'Glee' fans turn to social media to mourn show's star
VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Police said Cory Monteith, the star of the hit show "Glee," was found dead in a hotel room Saturday. Minutes after the news was posted to the internet, fans took to the television program's Facebook page to leave an ever expanding list of sympathy.
"I can't believe this. Rest in Peace Cory we love you," a user by the name of Lisa posted. Others wrote things like "R.I.P" and "you will be missed."
"Let's pray for his soul," one person from the Philippines wrote.
The number of people posting on the fan page were increasing by the minute. Ironically, a post from producers next to the area for fans to leave comments discussed the premiere of the show's next season, slated for September 19.
Monteith, 31, played Finn Hudson on the program.
CNN reported early Sunday morning police said foul play was ruled out but a cause of death was not immediately apparent. An autopsy will be conducted Monday.
Workers at the hotel where he was staying found his body when he missed checkout.
Police said he had several people visiting Friday night but was alone in his room prior to his death.
In April, Monteith checked into a drug addiction facility. Previously, he told reporters he struggled with substance abuse.
