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.

via CNN:

 “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.

Heroin is the devil.

Reports surfaced Saturday morning of a murder-suicide involving a Kansas City Chiefs player. Just after noon, it was confirmed that the player in question was Jovan Belcher.
Belcher, 25, a starting linebacker for the Chiefs, reportedly shot and killed his girlfriend around 8a.m. this morning, before heading to the team’s practice facility where he was confronted by GM Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel outside the facility before killing himself.
The Kansas City Police Department reported that Belcher “thanked both men before taking his life,” and that Pioli and Crennel “did not feel threatened”.  
Police have not released the woman’s name, but confirmed she and Belcher had a 3-month-old child.
There is no motive for the shooting at this time. Our thoughts go out to everyone involved.
