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.

    I’m shock to learn this. Yes, he had drugs addiction issues, but at least, he tried to recover.
    He probably didn’t have the support he needed, from his girlfriend and from his co-stars.
    It’s ironic, because as Ryan Murphy and all say, Glee, it’s a great family, everyone support each other, it’s all about respect … Wow, great support.
    Anyway, all my condolences to his family and friends ♥

    this is so incredibly sad, im so shocked and choked up at the loss of the life of this young man. he was the heart of glee when it started, and i pray for him and his family and lea, life is so short, we have to acknowledge that we could lose anyone we love at any moment, so we must be kind and loving of those we care for with full understanding that we or they could leave us one day.

    Terribly sad. Cory has had a long battle with drugs and alcohol beginning when he was a teenager. He had even to rehab twice. He received plenty of support from his family and his girlfriend. Addiction is a horrible curse.

    @123456: You can have all the support in the world, but if you don’t support YOURSELF, then it won’t mean anything in the end. Cory fought but lost the battle, that’s all there is to it.

    I am so shocked just like everyone.
    I’ve loved Glee since the beginning, we saw his character growing up and changing since. He was amazing in last season.
    It’s weird to react like that because these people are actors, they live so far from us, I’m not even american, i’m french. We do not live in the “same world”, we just know them as fictional characters. Still. He seemed to be a very nice person.
    RIP Cory, you will be missed.

    As sad as these news are I hope people listen to the morale of this: drugs kill. When you’re an addict you think you’re in control but you aren’t and you need to let people help you.

    ps: you have to remain clean to have succesfully completed a rehab problem. Not the case.

    So tragic. Don’t do drugs. Not even once. You can get addicted from the first try. Don’t think it can’t happen to you. If you are human, you can become addicted. Say no to drugs!

    Anna Says:

    No the were planned on getting married..they have been dating for over a year. That is not PR, could of started out that way, but in the end they really loved each other. I can’t even imagine how lea and his friends and family feel right now. Prayers out to them, what a tragedy. He was a very talented young man.
