It’s forever a sad day when a someone with, seemingly, their whole life ahead of them is gone too soon. Cory Monteith, who is best known as ‘Finn’ in the hit musical TV series ‘Glee’ was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room, he was 31-years-old.
Popular Monteith, 31, who had recently completed a stint in rehab for drug addiction, was found by staff at the Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Saturday afternoon, officials said.
Millions of fans knew him as high school heartthrob turned teacher Finn Hudson — a show regular since 2009. In real life he has battled addiction issues, which close friend and co-star Dot Jones puts down to a troubled childhood.
Monteith, who was dating the “Glee” leading actress Lea Michele for more than a year, had been staying at the hotel since July 6. Just a few hours before his death, the star tweeted about watching TV movie “Sharknado,” which was a huge hit on the Syfy network.
Vancouver cops confirmed the young star’s death. Staff discovered his body after he missed his checkout time.
Police sources suspect his death was not the result of foul play.
Ugh! This is by far a girlfriend, family and friend’s worst nightmare. RIP Cory.
