“Glee” Star Cory Monteith Found Dead In Hotel Room.

Usually most “Glee” fans are known to have a “pep in their step” and “shine on their behinds,” but most are feeling morose after finding out that Cory Monteith, 31, who played Finn Hudson on the Fox hit TV show was found dead in Vancouver, Canada, hotel room Saturday.

Monteith had been doing bit parts for years until he got the role on “Glee.” He was known by the cast and crew to always be the first one on set, who knew all his lines and greeted every guest star with a sweet smile and a hello.

Vancouver police can’t comment about the cause of death until an autopsy is conducted Monday, but they ruled out foul play. Monteith apparently had several people over to his room at one point Friday night. 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 had problems with alcohol and drugs and had been in and out of several rehabs, admitting he started using drugs at 13 and went to rehab for the first time at 19. His death is believed to be drug related.

If Monteith died from drugs, it will be such a shame. He will become another Hollywood Star whose twinkle was extinguished too soon. It’s so sad to think, that with all the benefits of medicine and health education these days; the things that still kill most people today, famous and often not, is drugs and guns.
