Posted on

The L.A. Coroner’s Office confirms that Corey Haim’s autopsy was completed earlier today. But don’t expect any results yet — According to the chief coroner investigator, “The cause of death has been deferred pending receipt of toxicology and histopathology tests.” The office expects to get results in six to eight weeks.

UPDATE: According to Access Hollywood, Haim’s mother — Judy Haim — says the coroner’s office called her to disclose the actor’s cause of death. She claims she was told the autopsy found the actor suffered pulmonary congestion, and found he had an enlarged heart and water in his lungs.
