Teen Idol Corey Haim Found Dead

Corey Haim Dead - Troubled teen star Corey Haim was found dead earlier this morning in Los Angeles. He was 38.

Police confirm that his body was found unresponsive in his apartment around 3:30 AM. Corey Haim has had a long history of substance abuse problems, and authorities believe he passed away from a accidental drug overdose.

He was pronounced dead Providence St. Joseph's Medical Center in Burbank. His mother was with him at the time of his death.

Coroner's Lt. Cheryl MacWillie said an autopsy would determine an official cause of death.

Haim became a teen heartthrob in the 80s after appearing in the 1986 film "Lucas" and 1987's "The Lost Boys," which also starred fellow teen idol Corey Feldman.

Both actors appeared together on the A&E show "The Two Coreys," which aired from 2007 to 2008, but Corey Feldman told Corey Haim they could no longer work together until Haim got help for his substance abuse problem.

Our condolences go to his family and friends. Such tragic news.
