Tributes continue to pour in for Cory Monteith, the Calgary-born actor and star of 'Glee', found dead in a Vancouver hotel Saturday. He was 31.
Police in Vancouver said there was no indication of foul play. Monteith was discovered by hotel staff after he missed his check-out time, police say.
"We do not have a great deal of information as to cause of death," B.C.'s chief coroner Lisa Lapointe said.
Monteith, who had spoken about struggles with addiction in the past, admitted himself to a treatment facility for "substance addiction" in April.
He was open about his troubled past. As a teen, he said he stole from his family to fuel his drug addiction. In a 2011 interview with George, Cory spoke about those dark days and why he decided to publicly own up to his past.
"If I can, through my experience, shed light on the way out of a difficult situation that I know many kids are experiencing, just like I did when I was a teenager, that's huge," he said.
Cory's 'Glee' co-stars and fellow actors are among those who took to Twitter to pay tribute to the much-loved actor.
