No Illegal Drugs Recovered In Corey Haim's Death Investigation


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A coroner's official says authorities have recovered four prescription drug bottles bearing the name of actor Corey Haim but found nothing illegal while investigating his death.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter declined Friday to identify the drugs. Haim was battling flulike symptoms in the days before his death.

Winter says an autopsy was done Thursday, but his office is awaiting the results of toxicology tests that could take two months before determining a cause of death.

Haim died Wednesday in Burbank after collapsing at his mother's apartment. The 38-year-old battled drug addiction for years.

He earned fame for roles in the 1980s films "Lucas" and "The Lost Boys." He recently completed several film projects.
