Cory Monteith: Glee Star Found Dead In Hotel 

Glee star Cory Monteith was found dead at Vancouver's Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel . The 31-year-old’s body was discovered just after noon on Saturday, after he failed to check out.

Police said Monteith was with other people Friday night. An examination of hotel video footage showed him returning to his room alone early Saturday morning. Police believe he was alone when he died. No cause of death was given and no foul play is suspected, police said. Police are questioning the people he was with Friday night.

In March, Monteith voluntarily checked himself into rehab for substance abuse. He previously checked into rehab when he was 19. It was unclear why the British Columbia-native had checked into the Vancouver hotel.

Family, Vancouver police said, have just been informed. He had been deceased for several hours when his body had been discovered.

"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," representatives for the actor told THR in a statement.

Glee executive producers, producers 20th Century Fox Television and Fox Broadcasting Co. said in a statement: "We are deeply saddened by this tragic news. Cory was an exceptional talent and an even more exceptional person. He was a true joy to work with and we will all miss him tremendously. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones."
Monteith has played Finn Hudson, the lovable boy-next door on Glee, since it debuted in 2009.
