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.

  4. 104

    Wow, I really thought and hoped he was finally on the right track with Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy and a great team of people behind him he was going to be able to overcome his demons better than most who do not have such support. A dark cloud will be shadowing Glee and it's Cast and Crew involved. R.I.P Cory, your finally at peace now, those demons are gone and they did not win!

    One of the only reasons that I still watched "Glee" was the hope that after rehab Cory would be back on the show…
    As much as I like the new cast and their covers are still amazing, with Cory gone the want to watch it has lessened.
    RIP Cory </3

    This is so shocking. Such a beautiful kid. Wow. Just wow.



  16. 116

    Oh my gosh this can't be real. We all know it is but he's suck a loss to us all.

    119

    Why do they always make it out that they were such a good soul and so kind when they were simply a drug addict who od'd? He wasn't taken too soon, he drugged himself to death… that's called suicide.

    Re: shelley
    Where can i watch it??

  21. Slutty Mary says – reply to this


    121

    Is anyone surprised another rich, overpaid, overprivileged actor OD's on drugs? I'm sure a large part of the sentiment comes from his 'clean' lifestyle as a character on glee. If he played a villain, there wouldn't be nearly as much outcry.



  22. 122

    Quite shocked to see this. Sad… RIP

    123

    Re: Slutty Mary – Just because someone is a drug addict doesn't automatically make them a bad person. There are people who have issues but are still good people. He just died, show at least a little compassion and respect at least for his family.

    Re: Luke – There is only so much you can do for someone. They need to be willing to make the changes themselves. No matter how much you try to convince them, it really boils down to their own will power. He went to rehab, and then left. Probably convinced everyone that he was ok. But he obviously wasn't really 100% ok. He was a 30 year old man. You can't stand guard by him 24/7, months on end, to make sure that he never ever takes drugs. You would have to be watching his every move. The whole thing is unfortunate.

    Re: Bob – THANK YOU!!!! I feel bad for his family and friends, but that's it. "Oh, it's a tragedy." No…what's happening in Syria is a tragedy. This is some drugged-up moron. Jeez. If only we had even a few examples from the past that we could use to show celebrities, "celebs", and these karaoke singers just how bad drugs are. Oh, wait…that's right.

    You'd think people would be smarter in this day and age, but nope.

    When I first heard this news I automatically thought it was a rumor. I was shocked when I found out it might be true…. I've been watching glee since forever, and I just can't believe what I am hearing right now. Glee will definitely never be the same. Still processing this news, but my heart goes out to his family & lea Michele. Can't imagine what they're feeling. So sad.

  42. 142

    Re: Slutty Mary – There's a saying in my country; "The fish dies trough the mouth" Never judge somebody for the choices he or she made. You have a long way to go, and you never know where a bad decision will take you, what will do to you, or those you love. You are not exempt of mistakes, and you don't know what the future holds. You and him are the same, equally vulnerable to bad choices. Be silent, think before you write or talk and respect those who are suffering right now. Just because he had an addiction, was rich or famous, doesn't mean he is less worthy of living.
    I know you are a troll and I must not feed you, but well…I was feeling daring.

    153

    This is so sad - but to all the people saying he was taken too soon? Wake up!

    He was not taken - he did this to himself! Don't give me any crap about addiction, blah blah blah either! If he didn't start using drugs in the first place, he would still be here! It is his own fault - no one else! It was his CHOICE to start! Don't blame 'fame' either, because he wanted to be famous! There are soooo many people who are famous & don't go off the rails!! These young people have no one to blame but themselves!



  54. 154

    I'm in utter shock by this news, You will be miss Cory. Thanks so much for the great memories, Rest in Peace. My prayers are with his family, found his brother Shaun here

    157

    He was so young. I never watched Glee, but it's sad when someone so young dies.



  58. 158

    This is very sad. I had the pleasure of meeting him a couple years ago at the mall. After greeting him and taking a picture I went on with my shopping. He saw me later in another store and came back over to me and my friend to keep chatting with us & talked to us for about 30 minutes. What celebrity does that? He was so friendly and personable, you felt like you were just hanging out with a friend.

    Re: Luke – Oh shut up. He was supposed to get married to Leah Michelle in two weeks. It only takes one day, one relapse, to die. No one can predict when that day would be. It's not like he was running around in a hot mess like Nick Stahl or Edward Furlong.

    I will ALWAYS be an ignorant person so I know he's dead but my ignorance is saying he's not and I can't control my ignorance. He was definitely that character you fall for and the guy. I'll always remember him as finn or the guy that was killed in supernatural. I can't believe this. He isn't dead. (Ignorance talking)
