Cory Monteith - Lea Michele visits hotel where Cory died

Lea Michele has made a pilgrimage to the hotel where her boyfriend, Cory Monteith, died.

The devastated 'Glee' star made her first public outing since 31-year-old Cory was found dead from a heroin and alcohol overdose last weekend to the Vancouver hotel where he passed away.

According to an eyewitness, Lea, 26, was ''out of her mind'' with grief when she stopped at a makeshift memorial to the star outside the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel.

Rik Feydik, who claims to be a friend of Cory's, spotted Lea about an hour after the family left the body at the hospital.

He told RadarOnline.com: ''Lea was in the back seat of one of the vehicles sitting between two bodyguards.

''She was wearing her signature huge black shades.

''Lea never got out of the vehicle but she stayed parked in in front of the memorial for five to seven minutes.''

When Rik approached the cars they raced off. He added: ''They were driving crazy.''

Rik, a photographer who claims to have done photoshoots with Cory in the past, said he had become ''distant'' in recent months.

He explained: ''He'd become a little more evasive with me and now I think I know why.''

Rik claims he even met up with Cory during his last fatal visit home.

He said: ''Cory asked me to give him some space. He didn't want a lot of people to know he was up there. So that's what I did. Now I'm wishing I didn't.''

Cory was cremated on Tuesday in a private ceremony attended by most of his family and Lea.

He had been battling addictions most of his life but had voluntarily entered rehab in April and was thought to be clean and sober.

However it has since emerged Cory was living a ''double life'' as a hard-working actor in Los Angeles but mixing with a bad crowd in Vancouver.
