Glee Cast and Crew Remember Cory Monteith via Twitter (VIDEO)


It’s the one year anniversary of the passing of Glee star, Cory Monteith. On July 13, 2013, the actor was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room. Later, an autopsy revealed that his death was caused by a toxic mixture of heroin and alcohol.

The 31 year old had spent his life battling demons, and unfortunately they eventually got the best of him. However, his friends and fans are choosing to remember the positive aspects of the legacy he left, no matter how brief. Cory was a fine actor, the heart and soul of Glee, and by all accounts a total mensch.
