Cory Allan Michael Monteith, most known for his role as Finn Hudson on “Glee,” was found dead Saturday in a Vancouver hotel room. He was only 31.
He was discovered at the Fairmont Pacific rim Hotel around noon, after he failed to check out. Paramedics declared him dead on the scene.
The authorities said there appeared to be no foul play. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
“…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,” acting police chief Doug 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.”
Monteith returned from rehab in March, but appeared to be healthy and happy last month.
