The grieving mother told Access Hollywood that the L.A. Coroner County's office gave her a "courtesy call" reporting its findings from her son's autopsy, which was completed on Thursday. The Coroner's office has not, however, released an official cause of death in the star's death, and is not expected to do so until toxicology tests are complete.

The autopsy, she says, found that her son had an enlarged heart, and that his lungs were filled with water. Corey Haim was pronounced dead at age 38 at Providence St. Joseph's Medical Center in Burbank, Calif. early Wednesday morning. Judy lived with her son in his L.A. apartment, and saw him stumble, struggle to breathe and collapse before calling 911, according to the actor's agent.
