Cory was found in his Vancouver hotel room at the Fairmont Pacific Hotel after missing his Saturday morning checkout time. Authorities reported that no foul play was involved, although a cause of death has yet to be determined. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
The actor’s reps told reporters, “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.”
Cory never made a secret of his troubled past and substance abuse problems, and even checked into rehab earlier this year to deal with them. Things seemed to be going well for the actor who was spotted only a month ago smiling widely on the red carpet with girlfriend, Lea Michele.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to Cory’s family, friends and loved ones during this difficult and emotional time. Leave us your favorite Cory memory in the comments below.
