Cory Monteith, seen here at the 2013 SAG Awards with girlfriend Lea Michele, died of an overdose.

Glee actor Cory Monteith’s death on the weekend was caused by an overdose of heroin and alcohol, according to the BC(British Columbia) Coroner’s Office.

According to BC Coroner’s Service spokeswoman Barb McLintock, “There’s absolutely nothing at this point to suggest this is anything other than the most sad and tragic accident.”

The 31-year-old Canadian’s lifeless body was discovered by hotel staff when he missed his check out time.
