'Glee' star Cory Monteith found dead

According to the Hollywood Reporter, "Glee" actor Cory Monteith was found dead in Vancouver on Saturday.

The 31-year-old Monteith, who played the character Finn Hudson on the TV series about a high school glee club, was found dead in his room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel on Vancouver's waterfront at about noon Saturday.

Deputy Police Chief Doug Lepard says there is no indication of foul play. Monteith's body was found by hotel staff after he missed his check-out time, Lepard said.

"We do not have a great deal of information as to cause of death," Coroner Lisa Lapointe said.

Lepard said Monteith had been out with people earlier and that those people are being interviewed.

The actor had a long struggle with substance abuse. He checked into a treatment facility voluntarily in March. He also underwent a stint in rehab at age 19.
