(Newser) – In a case with sad echoes of the death of Cory Monteith, the boyfriend of another Glee star has been found dead in a hotel room. Becca Tobin, who plays Kitty Wilde on the show, was in Philadelphia with Matt Bendik; he runs several big nightclubs around the country and was in the city on business. The 35-year-old went out with his girlfriend and other friends Wednesday night; his body was found, in bed, by a hotel maid yesterday afternoon. It's not clear where Tobin was at the time, or whether she even left the club with him, TMZ reports.

Investigators are calling it a "sudden death," and currently there is no evidence of suicide, foul play, or injuries to Bendik's body, sources say. Bendik may have died in his sleep; no drugs, drug paraphernalia, or weapons were found in the room, and the incident report makes no mention of alcohol or medications, according to law enforcement sources. Police were called to the room shortly after 1pm, and Bendik was pronounced dead at 1:17pm. Friends are shocked, sources tell TMZ, particularly because he was not known to be a partier.

Oh, The Humanity ! Isn't this enough proof that Glee is dangerous and should not be viewed by the public for fear of more needless harm to the safety and well being of the public? Can't we just Stop The Insanity?? On a brighter note - at least it's a program that has nothing to do with the Kardashians......
