Cory Monteith Found Dead In Vancouver

glee cory monteith has reportedly died vancouver

Our hearts are so heavy with so much grief.

It has been confirmed that this afternoon, Glee star Cory Monteith was found dead at the Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancover.

The Vancouver police held a press conference moments ago, confirmed the young star's death. They went on to further explain that around noon this afternoon, after Cory missed his checkout time, hotel staff went up to his room to investigate. It was then that Cory was found deceased, apparently for several hours.

Police responded within minutes of receiving a call from the BC Ambulance Service regarding a sudden death in a room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel at 1038 Canada Place in downtown Vancouver.

Monteith's family was only notified of his passing an hour before the press conference was held at 10:30 PM Pacific time Saturday night.

The police have reviewed hotel video tapes and have confirmed that Cory was alone when he returned to his room last night. Upon further investigation of the scene, they confirmed that his death was not caused by foul play. As for the actual cause of death, the coroner announced that her department will need to run further tests to know for sure.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

"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's publicist, Melissa Kates, said in an e-mail of his passing.

Monteith had checked in to the Fairmont Pacific Rim on July 6th. Police HAVE already spoken to some of the people he had in his room the days leading up to his death.

Cory had openly spoken about his addiction issues as a teenager. He told Parade magazine in 2011 that he began using drugs at 13, and by 19 went into rehab after his mother and friends intervened. He suffered a relapse earlier this year and checked himself into rehab again in April.

Vancouver police would not confirm yet whether any drug paraphernalia was found in his room.

More details should be available in the next few days.

Glee executive producers, producers 20th Century Fox Television and Fox Broadcasting Co. said in a statement: "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."

To his family and friends and the fans who feel this loss as much as we do, we share our whole-hearted condolences. Losing someone like Cory, someone so full of love and talent, someone who was taken so much too soon, is a heavy blow for us all.

He will be truly and utterly missed.

    Re: press conference
    sorry I guess links don't paste into comments.

    They said he died alone, he had been dead for hours before they found him.
    He checked into the hotel with friends yesterday (didn't say who) and was supposed to check out today. Family was informed just before the press conference.
