‘Glee’ Star Cory Monteith Died From Mixture Of Heroin And Alcohol
Three days after Glee star Cory Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel, the British Columbia coroner has announced that the actor died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol.
After the completion of an autopsy and toxicological analysis yesterday (July 16), it was revealed that Monteith died of “a mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol.” Police do not suspect foul play and believe the actor died alone.
A release from the coroner stated, “there is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most-tragic accident.”
Monteith, who had struggled with addiction since he was 13, had checked himself into a rehab facility this past April for substance addiction.
