According to a statement from Vancouver Police, "Mr. Monteith checked into the hotel on July 6th and was due to check out of the room today. There were others with Mr. Monteith in his room earlier last night, 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."
Cory, who played original cast member Finn Hudson on the popular Fox series, had spent a brief period in rehab in April of this year (he had also been in rehab when he was just 19). Since leaving rehab, he had spent time traveling with his girlfriend Lea Michele and appeared to be doing well.
We are shocked and saddened. We truly hoped it was an internet hoax when we heard the news. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Cory's family and friends.
