Cory Monteith Death Report

Injecting Heroin, Slamming Alcohol

Before Death

10/2/2013 1:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1002_cory_montieth_gettyCory Monteith was shooting heroin and downing champagne in his hotel room on the night of his death ... this according to the final coroner's report obtained by TMZ.

The "Glee" star was discovered alone in his hotel room in Vancouver, Canada on July 13 shortly after noon.

When responders arrived to the scene, they discovered a "spoon with drug residue and a used hypodermic needle."

They also found 2 empty champagne bottles and glasses.

The coroner lists Monteith's official cause of death as "mixed drug toxicity, involving intravenous heroin use combined with the ingestion of alcohol."

The report also notes that Cory "had a history of illicit drug use with intermittent periods of rehabilitation and of abstinence from drugs."

The coroner suggests that Cory's tolerance for substance abuse may have been lower than usual because he had stopped using since a rehab stint in April.

Monteith was 31.

What a tremendous waste! He had everything going for him and so much to live for and threw it all away. Addiction is such a wicked disease.

Why are people so disgusting...The man died..I did not care for the show, but he is still a person. Drug addict or not he still died and lived. For people to judge him on his life is wrong. These people who degrade a dead man just because of an addiction are people of the LOWEST caliber. They do not know his life, struggles etc. people pass such judgements yet want sympathy for their own misfortunes... I am not hating these people, that said they deserve the same judgment they pass upon others, and even more....REMEMBER BIGOTS, WE ARE ALL HAIRLESS APES NO ONE IS ANY BETTER THAN ANOTHER.

And the cops insisted they didn't know what did him in, at the time. Spoon, hypodermic......well, they covered those little clues up for awhile. Now, it ain't even a headline

Heartbreaking. We never heard an unkind word about this guy. I don't appreciate TMZ saying champagne and "glasses" implying he may have been with someone else. If he had I am sure video surveillance would have already come out..
