Corey Haim’s funeral has been scheduled for Tuesday in Toronto and will be closed to the public. To cover the costs of the ceremony and burial, the website startifacts.com donated $20,000 to Haim’s family, which may also receive assistance from the City of Toronto. The family suggested that fans send flowers in Haim’s memory to the cancer unit in their local hospital instead of to them in Toronto. Over the weekend, reports surfaced that Haim was in possession of Oxycontin and possibly other painkillers linked with a large prescription drug ring currently under investigation. Haim’s official cause of death will not be released for a month.
