Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter confirms that the '80s teen heartthrob was ill before he died and that investigators have recovered prescription drugs in his name from the scene.
"He had flu-like symptoms," said Winter. "He got out of bed at 1:30. He started to walk and went to his knees and his mom helped him back onto the bed. He became unresponsive within about a minute or so. She called paramedics and they transported him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 2:15."
