"Glee" Actor Monteith Found Dead in Vancouver Hotel Room

'Glee' producers mourn star Cory Monteith

 
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Actress Lea Michele is said to be devastated by the death of her "Glee" co-star and real-life boyfriend, Cory Monteith.
 
The 31-year-old actor was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room yesterday. A cause of death has not been determined, but police say there's no indication of foul play and he was believed to be alone when he died. Monteith had a history of addiction and checked himself into a treatment facility just last April.
 
The producers of "Glee" are describing Monteith as an exceptional performer and an "even more exceptional person."
 
The actor played Finn Hudson, the high-school-quarterback-turned singer on the Fox TV series.

VANCOUVER,B.C -- Police in Vancouver, British Columbia are reporting the death of actor Cory Monteith.

The 31-year-old played Finn Hudson on the popular FOX series, Glee.

Monteith was found dead inside his hotel room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in downtown Vancouver around noon on Saturday.

When he missed his checkout time, hotel staff went to his room to check on him, and discovered his body. Monteith had been staying at the hotel since July 6th.

Based on hotel security footage and key fob information, police believe that Monteith had been out with friends late into the night Friday, and into Sunday morning. But they said in a news release, they believe Monteith was alone when he died.

His cause of death is being withheld pending an autopsy which is scheduled for Monday. At this point, police do not believe foul play was involved.
