date, have found no evidence of harmful effects to human health from medicines in the environment.



Disposal of these select, few medicines by flushing contributes only a small fraction of the total amount medicine found in the water. FDA believes that any potential risk to people and the environment from flushing this small, select list of medicines is outweighed by the real possibility of life-threatening risks from accidental ingestion of these medicines.



MEDICINES RECOMMENDED FOR DISPOSAL BY FLUSHING
This list from FDA tells you what unused or expired medicines you should flush down the sink or toilet to help prevent danger to people and pets in the home. Flushing these medicines will get rid of them right away and help keep your family and pets safe.



FDA continually evaluates medicines for safety risks and will update the list as needed.
