In order to reach a speedy and efficient conclusion to the case of Cory Monteith's (Finn Hudson) sudden death, Vancouver police and coroner’s services have already kicked the investigation into high gear.
"I want to pass on our condolences to the family, friends, castmates and millions of fans of Mr. Monteith," acting police chief Doug LePard said Saturday night in a statement read out to reporters.
At the same time Doug LePard and the coroner for the case, Lisa Lapointe, gave few details about the investigation, but they did indicate that there was no sign of foul play.
"The death of a young person is a tragedy for their family, friends and community. A sudden death is more shocking and our hearts go out to the family and friends who are mourning the loss of this young man," Lisa Lapointe said in her own statement.
Even though there is no sign of foul play, there will be an autopsy, scheduled for Monday, to investigate the death and to hopefully establish a cause — though drugs are believed to have played a part in Cory's death.
All eyes will be on the police and coroners’ investigations, given the popularity of Glee. "We know there will be considerable interest in this case, and we have detectives assigned to the case who attended with our forensic identification unit to examine the scene, to ensure to the extent possible that there are no unanswered questions," Le Pard said.
