    Thumbs down Cause of Brad Renfro death: HEROIN OD

    Coroner: Renfro Overdosed on Heroin
    Posted Feb 8th 2008 4:37PM by TMZ Staff

    In a sad conclusion to a tragic life, the Los Angeles County Coroner confirmed that actor Brad Renfro died from an accidental overdose of heroin.

    The cause of death was ruled "acute heroin/morphine intoxication," and the drugs were injected, according to the coroner's office. "The final manner of death has been ruled an accident," the coroner reported. The 25-year-old former child actor was found dead in his L.A. home on January 15.

    TMZ was at a court hearing last August when Renfro told a judge he was trying to get his life back together and get clean. He had been scheduled to return to court on February 27 for a status check.

    No surprise, considering his history but still sad. So much for him dying from tattoo complications.

    I'm really grateful I never got caught up with hard drugs. Sounds like a living hell. I feel badly that he did however and his potential as an actor and person was never realized. Very sad.

    He came up from nothing.....sad that he couldn't stretch his good luck and talent further. I enjoyed his work. He gave me the chills in 'Apt Pupil.'
    25 is too young......RIP Brad

    I don't feel sad about the death of anyone who dies of a drug overdose. They knew what they were getting into when they started taking the drugs, unless they stupidly thought they were invincible.

    While it's easy to rip on people who die of a drug overdose and say that they 'were asking for it' or 'got what they deserved' the truth of the matter is nobody that takes drugs is looking to get addicted or expecting to OD. That's not an excuse for drug addicts, it's just a fact.

    I agree that people are stupid to get into drugs. I just think its sad that someone wasted such talent and potential, and sad for his son and family.
