Coroner: Cory Monteith died of heroin, alcohol overdose

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — "Glee" actor Cory Monteith died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia coroner's office said Tuesday.

"There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith's death was anything other than a most tragic accident," the office said in a statement.

The 31-year-old was found dead in his Vancouver, British Columbia, hotel room on Saturday, after he didn't check out on time. He was believed to be alone when he died.

I'm really surprised they got the results so quickly, in the states those types of things take weeks to get back.

I also want to add that I truly don't understand how young people are getting involved in herion.  There is just so much we know about the drug and the horrible cost of it's use.  I just don't understand how that even is still "in fashion".

I don't think the show can survive his death. His character was the heart and soul.

I'm not terribly shocked. They tend to be far more efficient at processing in Canada than they are here. Also, they don't have the huge backlog that we do, because Canada just doesn't have the same high crime rate.
