Cory Monteith’s Dead (1982 – 2013)

It’s open season on shooting black kids in Florida right now, but enough about that, let’s all feel really bad for a rich, white actor who died living a life of privilege and excess. That’s the real tragedy here. TMZ reports:

According to police in Vancouver the actor was found dead in his hotel room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel around noon … when staffers went to check on him after the actor missed his check-out time.
In a press conference, officials said the actor was “clearly deceased” — and had been so for several hours — when police arrived on the scene.

As TMZ previously reported, Monteith voluntarily checked himself into a treatment center back in April, admitting he had substance abuse issues. It was his second time in treatment.

Hmm, I wonder what could’ve caused Corey Monteith to relapse again so soon. It’s not like he was always around a horrible, empty shell of a person all the time. I guess this is just one of those mysteries.

Addendum: I had some strong feelings about the George Zimmerman verdict that may have oozed into the writing of this post. That said, I got most of that out here. (Lea Michele still sucks though.)
