Cory Monteith Found Dead In Vancouver

| Filed under: GleeCory Monteith

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.

  12. Jessica says – reply to this


    Hopefully this is an eye opener for some kids out there thinking about doing drugs, and they decide against it bc of all the young people dying…

    Maybe his death won't be in vain, and his passing might've saved a lot of teens and young adults down the road… Bc this is a total shame…

    Cory's DEATH is not a HOAX; the 12-Step RELIGIOUS AA/NA CULT is the HOAX!

    Re: Sarah Sisk – The most awful thing ever???? You stupid bitch. Aside from Glee he was nothing and Glee sucked more than your brother in a Greyhound men's room. Also in a few days no one will give two shits, until Glee does one of their annoying ill-produced tribute episodes with everyone crying and singing out of tune. Save yourself some grief and instead expire your vagina with a hand mirror.

    I really thought this was a twisted hoax at first, but apparently it's real. RIP Cory Monteith. A short well-lived life s better than a long unfulfilled one. You were a phenomenal actor, and i'm still in shock.

  42. Amaretto says – reply to this


    I really loathe people who take opportunities such as this to troll, pass judgment and just generally make cruel remarks.

    I'm sorry you lack the basic human capacity to feel bad that someone died. I'm also sorry you fail so badly at life that you have to resort to trolling to get anyone to even notice you.

    Re: Quinto Bean – man, you must feel like a dick now that you've figured out this is true. Maybe spend less time thinking you're smarter than everyone else while yelling at the internet. Fool.

  46. Michelle says – reply to this


    It's a heartbreaking when we lose young talent like this, RIP Cory. Being from Vancouver myself and watched my own friends fight battles with addiction only to come to Vancouver and be tempted by the rampant availability of drugs in our city. Please if you are fighting a battle with addiction do not come to Vancouver without support. Vancouver hearts are with the Monteith family.

    I still can't believe this :(

  48. Navaal says – reply to this


    This.. is horrible.. How can this be true? Glee won't be the same without him :(

    Why do we continue to mourn people who apparently have it all and throw it away with bad choices?

  82. cerys grandin says – reply to this


    So sad , I never watched glee but bless him,family,friends and the fans x;(

  83. Emily says – reply to this


    I can't believe the tragic news. Such a tragic and premature death. When I turned on the news and saw that he had died I couldn't believe my eyes. He was such an incredible actor and seemed like an amazing man. My love and prayer's go to the family and loved ones of Cory. I don't know how glee could ever work without him. I am filled with sadness and I can't even comprehend how much pain his family is going through. I still don't believe that someone that I watched for the last 3 years is gone. I hope that his family is given privacy and that they have the time to grief. And my love goes out to Lea, I can't even imagine what she is going through at this moment. I dream that no one will ever have to go through this pain of young death again.
    R.I.P Cory Monteith

    Re: jone

    No Jone,
    he was in rehab when he was 19, clean for 10 years and then relapsed one time and shortly after went back to rehab. That was it. No one knows this was drugs yet. Even if it was, who cares. Doesn't mean it's not sad. Oh, all you people with your hilarious comments are so smart and COOL right? You know everything. Must be great to be so cool. Actually, the people with their comments about him being a drug addict so he should know he might die, and that he was rich so he should die. Your all big fucking dorks! At least the guy fought for human rights, and programs to help people get job training and not hand outs from the government, helped out in Oklahoma, helped establish funds for children that are impoverished and other programs to help people. Better human being then the people claiming they are perfect on here and that he was a drug addict so he should be dead. I would rather Cory the "drug addict" be here then you pieces of crap that want to talk about him badly and you people who probably do nothing for anyone but yourselves.

    Holy fuck! Didn't watch the news or get a blog for one day and all this happens. RIP, dude!!!!

    I'm reading all these articles and looking at pictures of the hotel( it was on the website) and just thinking "Ohmygosh Cory died in this hotel" I'm literally crying right now. I have never seen Glee because I thought it would be stupid but the day after he died I went straight to Netflix turned on Season 1 pilot. I love the show. Of course I had to get my self hooked to Glee. Made me more sad. You will always be remembered. Gone but never forgotten. I love you Cory Monteith. My heart goes out to Lea Michele, his family, friends, and the cast of Glee<3 Rest in Paradise Cory<3 It's hard to believe your gone. I can't imagine what his family, friends, and girlfriend are all going through</3
