According to People Magazine child star Corey Haim passed away yesterday at the age of 38 due to an apparent accidental drug overdose.
"Mr. Haim was declared dead at 2:15 a.m. at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center [in Burbank, Calif.]," Lt. Cheryl MacWillie of the Los Angeles County coroner's office tells PEOPLE of the Lost Boys star. "He was transported to the hosptial where he was prounced dead."

L.A. County Coroner Assistant Chief Ed Winter says the official cause of death for the actor, who had a long history of substance-abuse problems, is inconclusive pending an autopsy and toxicology tests. Winter said the LAPD believes Haim may have died from a possible accidental overdose.

An autopsy will likely be performed Thursday, according to MacWillie. Haim was found unresponsive at his mother's Burbank-area apartment.
This is really unfortunate, it seems like a lot of these child stars have been dropping like flies (no pun intended) in the last couple of years. The Chick Fix sends our prayers to Corey’s family and friends.
