Police Investigation into Cory Monteith's Death Closed
The police investigation into the tragic death of Cory Monteith was closed on Tuesday evening (July 16).
Citing the British Columbia Coroner Service's autopsy report, which concluded the "Glee" actor died from a mixed drug toxicity involving heroin and alcohol, the Vancouver Police Department deemed the cause of death an “accidental overdose."
Speaking with reporters, police constable Brian Montague said, “It was pretty clear that there was no struggle, no evidence of foul play, and that there was evidence in the room that was consistent with drug use.”
Constable Montaugue went on to say that the department believes the 31-year-old took the heroin alone, and that he had been dead for several hours before he was found after missing the check out time at his hotel.
