GLEE star Cory Monteith Found Dead

Cory Monteith, who played heart throb Finn Hudson in the Fox hit
“Glee,” was found dead in a Vancouver, Canada, hotel room Saturday,
police said. He was 31.

Vancouver police said the cause of death was not immediately apparent, but they ruled out foul play.

Medical examiners will conduct an autopsy Monday.

Monteith’s body was
discovered by staff members at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel after he
missed his checkout time, acting Chief Constable Doug LePard told

Monteith apparently had several people over to his room at one point
Friday night, but LePard said Monteith, who had checked in July 6, was
seen on hotel surveillance video returning to his room in the early
morning hours by himself.

Monteith spent time in rehab this year, checking into a drug addiction treatment facility in late March.

He had been frank about
his struggles with substance abuse, telling Parade magazine in 2011 that
he began using drugs at 13, and by 19 went into rehab after his mother
and friends intervened.

“I had several
interactions with him yesterday where he said that he was doing
amazing,” Shankman said. “He even said I am feeling fantastic. I’m like
everybody else, really devastated and confused by what happened.”
