Canadian actor Cory Monteith, one of the stars of the hit American high-school TV show Glee who played the character of “Finn”, has been found dead at a waterfront Vancouver hotel.
Mr Monteith, 31, was found dead on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel just after noon on Saturday, when he missed his check out time. Police said there were no signs of foul play and the cause of death was not immediately apparent.
Cory – who completed a stint of rehab in April for substance addiction – was last pictured with his girlfriend Lea Michele just last month.
The news was confirmed by Vancouver Police at a press conference on Saturday night.
Medical examiners will conduct an autopsy on Monday.
