Since 31-year old dudes who recite lines for a living don't usually drop dead for no reason, the official cause of death of Cory Monteith is the least surprising official cause of death since the hoodie. Us Weekly reports:
Cory Monteith died of an accidental drug and alcohol overdose, British Columbia Coroners Service confirmed Tuesday, July 16 in a statement. Found dead at age 31 at his hotel room this past Saturday, the Glee actor "died of a mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol," the press release reveals, citing an autopsy and toxicological testing. "There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith's death was anything other than a most-tragic accident," the report continues. "Mr. Monteith's family has been made aware of the circumstances surrounding the death. On behalf of family members, the BC Coroners Service asks that the media respect their privacy at this difficult time."
I'm not going to sit here and say an addict who overdoes a "most-tragic accident", because well, it's not. Unless he slipped and fell in a pile of heroin then got up slid into a pool of Jack Daniels without a life raft, let's not pretend he didn't know exactly what he was doing. Which I assume was trying to find out the easiest way to break up with Lea Michelle.
