One more name from Hollywood is added to the list of the actors
those who died of drug overdose. Actor Corey Haim is the latest
victim of drug overdose after Heath Ledger and Michael Jackson. The
Hollywood teen star of the 1980s collapsed at his mother's
apartment Wednesday morning and was later pronounced dead. He was
38. The Los Angeles Police have suspected the possibility of a
prescription drug overdose.
The 38-year-old actor started his international career with
movie Lucas alongside Charlie Sheen and Winona Ryder in
1986, but he came to limelight with the vampire movie The Lost
Boys in 1987. Haim was probably best known for his teaming up
with Corey Feldman after this movie.
His later movies like License to Drive and The Two
Coreys with Feldman were also the biggest hits. He made a few
dozen more largely dismissible pictures and one reality cable
series with the other Corey from that picture.
Recently, The Lost Boys star had openly talked about
overcoming his addictions after battling a drug habit for years.
However, sources claim that Haim was found unresponsive in his
apartment and an investigation is continuing. Los Angeles Police
sources said that it was an apparent overdose, but the type of
medication was unknown.
