Corey Haim will be buried in Toronto, Ontario, where he was born, the late actor's manager Marc Haislip confirmed to UsMagazine.com Thursday.

The former teen idol's family "want to do it back home," Haislip told Us. "But there will be a memorial in L.A." Dates for the occasions have not yet been set. The family plans on reaching out to the Hollywood community for donations to fund the burial and service.

In the meantime, the Lost Boys star's family has gathered in Los Angeles: his sister Cari and father Bernie have joined his mother Judy, with whom Corey lived in a low-rent apartment before he died Wednesday at age 38.

"She's not doing well at all. This is really hitting her," Haislip said of Judy, who is "very ill" with cancer.

As for the circumstances surrounding Haim's death, Haislip confirmed that Judy received a call from the coroner on Thursday. Although Access Hollywood had reported that she was told her son's cause of death, Haislip said that the call simply confirmed "symptoms of pulmonary congestion, enlarged heart, and water in the lungs."

He added: "she doesn't think [his death] was from [pill] abuse."

The final cause of death has been deferred pending toxicology and histopathology test, Harvey explained; the final report is expected in six to eight weeks.
