The sad news of Cory Monteith’s death in a hotel room in Vancouver, British Columbia stunned fans of the Glee actor, who was only 31.
Sickening. Heartbreaking. And I hate the fact that I knew this was going to be the outcome of the Coroner’s report. If you’ve followed Dipped in Cream over the past five years, you know where I’m coming from on this subject.
“At this point there is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most-tragic accident,” the coroners service said in a statement, adding that no further details were available pending a full investigation.
Monteith, 31, was found dead Saturday in his room by staff members at Vancouver’s Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel after he missed his checkout time.
The actor spent time in rehab this year, checking into a drug addiction treatment facility in late March.
Monteith had been frank about his struggles with substance abuse, telling Parade magazine in 2011 that he began using drugs at 13 and by 19 went into rehab after his mother and friends intervened.”
Cory’s friends and castmates have given statements or posted on Twitter, with the exception of his co-star and fiancee Lea Michele.
I hope the media just leave Lea the hell alone, as well as Cory’s family.
