Cory died in Vancouver from ‘mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol.’
Lea Michele statement to People: ‘Lea is deeply grateful for all the love and support she’s received from family, friends, and fans. Since Cory’s passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them.
They are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together. We continue to ask the media to respect the privacy of Lea and Cory’s family.’ ‘Glee’ may delay production for a month because of Cory Monteith’s death ‘to let everyone breathe’. That move would force the show to miss its original production start date next week.
