R.I.P. Cory Monteith
CANADIAN actor Cory Monteith, 31-year-old heartthrob of Fox's musical-comedy television series Glee, was found dead on Saturday in his Vancouver hotel room (Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in the city centre) in Canada, police said.
There were no signs of foul play according to Police and paramedics and the cause of death was not immediately apparent, British Columbia Chief Coroner Lisa Lapointe told reporters at a news conference in Vancouver.
Monteith had talked about his problems with substance abuse.
In response to a question about whether Monteith died of a drug overdose, Vancouver Police Department acting chief Doug LePard said he would "not discuss anything that we might have found in the room at this time".
An autopsy was set for Monday.
