Glee Star Cory Monteith Dies At 31; Actor Found Dead In Hotel Room

Glee star Cory Monteith was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room at the age of 31.


Cory was found by the hotel staff at the Fairmont Pacific after he failed to check out Saturday morning.  The actor was seen hanging out with friends Friday night and then spent some time out on the town with them before returning back to the hotel alone.  No foul play is suspected and his autopsy should be complete by tomorrow. 

Cory’s rep shared, “We are so saddened to confirm that the reports on the death of Cory Monteith are accurate. We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss.”

Glee producers shared their shock, as well.  “We are deeply saddened by this tragic news. Cory was an exceptional talent and an even more exceptional person. He was a true joy to work with and we will all miss him tremendously.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.”

Cory checked himself into rehab earlier this year and seemed to be very well since he completed the program. 

Our thoughts are with his friends and family.
