One more name from Hollywood is added to the list of the actors those who died of drug overdose. Actor Corey Haim is the latest victim of drug overdose after Heath Ledger and Michael Jackson. The Hollywood teen star of the 1980s collapsed at his mother's apartment Wednesday morning and was later pronounced dead. He was 38. The Los Angeles Police have suspected the possibility of a prescription drug overdose.

The 38-year-old actor started his international career with movie Lucas alongside Charlie Sheen and Winona Ryder in 1986, but he came to limelight with the vampire movie The Lost Boys in 1987. Haim was probably best known for his teaming up with Corey Feldman after this movie.

His later movies like License to Drive and The Two Coreys with Feldman were also the biggest hits. He made a few dozen more largely dismissible pictures and one reality cable series with the other Corey from that picture.

Recently, The Lost Boys star had openly talked about overcoming his addictions after battling a drug habit for years. However, sources claim that Haim was found unresponsive in his apartment and an investigation is continuing. Los Angeles Police sources said that it was an apparent overdose, but the type of medication was unknown.
