He was found in his hotel room in Vancouver after not checking out; employes went to check his room. He was found there, alone, and had been deceased for what seemed a few hours. An autopsy will be given tomorrow, but full details (like tests for drugs, etc) will not be available for a week or so. He was 31 years old.
I want to send my thoughts and prayers to his family, friends, castmates, and girlfriend, Lea Michele. I can't imagine what they are going through right now. I can't....
I really don't know what to think. This is the first time I have cried over a celebrity's death. It's just...so shocking. But again, my thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and castmates. Stay strong everyone. <3

Remember, stay strong, and Keep Holding On.
Addiction is a tricky and manipulative disease. It is hard to overcome (and I read that heroine addicts have an 8% survival rate/chance of overcoming addiction), and unfortunately, his disease got the best of him. Although this information is troubling for a man who was trying to cure himself, get better, and move forward in life, we must remember him as that. Not an addict. But a genuine, kind, passionate, empathetic man. Remember him as Finn Hudson, footballer and New Directioner. Remember him as a man who is was in love with a woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. Remember him as tall, awkward, canadian, actor, drummer, person. Remember him as Frankenteen. Remember him as Cory Monteith.
