Radar Online reports that a friend in Cory’s “inner circle” in his hometown of Vancouver is the one who actually bought the heroin that Cory reportedly used before he was found dead on July 13. “You don’t have to look very far in Vancouver to find the person who gave Cory his heroin,” the source insisted. “There is a despicable individual … who claims he was a friend of Cory. Allegedly, he was the one who gave Cory the heroin, according to [people] close to him.”
Radar reports that Cory bought a glass pipe from a Vancouver head shop on July 11, but that the friend is the one who acquired the drugs. “Cory knew what he was doing but wouldn’t buy his own drugs, so allegedly he asked his … friend to score it,” says the insider, who says this person is “guilty of unwittingly assisting in the death of ‘his friend’ Cory Monteith.”
If this report is true, it’s extremely sad news, as it’s hard to believe that any real friend of Cory’s would have helped him get drugs. And even if this report is true, the friend is unlikely to face charges. “There’s an inherent risk when you’re using illicit drugs, and there’s nothing legally as far as we can see that would cause us to investigate further,” a police rep told reporters on July 18.
