a Death of anybody is a tragedy, regardless of the circumstances. I would hope we should all have compassion and empathy for someone like this who clearly struggled with his demons. How sad of a life it must have been for him.

How sad of a life it must have been for him.

He was very empty from what I saw from the show he was on. He kept referring to the girls he dated as a teen (Alyssa Milano, Nicole Eggart(sp)like they were part of his popularity. It was really pathetic to the point of not deserving sympathy

His parents let him run wild and make his own rules, blow his money,according to his own Mother, at the age of 14 when he was on top.

She wanted him to enjoy his fame. She was partly responsible for his life running aground.

By comparison, Corey Feldman's parents spent his money and sucked him dry, kicking him out when he protested to being a regular on Hollywood Squares. But he picked himself back up. Corey Haim didn't.

(all of this is according to the A&E biography on the two before their show premiered)
