How did Cory Monteith die? Autopsy and toxicology results are pending in the death of the 'Glee' star, but officials say there's nothing to indicate illegal drug use, despite the rumors of an overdose. Find out how Cory spent his final days. Cory Monteith's cause of death remains unknown, following the autopsy, but authorities say there was nothing to indicate illicit drug use.

More tests will be administered to determine how Cory died--he was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room Saturday after a night out with friends.

While tests have been "fast-tracked," police reveal it could be several days before the results of the toxicology tests come back.

Sgt. Randy Fincham told the AP there's nothing to indicate Cory's death was due to illicit drug use. Foul play was previously ruled out.

The investigation is piecing together Cory's final days--he had dinner with his manager Elena Kirschner and another friend Thursday night, which Elena Kirschner later tweeted about: "Great meal with good friends."

There are reports and pics of Cory hanging with friends in Vancouver and he reportedly was seen Friday night at two clubs, the Roxy and the Queen's Republic Nightclub.

Meanwhile, a clip from Cory's last film, McCanick, is making the rounds. Director Josh C. Waller said of Cory's role as a drug-addicted hustler, "He was like, 'I can do this character. I know this character. I was this character. I have lived elements of this.' He said, 'I was a troubled youth.' "
