As Corey Haim's family begins making preparations for his funeral and burial in his native Toronto, Ontario, an actress who worked with the late actor on his very last film says that she and her castmates saw signs of trouble.
"I knew something was up," Liana Mendoza claims to E! of Haim's behavior on the set of the indie film Decisions.
"Other castmembers were talking about it…People would say, 'Whoa, he is cracked out right now."
Although she never saw Haim consume drugs or alcohol, Mendoza worried about Haim's hyperactive demeanor. "It was all love and hugs and kisses…he just talking all the time."
The actress added that Haim would show up on the film set on his days off. "I just thought he might not want to be alone or something. It seemed like he needed a lot of love."
Haim died at age 38 in an L.A. hospital early Wednesday morning; preliminary autopsy results confirm symptoms of pulmonary congestion, an enlarged heart and water in his lungs. Cause of death will be deferred pending toxicology and histopathology tests, which should take six to eight weeks.
