Sadly one of our favorite Glee members has passed away, Cory Monteith (Finn Hudson on Glee) . Cory Monteith, aged 31, was found in his hotel room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver around noon on Saturday sadly gone.
Staff of the hotel went to check on him when he hadn’t come down to check out.
News is he was “clearly deceased” when police arrived. TMZ reported that it was stated by the police ”he was in the room last night with some friends before the group hit the town … and he came back early this morning alone”.
No foul play is suspected … and cops say “it was not immediately apparent” what caused his death. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.”
“On behalf of the Vancouver Police, I want to pass on our condolences to the family, friends, castmates and millions of fans of Mr. Monteith,” acting chief Doug LePard 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.”
I think the most ironic detail about this incident is that the last time I reported back in April, Cory was heading into rehab to treat his drug addiction. We all thought he was going to be okay.
This has been one of the hardest events to process because at first it just didn’t make sense. Cory was so young and he was working on fixing his mistakes, it doesn’t seem fair.
As soon as the event was confirmed I thought about Lea. Lea Michele and Cory Monteith were planning a great life ahead of themselves together.
“I want to get married and have children and live happily ever after. That’s important to me.”
It’s hard to believe such an incredible journey of such a talented performer and actor has ended.
Gleeks everywhere have been given strength too by the trending hashtag on Twitter #StayStrongGleeksFromDirectioners. Many celebrities and YouTube stars have sent out their condolences and have rethought about how lucky they are to have such an incredible fan base.
YouTuber and Radio Personality, Ricardo Ordieres stated on his Twitter: “In times like these always remind your friends and loved ones how much you love and appreciate them… I love all of you so much.”
Entertainment guru, Perez Hilton stated on his Twitter: “One of his last Tweets. RT
@CoryMonteith sending out big love to everyone. thank you for the continued support! It means the world to me! ” and “#LOVE”
All in all this has been a very emotional event. Our team here at Confessed Gleeks send out our sympathy and condolences to everyone who was ever known Cory or has been involved with his life. He leaves behind many of his great cast mates and crew of Glee and friends, his mother, who raised him by herself, his father and brother Shaun. Please be respectable and aid them all with privacy during this hard time.
But lastly I would like to say thank you. Thank you Cory for the lessons you have taught the Gleeks around the world, that it is ‘okay to be yourself and to pursue other interests as Finn did with Glee and football. It doesn’t matter what people think of you’.
“I don’t want kids to think it’s okay to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too, but for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it”.
Cory was such a genuinely nice guy and to have him gone is heartbreaking but he taught us many valuable life lessons.
We will miss you Cory.
But Thank You.
