Police: Canadian Actor Cory Monteith, Star Of Hit Show “Glee,” Found Dead In City Hotel

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — One of the stars of the hit TV show “Glee” has been found dead in a Canadian hotel. Cory Monteith played Finn Hudson on the series about a high school glee club. His lifeless body was discovered in his room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia. Monteith, who was 31, faced addiction struggles so fierce that he once said he was lucky to be alive. He had a history of addiction and checked himself into a treatment facility just last April.

The “Glee” co-star is being remembered by his producers as an exceptional performer “and an even more exceptional person.”
