Death: July 2013

Cory Monteith’s death this past summer was especially shocking. He was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver with two empty bottles of champagne and “a spoon with drug residue and a used hypodermic needle.” Monteith’s official cause of death was listed as “mixed drug toxicity, involving intravenous heroin use combined with the ingestion of alcohol.” The coroner suggested that Monteith’s tolerance for heroin may have been lower than usual because he had stopped using it after a rehab stint last April.
