Cory Monteith Died From Heroin Overdose

The shocking death of Glee actor Cory Monteith's was caused by a combination of heroin and alcohol.  

"Glee" actor Cory Monteith, who had struggled for years with substance abuse and once said he was lucky to be alive, died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia coroner's office said Tuesday.
"There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith's death was anything other than a most tragic accident," the office said in a statement.
The 31-year-old was found dead in his Vancouver, British Columbia, hotel room on Saturday after he didn't check out on time. He was believed to be alone when he died. Hotel video and electronic records indicate he returned to his room by himself early Saturday.
At a briefing Tuesday afternoon, police said they believe Monteith had been dead for several hours before he was found. They said the coroner's report didn't indicate the levels of heroin or alcohol in his system. They ruled out foul play.
"Our belief is that when he took the heroin he was alone," said Vancouver Police Department spokesman Brian Montague. He added: "There was evidence in the room that was consistent with a drug overdose. We're not providing exactly what we found at the scene."
Police said it was too early for the coroner's office to conclude whether Monteith was the victim of a bad batch of heroin, which turns up from time to time in Vancouver.

his old girlfriend says she never saw any drug use. Very sad they left him alone if he was a junkie. I wonder if the hotel has video footage of when he last walked into his room

'cuz this is America. Only white america cares about white people's triumphs and tragedies.

He was a hollyweird starlet so I don't see how this is a "tragedy" either. I thought it's just BAU.
