The Los Angeles Coroner's Office released their report on the death of actor Corey Haim, and have determined the troubled onetime child star died of natural causes. Haim's death has been attributed to "a combination of pneumonia and respiratory and heart trouble, and not from an overdose of prescription drugs as suspected," according to On the Red Carpet. The drugs found in Haim's system were "not a factor in his death," notes the Washington Post, adding, that despite "low levels of both over-the-counter and prescription drugs and some marijuana in his body," his death was "natural."
