Corey 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.
