Update: Corey Haim's name found on drug-ring prescription

California officials revealed that the late actor Corey Haim's name has turned up in their investigation of a major drug ring. Though the L.A. coroner's office has not yet said what killed the '80s teen idol at the age of 38 last week, he had long battled addiction. Authorities found prescription drug bottles in his home -- all prescribed by a doctor -- but California Attorney General (and candidate for governor) Jerry Brown told the Associated Press that Haim's name was found on a fake prescription for OxyContin uncovered in the ongoing state investigation. Haim's agent told the AP that he thinks the actor had an adverse reaction to meds, rather than an overdose.

This is how I wish to remember Corey. He mad a 10 minute documentary in 1989 right after "Lost Boys" and he was still trying to hold on to his fame.
