Cory Monteith Is Dead!
By Jethro Nededog
Cory Monteith, who played jock-turned-gleek Finn Hudson on FOX’s musical phenomenon “Glee,”was found dead Saturday at a Vancouver hotel. He was 31.
The Canadian actor’s body was found just after noon at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel, said Vancouver police at a news conference Saturday night. They did not give a cause of death, but said foul play was not suspected.
Monteith had recently finished a stint in rehab for substance abuse, after previously seeking help for addiction at age 19.
He seemed to have turned a corner recently, emerging from rehab and appearing last month with longtime girfriend and “Glee” co-star Lea Michele at a charity ball.
“We ask that everyone kindly respect Lea’s privacy during this devastating time,” a rep for the actress said in a statement Sunday.
