According to CNN, Cory Monteith, who played heart throb Finn Hudson in the Fox hit “Glee,” was found dead in a Vancouver, Canada, hotel room Saturday, police said. He was 31.
Vancouver police said the cause of death was not immediately apparent, but they ruled out foul play.
Medical examiners will conduct an autopsy Monday.
Monteith’s body was discovered by staff members at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel after he missed his checkout time, acting Chief Constable Doug LePard told reporters.
Monteith apparently had several people over to his room at one point Friday night, but LePard said Monteith, who had checked in July 6, was seen on hotel surveillance video returning to his room in the early morning hours by himself.
The Twitter-verse has already responded to his death, having two global trending topics of his name and #prayforlea, designed for his fiancee and fellow Glee star Lea Michele. One of the top tweets from Demi Lovato pretty much says it best-
Let’s all remind ourselves that in this time of need to focus on his family and friends and not spend days upon weeks upon months criticizing this man who can’t speak up for himself now. Regardless of how it happened, the world lost a phenomenal talent and was a key player in making one of the best television shows of the past decade. RIP Cory, you will truly be missed by millions of people.
