Corey Monteith Found Dead in Hotel Room

Monteith Dies

Corey Monteith, star of hit TV series Glee, was found dead Saturday night in his room at the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver.  Monteith, who played Finn Hudson in Glee, admitted himself to online addiction treatment for substance addiction in late March.  The 31-year old actor claims he has been struggling with substance abuse and had already been to rehab when he was 19.  For his recent treatment, he received tremendous support from colleagues and girlfriend Lea Michele. He had to appear in limited capacity for Glee’s 4th season while undergoing recovery after that he get a private detox room in Sacramento ordered by producers, who tied to help him.

According to police, cause of death was not yet determined and there appears to be no evidence of foul play.  I believe the same statement has been issued for stars like Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse. Will update this post when more information is made available.

Such sad news to hear after enjoying Despicable Me 2 with my kids just a few hours ago.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Corey’s family and friends.  It is quite a loss to lose someone so young with still so much potential  and life ahead of him.
