Cory Monteith

So, so sad. Cory Monteith, the beloved actor who played Finn Hudson on Glee, passed away at the young age of 31. Monteith’s body was discovered in his Vancouver hotel room on July 13 after he missed his check out. The cause of death is unknown, but foul play is not suspected. "We are so saddened to confirm that the reports on the death of Cory Monteith are accurate," his rep said in a statement. "We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss." The actor was released from rehab for substance abuse in April and had a history of drug use. The actor’s girlfriend of over a year, Lea Michele, has been silent following the news of his death. Her rep released a statement to E! News: "We ask that everyone kindly respect Lea's privacy during this devastating time. Thank you." An autopsy is scheduled for Monday, July 15.
