According to Vancouver police Monteith had checked in to the Fairmont Pacific Rim on July 6 and was scheduled to check out on Saturday July 13. He was with friends on the Friday and was found dead in his room in the morning that he failed to check out.
Monteith recently completed a stint in rehab for addiction problems which he had publicly admitted to having for some time. The Vancouver police also stated that they do not think that anyone was with him when he passed away.
Monteith became very successful and gained a wide fan base with the start of Glee. He was also dating his co-star Lea Michele.
Monteith was kind of a Cinderella success story coming from a small acting back ground and working as a Wal-Mart greeter and a taxi driver. His was truly as nothing-to-everything story.
My condolences go out to his family, friends and fans.
