Cory Monteith Cause of Death Revealed
A cocktail of heroin and alcohol was involved, as those were among the substances found in his body, an autopsy and toxicity screening revealed, according to E!
Monteith had battled addiction multiple times in his life. He most recently checked into rehab in the spring to deal with the problem. Sadly, it appears as though the star, who played Finn Hudson on the FOX series, was unable to overcome those demons, as he overdosed.
At least this information should help to provide some closure or some sense of relief for his family, friends and fans who were left wondering what happened to the actor.
We will report more details about Monteith's autopsy and its findings as they become available.
