July 14, 2013 

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Police say actor Cory Monteith, star of the hit TV show "Glee," has been found dead in a Vancouver hotel.

The 31-year-old Monteith, who played the character Finn Hudson on the TV series about a high school glee club, was found dead in his room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel on Vancouver's waterfront at about noon Saturday.

Deputy Police Chief Doug Lepard says there is no indication of foul play. Monteith's body was found by hotel staff after he missed his check-out time, Lepard said.

"We do not have a great deal of information as to cause of death," said Coroner Lisa Lapointe.

Lepard said Monteith had been out with people earlier and that those people are being interviewed.

Monteith had voluntarily entered rehab for substance abuse problems in April.
