Dominick Brascia has been pointed out as the man who allegedly abused late actor, Corey Haim.
We all remember Haim, the Canadian-born actor became a Hollywood teen star of the 1980s. He became as famous for his struggles with substance abuse as his acting. He died in Los Angeles March 10, 2010 from pneumonia, which contradicts other reports that he died of an apparent prescription drug overdose. Haim was 39-years-old.
Haim was known for his close association to fellow child star, Corey Feldman. The two famously starred in “The Lost Boys” and went on to work in several movies together.
The show exposed the darker side of their lives as teen stars. And an unexpected confession was made.
In the first episode of the second season of The Two Coreys, Feldman and Haim seem to have some sort of fall out on their friendship. In the footage, Corey Haim can be heard telling Feldman, he was raped at age 14 by Feldman’s acquaintance.
Haim continues implying Feldman knew and did nothing about it. He then tells him he can’t be friends with him anymore.
Corey Feldman recently explained to Dr. Oz that he has retired from talking about the alleged sexual abuse Corey Haim suffered through.
However, a man named Greg Harrison, another friend of the late actor, has revealed the name of the person who allegedly assaulted Haim back in the 80’s.
In a lengthy Facebook post, Harrison not only points at Brascia, he also claims Feldman was in on covering up the scandal.
On September 20th, Harrison wrote:
“Let me take you back on this famous timeline, when Corey Haim was around 15 years old when he first moved to LA, to act in a little movie that was to be called, The Lost Boys,” Harrison wrote. “It was Corey Feldman who introduced him to Actor – Director and Pedophile Dominick Brascia. It is also public record in many interviews that Feldman did and is no secret, that Feldman was jealous of Haim. Corey Feldman introduced this pedophile to Haim and a lot of other boys.”

Dominick Brascia denies the accusations. He told media outlets, Corey lived with him when he was in his 20’s. Brascia says he helped him sober up for 30-days. He also says if Corey were alive, he would defend him and say, that never happened.
He also notes a difference with age, saying
“He [Haim] was 14 or 15 and his abuser whose identity he never revealed was in his forties. I’m in my fifties, the guy would be 73 today. If you believe this ‘friend of Corey’ you must believe Corey Haim lied.”
He is also a radio host. In 2003 he worked for AM 1150 KNRC Denver. The following year he hosted Fox Morning Blend – Beaumont, Texas.
In 2008 he was hired as the afternoon radio talk show host at WERC 960AM Birmingham, Alabama.
He is also listed as a former co-producer of ‘The Armstrong and Getty Show’. 650 KSTE, Sacramento, CA.
