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.

He had a bright future and actually probably had it better than most his age. What a shame.

Yeh,and were suppose to be sorry for this immature moran who had everything that starving actors always dreamed and hoped for? Hey Emmy Award staff,you still feel justified and honoring this complete ZERO and ommiting Jack Klugman & Larry Hagman at the Emmys the other week??? Finally Mrs. Monteith, You feel your son should still have that honor that the Emmys even though he basically commited an accidental suicide on himself and you telling the press that Jack Klugman's son is out of touch and doesn't know what he's talking about?? Lady and fans of Mr. Junk, this guy is no icon or great legacy, he's just another stupid loser of the drug scene in L.A that took other Actors and Musicians.
