Cory Monteith

Did Not Die

From 'Deadly' Heroin

EXCLUSIVE

0715-cory-monteith-article-tmz-7
Cory Monteith did NOT die from a new strain of deadly heroin that has been going around the Vancouver area -- this according to the coroner.

A police dept. 40 miles from Vancouver had issued a release warning a "toxic' mixture of heroin and fentanyl has caused a spike in heroin ODs.

The coroner who did the autopsy on Cory tells TMZ ... NO FENTANYL was found in Cory's system.

We're hearing the likely scenario is that Cory had not used heroin since entering rehab in April, and he may have gone back to the same dose he had learned to tolerate when he was using, but because his body was clean it couldn't handle the shock.

This, unfortunately, are how most Heroin deaths occur....not from hot doses, contrary to popular belief. So sad.

Ugh, lay off the drugs people. Cory had a really promising future, and now it's gone because of addictions.

It really must be so hard to be addicted to drugs, even with a great career. Look at all the greats who are addicted?

Is there any NON-DEADLY forms of Herion? Just seemed like a silly thing to say about a drug that kills millions. RIP-Cory. You will be missed.

Opiate deaths are up 300% since 1999.

It's not because of a new form of heroin it's because doctors have gone prescription crazy with opiates and get people hooked.

He didn't die from deadly heroin? Well obviously he did because he's dead. I understand the message, but they make it sound like the heroin he was using was somehow better.

This story makes no sense... It's funny how when whitney Houston died, it was cocaine usage even before they knew and the record stayed. Now somehow, Cory's death was not heroin but was heroin... Thanks for clearing this up TMZ
