Glee star and Lea Michele's kinda sorta boyfriend, Cory Monteith, 31, was found dead in a Canadian hotel room Saturday night. He got out of rehab on April 26th. Us Weekly reports:
Cory Monteith's life was cut tragically short on Saturday, July 13. The Glee star, who celebrated his 31st birthday on May 11, was found dead in a hotel room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver, Canada, police announced in a press conference. According to Vancouver PD, emergency personnel arrived at the hotel shortly after noon, at which point Monteith was pronounced dead on the scene by paramedics. The coroner is investigating cause of death. Foul play is not suspected. "We are so saddened to confirm that the reports on the death of Cory Monteith are accurate," the actor's rep said in a statement to Us Weekly shortly after news broke of the tragedy. "We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss."
There's been lots of speculation as to the cause of Cory Monteith's death, but I think it's important that we don't jump to conclusions and let law enforcement investigate and complete their process and due dilliegence. But most importantly, we shouldn't bring race into this that might harm American and Canadian hotel relations that this country has spent years trying to cultivate. Maybe the Canadian hotel was trying to defend itself.
