Cory Monteith Dead at 31

Cory Monteith has passed away at the age of 31.

The Glee actor was found dead in a room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver, Canada, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Cory had checked into the hotel on July 6 and was expected to check out today. When he missed his checkout time at noon, hotel staff went to his room on the 21st floor and found him dead. There has not been an official cause of death given yet, though foul play is not suspected. It is being speculated that it could have been a drug overdose.

Cory recently went through rehab to be treated for substance addiction and successfully completed a program after a month.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Cory was spotted looking happy at a photo shoot for the upcoming fifth season of his hit series Glee alongside his girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele. The new season is scheduled to premiere in September.

We send our thoughts and condolences to Cory‘s loved ones at this difficult time.
