It seems like just yesterday I was on the red carpet at the ‘Glee 3D Concert Movie’ Premiere in Los Angeles reporting for Celebuzz with my fellow intern Diana, waiting to see one of my celebrity crushes Mr. Cory Monteith. I didn’t know if it was his perfectly quaffed hair or how beautiful he looked in person but he had my heart fluttering the moment I saw him step out of his car.
So once I heard about him passing away I’m sure you can only imagine how stunned and heartbroken I was.
I wish I could say it wasn’t so… but it is (TEAR).
Here’s what I know so far:
The 31-year-old was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver, Canada after missing his check-out time Saturday July 13.
Vancouver police confirmed this tragic information saying, There were others with Mr. Monteith in his room earlier last night [July 12], but video and fob key entries show him returning to his room by himself in the early morning hours and we believe he was alone when he died. When he missed his check-out time, staff went to the room at noon and found his body.”
Monteith is said to have been deceased for quite a few hours before his body was discovered, which makes it even worse.
Although an official cause of death has yet to be determined, some believe drugs may be behind this tragic loss.
I’m sure more details will be coming our way within the next few days.
For now… thoughts and prayers go out to Cory’s family and friends as well as my fellow gleeks out there!
