Cory Monteith Autopsy Results

JUST IN: 'Glee' actor Cory Monteith died from lethal mixture of alcohol and heroin, coroner says.


Cory Monteith, whose body was found in a Vancouver hotel room over the weekend, died of a "mixed drug toxicity" of heroin and alcohol, authorities say.

"At this point there is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith's death was anything other than a most-tragic accident," the BC Coroners Service says in a statement released Tuesday.

The cause of the Glee star's death at age 31 was determined by an autopsy and toxicology tests. An investigation continues.

"Mr. Monteith's family has been made aware of the circumstances surrounding the death," the Coroners Service says. "On behalf of family members, the BC Coroners Service asks that the media respect their privacy at this difficult time."

The Canadian native completed a month-long stint in a treatment facility for substance addiction in April and had been open about his lifelong struggles with substance abuse.

It's still unclear what happened after Monteith arrived in Canada and checked into the Fairmont Pacific Rim on July 6. He and his manager dined on Thursday night with Maureen Webb, the co-founder of Project Limelight Society, who said the actor "looked so good, so healthy."

Police say that the next night, Monteith and three unidentified people left his hotel room and that the actor returned alone at about 2:15 a.m. Saturday. A hotel staff person found his body shortly after noon when Monteith didn't check out.

Re: Cory Monteith Autopsy Results

His cousin asked people not to judge him and not to focus too much on the coroners report. Here's an excerpt from the interview:

In an emotional interview, his cousin told Global News that he didn't see Cory's relapse coming. “As guys, we didn’t really talk too much about problems. But for me, anyways, that’s not the focus. People are gonna focus on this last chapter as a bad thing," he said. "Don’t use the last chapter do judge someone’s life … Because his life is full of beautiful stories and failures and successes. It doesn’t matter about his problems. It matters about the lives he changed. It matters that he was genuine.”

This is so heartbreaking and touching. And I agree. He was open about his struggles, he tried to get help. In the end he couldn't overcome his addiction but I would hope he isn't judged solely based on how he died.

Wow!!! This just made me so sad....

It is so terrible that he couldn't beat these demons. It truly seemed like he wanted to overcome them by being so open about his addiction and rehab stints. He just couldn't shut them out....hopefully he is at peace now.

I read one article where it quoted him as saying that at one point, he used anything and everything he could get his hands on. The heroin still caught me by surprise though.

Re: Cory Monteith Autopsy Results

I knew it was heroin. That is how it goes with heroin.

Most people who die from heroin (not all) die after they try to get sober. You build up a tolerance to it and can take more and more. When you get sober and start again, you start at the amount you were previously using. Your body can't handle it and it kills you.

Such an awful, awful drug. Tragic. It's a very real problem in our area of the state and all over.

Ita! Its very real..I know many of people who are addicts. Some who have turned their life around and are doing great! But also have a family member currently using it. My uncle only 34 years old is a herroin addict. He became addicted to Oxycontin after having shoulder surgery. After that it was Heroin. He has been to jail, detox, and rehab so many times. They only keep u in rehab so long and then he comes back out and does it again. It is sad. It has caused many family problems. This drug is EVIL! It is real and it is EVERYWHERE! I have seen people using in their cars in Sayville, Centereach, Holbrook. I have also seen needles in parking lots. It makes me sad and I feel Herion has gotten worse since the recent changes with prescription pills. Its harder to get the pills so Heroin is their easiest way to get high. I can only hope i teach my children about it and let them understnad the consequences of this drug. It scares the crap out of me and i hope it scares my children. Chat Icon

Re: Cory Monteith Autopsy Results

I find it shocking that heroin is so common...

Growing up I knew plenty of people who tried/dabbled in all sorts of drugs but I have never known of anyone using heroin.

Heroin always seemed so EXTREME to me, like who sticks themselves with a needle Chat Icon so sad and scary.

I must be naive because I find it shocking as well. I knew people who smoked pot on occasion but never anything harder than that. It's scary to hear how prevalent it is.

I don't judge him at all. He was robbed of his life and it's a damn shame. Chat Icon

Drugs are evil. This is one of my worst fears for my children. And no one is truly "safe" from this. Especially around here on LI.

Me too until my DH ( a cop) and many others I know would tell me about it.

It is extreme but needles are not the only way to get the high now. its a cheap drug too so its easy to get and again, the high is apparently the best out there and then it comes with an instant addiaction.

They said he was doing better, but heroin is the worst for people who come out of rehab. People think that they can do it only "one more time" and their bodies go into shock. So sad.

There was a whole Newsday article on heroin a few weeks ago with staggering numbers of users in Nassau and Suffolk with Suffolk being 2-3 times higher than Nassau and both counties have seen usage increase by 2-3 times in the past 3 years. They were saying that this is due to so many factors. Doctors were handing out prescriptions for pain meds a few years ago like candy. People were legally taking these for legit reasons and not really needing as much as they did or were not being monitored and then they got hooked. They were able to legally keep on the drugs because some doctors are shady and knew they were addicted but given the right dollar amount still wrote prescriptions. A dr in Massapequa was arrested as well as several others on the island. Laws started changing making it harder to get the drugs from the dr, buying it on the streets was getting expensive, pharmacy crimes went up so there were more crackdowns to protect against those so they turned to heroin. It's cheaper and easier to get. It no longer has the same stigma it used to have in the 70's and 80's where the only people you would hear of doing heroin were homeless crackheads shooting up. Now lower, middle and upper class women/men/teens/white/black/Hispanic/Asian people are doing it. Professionals, white collar, blue collar, ANYONE is doing it. It's not so "shameful" and there are more ways to do it now then shooting it up with most saw as gross and dirty.

This scares me so much being a mother. There is no getting away from this. Ladies on the Massapequa moms group find heroin needles littered all over their south of Merrick neighborhoods, down by the docks in South Amityville you can often find some discarded baggies, sometimes needles. It's running rampant in Rockville Center and Smithtown so much so that they have seminars and what not to educate the parents. There is no getting away from it. All we can do it try our hardest to be the best parents we can be and educate our kids on the dangers of this stuff but I've known some awesome parents do all the "right" things and STILL their kids fall victim to peer pressure. It's scary.

I just saw this article in the DN about a Dean of Students in a Manhattan school being arrested for heroin and other drug use just a little while ago. It really is scary how prevalent drug use seems to be getting Chat Icon Chat Icon

I knew it had to be heroin too, because I read something back when he went to rehab in April that he was going for alcohol and heroin use.
