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.

While those closest to the 1980s teen actor say they don't think he overdosed, California Attorney General Jerry Brown last week called Haim "the poster child" for the problem of addicts "doctor shopping" for dangerous drugs.

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

The coroner has been waiting on toxicology lab results before deciding the primary cause of Haim's death, Los Angeles County deputy coroner Ed Winter said. With that completed, the coroner is wrapping up the autopsy report, he said.

The initial autopsy examination revealed Haim suffered from pneumonia and had water on his lungs and an enlarged heart, Winter said.
