Cory Monteith died on July 13 and though the suspected cause of death was a drug overdose, it hasn’t been declared official until today. People is reporting that Monteith died of, “a mixed drug toxicity of heroin and alcohol,” according to the toxicology report. More:

“At this point there is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most-tragic accident,” the BC Coroners Service says in a statement released Tuesday.

The cause of the Glee star’s death at age 31 was determined by an autopsy and toxicology tests. An investigation continues.

Here’s a timeline of Monteith’s last days that I pieced together from People and CNN:

July 6, Saturday. Checks into the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Canada.
July 11, Thursday. Has dinner with Maureen Webb, co-founder of Project Limelight Society. Of Monteith, Webb said he, “looked so good, so healthy.”
July 12, Friday evening. Monteith and 3 unidentified people (sounds so mysterious, probably isn’t) leave his hotel room.
July 13, Saturday morning, 2:15 AM. Returns alone to hotel room.
July 13, Saturday morning, later. Monteith talks to a Glee director Adam Shankman. Shankman says Monteith discussed going down to California to jet ski.
July 13, Saturday, around noon. Hotel staff find Monteith’s body.

So very sad. Lea Michele has not yet released a personal statement.

  • Pray for Cory we were told.

    Why should I pray for a spoiled, rich drug addict to dumb to live? I’ll keep my efforts in aid of those people who deserve sympathy like sick kids in hospital, not self-obsessed celebrities injecting (or whatever) heroin.
