Corey Haim autopsy unearths heart condition

Friday March 12, 2010

Although an official cause of death is yet to be determined, Corey Haim's mother has said the coroner called her to say her tragic son had suffered pulmonary congestion.

The autopsy results - which have not been publicly released - also reveal the Lost Boys star had an enlarged heart and water in the lungs, People reports.

Shortly before he passed away on Wednesday, 38-year-old Corey was suffering from flu-like symptoms and a high temperature. "The final cause of death has been deferred pending additional tests that have been ordered," coroner Chief Craig Harvey announced on Thursday.
