Glee star Cory Monteith (Finn Hudson) found dead in Canada hotel

Glee star Cory Monteith has been found dead in his hotel room in Canada.

His body was discovered at Vancouver’s Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel just after noon on Saturday after he failed to check out.

Police believe he was alone, and have ruled out foul play.

Monteith, 31, was best known for playing Finn Hudson in the popular musical comedy series Glee. He was treated for drug addiction in April, and had a history of substance-abuse.

Doug LePard, the acting chief of Vancouver Police, said: “As was the case in countless homes, I watched Glee regularly with my daughters, and I know there will be shock and sadness in many households with the news of his tragic death.

“Mr Monteith checked into the hotel on July 6 and was due to check out of the room (on Saturday).

“There were others with Mr Monteith in his room earlier, but video and fob key entries show him returning to his room by himself in the early morning hours and we believe he was alone when he died.”

A post-mortem examination will take place on Monday.
