The body of the troubled Glee star, Cory Monteith, was discovered in his Vancouver hotel room by the staff. Although there is no foul play suspected, the cause of death is still unconfirmed.
Monteith had recently completed a rehab gig for addiction and was found at the Pacific Rim Hotel Saturday evening. Millions of Glee fans knew him as teacher Finn Hudson on the show since 2009. In real life he has battled addiction issues, which close friend and co-star Dot Jones puts down to a troubled childhood.
The police reviewed the surveillance tapes and confirmed that he was alone when he returned before his death. To actually confirm what the cause of death was, the coroners are going to have to run more extensive tests to make that decision. An autopsy is scheduled to be done this Monday.
While dining with his friends on Friday he seemed to be happy and in good spirits. Most of his friends expected Monteith to recover from his addiction which goes all the way back to childhood-rooted issues.
“A lot get carried away with getting too much money too fast and they are spoiled little brats,” close friend Jones, 49 said. “I am not talking about Cory. He had a rough childhood.”
