Corey Haim 1971-2010
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Famous 80’s heartthrob Corey Haim was found dead early this morning. Exact cause of death is still unknown, but the actor was suffering from flu-like symptoms before he passed. A police sergeant on the scene said that Haim had taken various over-the-counter prescription drugs to combat his illness, but it was too early to say that drugs of any kind were involved. Haim had a long history of drug abuse, and was in and out of rehabilitation clinics over 15 times.
News just recently broke of Haim’s death, but of everyone I’ve talked to that was alive in the 80’s, he was in at least one of their favorite movies. The tandem of Haim and Feldman was a staple amongst 80’s films and Haim appeared in such films as LUCAS, THE LOST BOYS and LICENSE TO DRIVE. He had struggled recently, but appeared in the A&E show ‘The Two Coreys’ with Feldman.
