  • A doctor who was not involved in Corey Haim‘s autopsy thinks he died of an accidental drug overdose. “In my opinion it will prove to be an accidental overdose caused by the combination of three of the prescription drugs found at the scene Vicodin, Valium and Soma (a muscle relaxer), this could potentially be a lethal combination,” said Dr. Bruce Goldberger. “Both Michael Jackson and Brittany Murphy had fluid in their lungs at the time of death and it’s entirely possible that Haim did have an enlarged heart and that his lungs had become filled with water also. People who have been chronically using drugs over a long period usually develop cardio vascular disease which can mean an enlarged heart.” [Radar]
