Corey Haim was taken to the hospital in Burbank, California and pronounced dead at 2:15 AM (PST) from an accidental drug overdose at the age of 38. Throughout his career he had a history of prescription drug abuse, and a history of sobriety. It was something he struggled with in his life. At this time there’s no definite cause of death, the police say it’s most likely accidental. Whatever it is, he went too soon. We here 8 Days send our condolences to his friends and family.
We’ve lost a Lost Boy. (Too soon? Maybe.) And yes, while he technically wasn’t one of the “lost boys” in that movie… well, most of you get it. He’s the kid on the left in the picture. He was a teen idol in the 80’s, along with Corey Feldman. Over the past five or so years he was involved in a few different shows and movies, and was starting to get more and more involved in the movie industry. Check out Wikipedia and IMDB for more details.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to find a channel that’s going to play The Lost Boys.
