Report: Cory Monteith died of heroin and alcohol overdose
TMZ.com is reporting that Cory Monteith died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol.
Canadian authorities said on Monday they would perform an autopsy including toxicology tests to determine the cause of death of actor Cory Monteith, the 31-year-old heartthrob of Fox’s musical-comedy television series “Glee” who was found dead on Saturday in a Vancouver hotel room.
Although the British Columbia Coroners Service said the results will not be available for several days, it seems as though it has been expedited due to public interest.
“We do understand there’s a lot of public interest in this case and we will try to get it done in as good a time as we can without compromising the integrity of the investigation,” said Barbara McLintock, a spokeswoman for the Coroners Service.
