Following the death of actor Corey Haim on March 10, California Attorney General reveals their new finding, stating that the actor had up to 20 doctors to ensure he got his drug fix.
The California Attorney General has fueled speculation Corey Haim died of a drug overdose - after confirming the star's body "took some very damaging assaults" from multiple prescriptions by over a dozen doctors. The "Lost Boys" star passed away in Los Angeles on March 10, he is believed to have collapsed at his mum Judy's house in the early hours of the morning and was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
California cops have discovered Haim, who had a long history of addiction, obtained an illegal order for painkiller OxyContin, written out on a fake prescription pad - which has since been linked to a suspected drug ring in San Diego, California. Officials at the state's Attorney General's office have confirmed one person has been arrested in connection with the case.
And Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. has revealed the tragic actor could have used up to 20 doctors to ensure he got his drug fix. He tells CNN, "How many people go to 10, 15 or 20 doctors and then run around to 10, 12 and more pharmacies to go fulfill them? And sometimes two different doctors on the same day? If he took all the pills that our records show he was prescribed over the last year and three months, he took some very damaging assaults on his body."
