Cory Monteith died of mixed drug and alcohol toxicity

Although it was reported that the autopsy results for actor Cory Monteith have been classified as “inconclusive,” the British Columbia Coroners Service announced this afternoon that the Glee star died of mixed drug and alcohol toxicity, with heroin being the main drug among the substances found in his body. In an interview with Global News yesterday, the actor’s cousin, Richard Monteith, asked the public not to let the autopsy and toxicology results influence their judgment. “His life was full of beautiful stories, triumphs, failures and successes that it does not matter what his problems were,” said Richard. He added: “It matters how many lives he changed and that he was genuine.” ~Alfonso Espina

    When we find out a celeb has died from drugs it often changes our opinions about them negatively, but have to say he is the first that I do not think any different about despite how he died. Still seems like a good respectable person that cared about people around him, and did try and seek help in the past for his drug problems. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to fully avoid this tragedy, but there is no loss of respect for him as a person.

    Cory was a really nice guy. Not only was he a great actor he also had did charity work. This doesn’t change my impression or have less respect for him. No one knows what kind of place he was in or what he was feeling. To keep all that hurt inside by himself must be lonely. Giving up a great front when he is in front of the cameras and his fan must have been very hard for him. Very sad. Wished that someone was there for him or had someone to talk to at that moment. Those that post negative comments probably have never lost a loved one. It’s just wrong to make jokes on someones death. It’s the worst pain that a person can feel. I would not wish it on anyone. My thoughts are with his family and friends. He will be loved, always. RIP Cory Monteith.
