Cory Monteith Death

Cory Monteith's (Finn) sudden passing of a drug overdose shocked everyone, and the world is reeling from the loss of the beloved Glee star. Friends and fellow actors have taken to Twitter to react, and everyone can't stop talking about what a kind and gentle person Cory was; so humble, and so unaffected by his mega Glee fame. The coroner's report reveals he died of "a mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol,” and Vancouver Police have ruled it an accidental overdose. Our thoughts go out to his family and to his girlfriend, Lea Michele (Rachel), in this difficult time.
