Monteith, 31, originally from Calgary had come forward to discuss his “substance addiction” issues from earlier in his life, and how he was “lucky to be alive” after his mother and friends staged an intervention to force him into rehab. Monteith had just finished another round of treatment at a treatment centre on April 26th, 2013.
He was found alone in his hotel room after he missed his check-out time.
He was dating Glee star Lea Michele (Rachel Berry) at the time of his death.
BREAKING NEWS: The cause of death has been revealed and the coroner revealed that Monteith died after taking a deadly mix of heroin and alcohol.
This is yet another example of how difficult it is to kick the habit of using drugs, which is why kids should never start!
It’s okay to want to be cool but when drugs and alcohol are involved, it’s okay not to be cool and be alive. Monteith’s accidental death has devastated his fiancé Lea Michele and he threw away a promising career. Sad.
As a fan of the show, his character will be missed.
Lea and Cory were last on Twitter on July 12th.
