Fox television show star Cory Monteith was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room this Saturday afternoon. This is a very bad news, as one of the stars of Glee has passed away, and he was only 31.
Police Chief Doug LePard confirmed that his body was found in his room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel after midday. He had checked into the hotel July 6 and was due to check out Saturday. Staff went to Monteith's room when they realized that he had missed his check-out time.
"We do not have a great deal of information as to cause of death," Coroner Lisa Lapointe said.
"On behalf of the Vancouver Police, I want to pass on our condolences to the family, friends, castmates and millions of fans of Mr. Monteith," LePard said in a statement. "As was the case in countless homes, I watched Glee regularly with my daughters, and I know there will be shock and sadness in many households with the news of his tragic death."
Cory Monteith had just shot photos to for the fifth season of "Glee" with his girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele last month.
