Cory Monteith's Cause Of Death Revealed

An autopsy for Glee star Cory Monteith has been completed. Monteith passed away on Saturday.

TMZ exclusively reports:

Cory Monteith died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol ... this according to Canadian authorities. The British Columbia Coroners Service says an autopsy and toxicological analysis show that the 31-year-old "Glee" star died on from a "mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol."

Monteith's body was discovered by staffers at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver, Canada on July 13.

Monteith had struggled with addiction for years and had been to rehab earlier this year. Monteith had said he began struggling with drugs and alcohol as a young teenager.


We hope the news will somehow help his family and friends to process and move forward.

I have just Googled Heath Ledger's death.  According to the results of this search, he died from an "accidental overdose of prescription drugs".  Regardless of how he died, he is still missed after all these years.

Both Cory and Heath Ledger were victims of their Demons.  I will never forget either of them.

Heath Ledger didn't OD on drugs. He had an allergic reaction to a medication a doctor put him on. Everyone jumped to one conclusion before the autopsy results were in. He went into anaphylaxis after taking a prescription medication to which he was allergic.

Guess this wasn't unexpected but it's still very sad. From everything I've heard or read, Cory seemed like a pretty chill guy who had talent, friends and a bright future ahead of him. You didn't see him in the tabloids, raising hell. Instead, you'd see him support organizations or lend his name to issues important to him.

Addiction is a terrible thing and it breaks my heart knowing it took away a good guy who was way too young to die.

Even though I hadn't watched much of "Glee" past its first season, I'll always smile at the memory of the jock who just wanted to sing. Even though I was long past high school at the time, I still identified with Finn.

RIP, Cory.
