Corey Haim autopsy report expected soon

The Los Angeles coroner's ruling on what killed Corey Haim last month should be released this week, according to an investigator.

Haim, 38, died on March 10 after collapsing at the Los Angeles apartment he shared with his mother.

Autopsy finds Corey Haim's heart enlarged

Corey Haim, 38, died after collapsing in the apartment he shared with his mother, Judy Haim.

The autopsy on Corey Haim revealed the actor's heart was enlarged and his lungs were filled with water when he died, Haim's manager said.

The Los Angeles County coroner told Haim's mother that her son suffered from pulmonary congestion, manager Mark Heaslip said.

Heaslip said this was evidence that Haim's death was not caused by a drug overdose, but Brian Elias with the coroner's office said they are waiting for toxicology tests before deciding what killed Haim.
