Corey Haim obtained 550 illegal prescription pills before his death



We just knew the story was sadder than originally presented: The California attorney general says '80s actor Corey Haim obtained more than 550 prescription pills illegally in the three months before his death, the AP reports.

"Jerry Brown says Haim obtained the meds, which included Valium and Soma, through seven different doctors. Brown says investigators have talked to the doctors and they appear to have been duped," according to the AP report.

Haim died March 10 after collapsing in his mother's apartment. Coroner's officials have said they found four prescriptions in Haim's name in the apartment where he collapsed, and all were prescribed by a doctor treating the actor.
