I read over hour ago on Twitter that Cory died and I thought it was one of those hoaxes, but then the Vancouver PD held a press conference and confirmed he was found dead in a room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel around noon today. USA Today says that Cory checked in on July 6th and he was supposed to check out today. When he didn’t, the hotel staff checked on him and found him already dead. The police say that he went out with friends last night and came back to his hotel room by himself early this morning. It’s been reported, but not confirmed, that he died of a drug overdose. There will be an autopsy on Monday. Cory’s publicist released this statement:
“We are so saddened to confirm that the reports on the death of Cory Monteith are accurate. We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss.”
Where is there to say? This is a whole lot of WTF and a lot of sad.
Rest in peace, Cory.
