(Newser) Glee actor Cory Monteith has been found dead in a Vancouver hotel room, reports ET Online. The cause of the death hasn't been determined, but the 31-year-old had long battled substance-abuse problems and went through a stint in rehab as recently as April. Monteith, who played Finn Hudson on the show, checked into the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel on July 6 and was due to leave yesterday, reports the Vancouver Sun. Hotel staffers who checked on him found him "clearly deceased," and police do not suspect foul play, reports TMZ. The Calgary native had been dating co-star Lea Michele.

Someone once told me that there are FOUR/4 Essentials in Life, and w/out them man can not succeed...IF he doesn't get those essentials the right way, he will get them the wrong way: Here they are 1 Comfort..2. Assurance...3 Wisdom, and 4. Salvation Matt 6:33 KJV One needs salvation first to get the rest..he needs assurance that someone loves and cares for him, he needs assurance to know where he is going from day to day and in the end and where he will go for eternity and he needs wisdom to know what to do and when and why etc....all these attributes can ONLY be gotten from the LORD JESUS CHRIST.....IF you get them from the world you get them wrong and take the wrong track and end up no where or ......

I know what a loss like that can do to a family. I lost a daughter at 46years old, 2 years ago, from alcohol abuse. Knowing that you done your best is never enough. The pain that his family will feel will be horrendous. My heart goes out to them. RIP young man

Booze, weed, opiates, some people never learn. I'm so glad I did. ^ This is yet another example to learn from. The pressure, the adulation, the free-loading admirers/agents, etc.. I'd rather just work behind the camera than in front of it anyday.
