Corey Haim's cause of death deferred, despite mom's claims



Tbd-coreyhaim031510 We know we're a tad late with a follow-up about Corey Haim's death, but we like our I's crossed and our T's dotted, which is why we can tell you that the while Corey's mom says she knows why he died, the coroner hasn't ruled just yet.

Judy Haim told Access Hollywood that the L.A. County Coroner's Office called her with results of her son's autopsy, saying that his cause of death was listed as pulmonary congestion, since Corey had an enlarged heart and lungs filled with water. Problem is, that's not yet the official cause of death.

“The cause of death has been deferred pending receipt of toxicology and histopathology tests," the chief investigator at the coroner's office said. Test results are expected in six to eight weeks. What this really means is that Corey may have died from water in his lungs, but what caused that problem is still up in the air. We'll tell you when we know more.
