Coroners: 'Glee' Star Died from Drug Cocktail

Ad Feedback

Actor Corey Monteith, star of the hit TV show "Glee," died of a toxic combination of heroin and alcohol, a report from the British Columbia coroner confirmed.

The 31-year-old actor was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room last Saturday. The report said there is no evidence that his death was "anything other than a most tragic accident."

"Our belief is that when he took the heroin he was alone," Vancouver Police Department spokesman Brian Montague said.

Montague confirmed that "there was evidence in the room that was consistent with a drug overdose."

Monteith had admitted to struggling with drug addiction since he was a teen. As recently as April, he had voluntarily checked into a rehab program for substance abuse.
