Cory Monteith Dead at 31

By Byrne Harrison

Cory Monteith, who shot to fame as Finn on Fox's musical high school series Glee, passed away yesterday in Vancouver.  He was found in his hotel room after missing a Saturday check out.

USA Today reports that his publicist, Melissa Kates, has confirmed his death, saying, "We are so saddened to confirm that the reports on the death of Cory Monteith are accurate. We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss."

The coroner will determine a cause of death, but the actor has been dealing with substance abuse issues for many years, most recently checking himself into treatment center in March.

Tributes are showing up on various social media sites and his friends and fans process the news.
