Corey Feldman says he does not believe his “The Lost Boys” co-star and longtime friend, Corey Haim, took his own life.

him the day before that; [His mother] said he’s resting, he didn’t look
like he was overdosed at all. He was just running a temperature. He was
laying in bed. And that night, Corey, he went to sleep, and he asked
his mom to come into the room because he was having breathing problems,
‘Would you lie next to me in bed?’ So she laid next to him in the bed,
and she told Corey to roll on your side to see if it would help you
breathe better and Corey said he started feeling better. So they both
went to sleep, and then between 12 and one, she heard someone walking
around the room and she opened her eyes and it was Corey and he just
fell right to the ground.”
Police say Haim was taking
over-the-counter and prescription medications when he collapsed at the
Burbank apartment he shared with his mother. Authorities report that
his death was most likely due to an accidental prescription overdose.
