Cory Monteith - Cory Monteith dies aged 31

Cory Monteith has died at the age of 31.

The 'Glee' actor was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver, Canada yesterday (13.07.13) and - while there are no implications of foul play - no cause of death has been confirmed yet.

Cory's publicist Melissa Kates said: ''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 star - who played Finn Hudson in the musical drama - was discovered in his room by hotel staff after he failed to check out at the designated time.

In a statement, Acting Chief Doug LePard commented: ''Shortly after noon today, the Vancouver Police received a call from the BC Ambulance Service regarding a sudden death in a room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel at 1038 Canada Place in downtown Vancouver.

''The deceased has been identified as 31-year-old actor Cory Monteith, who achieved great fame on the popular TV series 'Glee'.''

Meanwhile 20th Century Fox and Fox Broadcasting Company - the executive producers for the show - paid tribute to an ''exceptional talent.''

They added: ''We are deeply saddened by this tragic news. Cory was an exceptional talent and an even more exceptional person.

He was a true joy to work with and we will all miss him tremendously. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.''

Cory, who had been dating his co-star Lea Michele, was in rehab for drug addiction as recently as April.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday (15.07.13) and coroner Lisa Lapointe stated: ''We do not have a great deal of information as to cause of death.''
