Cory Monteith, died on July 13, 2013. He was 31 years old. What the Autopsy found was heroin and alcohol and that caused his death at the Vancouver Hotel room where he collapses to his death. Reports said that he was battling demons, or could it be the angle of death that he confronted in his hotel room and decided to take away Cory Monteith. Sometime when Heroin and alcohol are mixed together people will often hallucinate. Did the Angel of Death appeared in the room with him? And had a confrontation before he died.
He left behind was his girlfriend and co-star Lea Michelle from “Glee” and close family members.
In an interview with Parade magazine in 2011, he discussed his history of substance abuse as a teen, and in April 2013 he again sought treatment for addiction. Maybe with all the energy and the drugs he has taken the night before he died caused him to his death.
He was the younger son of Ann McGregor, an interior decorator, and Joe Monteith, a military man who served in the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. He had an older brother named Shaun. Monteith’s parents divorced when he was seven years old, and he and his older brother were raised by their mother in Victoria, British Columbia. After the divorce he saw little of his father due to Joe Monteith’s military service, and he had social difficulties at school. From age 13, he used alcohol and marijuana and started being truant from school.
After attending 16 schools, including alternative programs for troubled teens, he dropped out altogether at age 16. By that time, his drug and alcohol dependency had increased and Monteith turned to petty crimes, such as stealing money from friends and family, to fund his addictions. The turning point in Monteith’s life came when his mother and a group of friends staged an intervention when he was 19, and he began attending a rehabilitation program. Monteith stated, “I’m lucky on so many counts. I’m lucky to be alive.” He eventually received his high school diploma in 2011 from an alternative school he attended in his youth in Victoria.
Monteith began his acting career in Vancouver, British Columbia. He played minor roles in Final Destination 3, Whisper, and Deck the Halls. He had a recurring role in Kyle XY. He also made guest appearances in television serials such as Smallville, Supernatural, Flash Gordon, Stargate Atlantis, and Stargate SG-1. In 2005, he appeared in Killer Bash, about a tormented geek’s soul that was taking revenge on his murderer’s children by taking over a girl’s twin body. The following year, he made a brief appearance in Urban Legend: A Bloody Mary. In 2007, he starred in the MTV series Kaya as Gunnar. In April 2010, Monteith was cast in the romantic comedy movie Monte Carlo with Selena Gomez. In August 2010, he co-hosted the Teen Choice Awards. Monteith hosted the Gemini Awards in Toronto on 13 November 2010. In December 2010, it was announced that Monteith would be starring in and co-producing a new untitled workplace-caper comedy for Fox 2000.
Before breaking into show business, Monteith worked various jobs, including Walmart people greeter, taxicab driver, school bus driver, and roofer.
He will be missed from Glee when it appears in the fall of 2013. But his spirit remains at Glee.
