Cory Monteith from Glee found dead

Vancouver, British Columbia -

31-year-old actor Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson on the popular TV series Glee, was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room around Noon Saturday.

Acting Police Chief Doug Lepard said Monteith checked into the hotel July 6th and was due to check out of the room Saturday.

There were others with Mr. Monteith in his room earlier that night, but video and fob key entries show him returning to his room by himself in the early morning hours and they believe he was alone when he died.

People out with him earlier were being interviewed by Police, but there were no signs of foul play.

When he missed his check-out time, staff went to the room at noon and found his body.

Coroner Lisa Lapointe said they do not have a great deal of information as to cause of death and an autopsy is scheduled Monday.

Monteith had voluntarily entered rehab for substance abuse problems in April.
