Cory Autopsy Mix of Heroin and Alcohol

Coryはヘロイン摂取で死亡した有名人となった。

現地検死局(The British Columbia Coroners Service)
・初期の検死と毒性検査の結果、ヘロインとアルコールの同時接種による
 薬物中毒により死亡。(過剰摂取含む)
・詳細については検査を続ける。

Coryの家族
・帰郷した際、地元の友人と凱旋パーティ(?)に参加。
・Lea Micheleとの今後の取決めを行った。

警察発表は当初、「(死亡現場には)違法薬物の使用や争った後がないとの
こと」だった。報道から推察すると、凱旋パーティは、Bunga-Bungaパー
ティのように、酒と薬と女性により羽目を外したか。

Schuester先生が、FinnをGlee部に加入させるために、元Glee部の顧問
が違法に入手した医療大麻をFinnのかばんに忍ばせ、脅迫し、その上、
Vocal Adrenalinの演目"Rehab"を見るNew Directions。
これがパイロット番組。
歌がうまい留学生のGlee部参加阻止のために、元Crack house(薬中の溜ま
り場?)へ呼び出したり、Whitney Houston追悼編でもコカイン摂取による
死亡の部分を避けていた番組。
Lindsay Lohanの薬物依存等により逮捕された回数をネタにし、批判された。
まだあるかもしれない。
しかし、性差別によるいじめが原因の自殺未遂は大きく深刻に取り上げた。
思い入れがあるようだ。
なりすましメールの話題もあったが、裸の写真のやり取りは避けたようだ。
一部の出演者の私生活をドラマで演じ、結果的に、リアリティ番組のように
なった。制作側のユーモアか。
Season5では、このユーモアを使えるのだろうか。
死因は、番組や番組制作関係者への影響が大きいかもしれない。
喜劇番組が悲劇番組に変わり、社会批判が偽善に変わる。
米国では入社試験で薬物検査を実施する会社が増加し、キャスティング
会社もオーディション参加時、薬物検査を要求するかもしれない。

Coryが薬中で刑務所に収監される役を演じた「All the Wrong Reasons」は、
予定通り上映しそうだが、Lea Micheleの自叙伝「Brunette Ambition」は
出版できるのだろうか。

WhitneyやLindsay、Coryにしても厚生施設を出た後に、依存症が再発(?)
している。厚生施設は法律上一時的な退避場所で、依存症を悪化させて
いるのかもしれない。個々の問題は大きいと思う。

Glee actor Cory Monteith, 31, died of a  mixed-drug toxicity involving heroin and alcohol, the The BC Coroners Service has confirmed on Tuesday.

The post-mortem testing included an autopsy and toxicological analysis.

At a late morning press conference in Vancouver on Monday,police commented,

“Although tragic, at this point in the initial stages of the police investigation, we believe no foul play to be involved,” VPD spokesman Sergeant Randy Fincham said.

 “We’re waiting for the BC coroner service to complete their investigation: to conduct the autopsy, to do any maybe necessary toxicology reports, to determine exactly what happened,” Sergeant Fincham has said.

Montieth was not shy about admitting to a troubled past, with a history of abuse and drug and alcohol use. While drug use was not directly cited as a probable cause of death, Fincham did note that the case is somewhat “out of the ordinary” given the actor’s young age, making natural causes a less likely outcome to the investigation.


---Cory Monteith autopsy reveals overdose of heroin, alcohol caused death---

July 16, 2013 (VANCOUVER, British Columbia) -- ''Glee'' actor Cory Monteith, who had struggled for years with substance abuse, died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia coroner's office said Tuesday.

"There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith's death was anything other than a most tragic accident," the office said in a statement.

The 31-year-old was found dead in his Vancouver, British Columbia, hotel room on Saturday, after he didn't check out on time. He was believed to be alone when he died.

Police said Monteith had been out with people earlier, but video and electronic records from the hotel indicated he returned to his room by himself early Saturday.

Monteith's death recalled the lives of Heath Ledger, Corey Haim and River Phoenix - actors who battled substance abuse and died in their 20s and 30s.

Monteith had talked bluntly about struggling with addiction since he was a teenager, calling it a serious problem and telling Parade magazine in 2011 he was "lucky to be alive."

In that interview, he said he was using marijuana and drinking by age 13, and his drug use was "out of control" by the time he was 16. "Anything and everything, as much as possible," he said. "I had a serious problem."

Monteith admitted himself to a treatment facility in April for substance addiction, a representative said at the time. He also received treatment when he was 19. He told Parade that his mother and friends had staged an intervention back then, afraid he "could die." However, he said, "I did the stint but then went back to doing exactly what I left off doing."

Lea Michele, Monteith's "Glee" co-star and real-life girlfriend, told People magazine that she loved and supported him and was proud he was seeking help. It was not Monteith's first time in rehab. He also received treatment when he was 19.

Michele was asking that everyone respect her privacy "during this devastating time," said her representative, Molly Kawachi of ID-PR.

The Fox network and the producers of "Glee," including 20th Century Fox Television, called Monteith an exceptional performer "and an even more exceptional person." Michele asked for privacy upon hearing the news of his death.

Monteith had recently shot a Canadian film called "All the Wrong Reasons," with actors Kevin Zegers, Karine Vanasse and Emily Hampshire, slated to debut on the festival circuit this fall.

Gia Milani, who produced, directed and wrote the screenplay, said Monteith portrays a ruthless department store manager who shows a unique vulnerability when he helps his wife deal with post-traumatic stress disorder. She said Monteith connected with the role because he had retail experience, working in a Walmart in Vancouver when he was younger.

"There were some risque moments in the film and he's very intense in it and passionate," Gilani told Canadian Press in a telephone interview from just north of Shediac, New Brunswick, her voice still shaky from the shock of Monteith's death over the weekend. "He pulled it off flawlessly."

Milani said Monteith "seemed healthy" when she last saw him four weeks ago in Los Angeles to screen the film for him.

"He looked super fit and he was energetic and excited. He was really good," she said.

She said Monteith showed no signs of a substance abuse problem while shooting the film a year ago in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He was shooting "Glee" at the same time and would take a red-eye flight from Los Angeles to Halifax on Sundays, arrive-mid-morning and "still know his lines and still be fresh and focused," she said.

"He had amazing ideas and he brought a lot to the role," said Milani. "He had just an outstanding work ethic."

Milani said Monteith told her "he felt like he had achieved so much with 'Glee' that it gave him permission to do other things," including smaller films such as hers.

Off the set, Monteith was "always gracious" in accommodating fans when they approached him as he dined in restaurants, said Milani.

"Never one time was he rude, never one time did he say no," she said. "He was a super accessible guy, which is just all the more painful."

Outside the Vancouver hotel, Monteith's fans created a makeshift memorial.. #RipCoryMonteith and #StayStrongLea became trending topics on Twitter.

In England, what was supposed to be a weekend celebration of "Glee" turned into an impromptu memorial after news of Monteith's death rocked a fan convention.

"The news was devastating. No one had any idea what to say or do," said Chloe Harvey, an 18-year-old fan from Portsmouth, England. "It just shows how much of a truly amazing guy Cory was that everyone was so shocked and emotional about the news."

"Glee," with its catchy song-and-dance numbers and high-profile guest stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Britney Spears, became an instant hit when it debuted in 2009 and made celebrities of Montieth and the rest of the relatively unknown cast.

Monteith served as the show's resident hunk with a heart of gold. He played Finn Hudson, a football quarterback with two left feet who found more camaraderie in the choir room than on the football field. After his character graduated high school, Hudson sought out to find himself before settling on what he wanted to do with his life: become a teacher and mentor.

In real life, Monteith was an avid supporter of an arts mentoring program, Project Limelight, which worked with young people in Vancouver's poverty-stricken Downtown Eastside district. In May 2012, Monteith and Richard Branson, the Virgin Group founder and chairman, traveled to Vancouver to support the charity.

"Cory Monteith was a beautiful soul," Branson said in a blog post on Virgin's website. "His awareness of his own struggles led him to reach out to young people all over the world with deep compassion and empathy to help them through their struggles."

"We'll never forget watching him on the streets in Canada," wrote Branson. "Cory wanted other youth to have the chance to discover their strengths and potential through the arts."

The "Glee" star died of "mixed-drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol," according to an initial autopsy report conducted by the British Columbia Coroner's Service.

Glee star Cory Monteith died of "mixed-drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol," according to an initial autopsy report conducted by the British Columbia Coroner's Service.

Monteith was found dead in his 21st-floor hotel room at the upscale Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver on July 13. Hotel staff discovered his body after he missed his noon checkout time. He was 31.

The investigation into his death by the coroner's office is continuing. No additional details were immediately available. Once the investigation is completed, a coroner's report will be issued. Funeral details have not been released.

Autopsy and pharmacology tests were being fast-tracked, given the widespread media attention surrounding Monteith's sudden death. The Vancouver police held an impromptu news conference Saturday night to get out ahead of the story and prevent media speculation from escalating.

In March, Monteith voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility for substance abuse. It was the actor's second trip in rehab, having also done a stint when he was 19. Production on Glee was not impacted, but Monteith was written out of the final two episodes of season four. The actor, who became the face of Fox's global phenomenon after the series launched in 2009, received the full support of the network, producers 20th Century Fox Television and his real-life girlfriend and on-screen love interest, Lea Michele.

"I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this," Michele told THR at the time. "I am grateful and proud he made this decision."

"I am so proud of Cory Monteith and love and support him 100 percent," co-creator Ryan Murphy wrote at the time. Added co-creator Brad Falchuk: "Cory is like a son to me. He knows I love him."

Michele has yet to comment on Monteith's passing. Monteith and Michele, who have played the on-again, off-again onscreen couple Finn and Rachel since Glee's inception, went public with their romance last year. In late June, the cast gathered for press photos, with Michele tweeting an image that included the late actor with his signature wide smile.

Monteith was not shy about his past issues with drugs and substance abuse. In a revealing interview with Parade in 2011, he admitted he was "out of control" by the time he turned 16, nine years after his parents divorced. "Anything and everything, as much as possible," he said of his drug use during his teen years. "I had a serious problem."

It's unclear whether Glee will make its planned Sept. 19 season-five premiere. Monteith was slated to be a major player in the first few episodes, and the cast was scheduled to resume production on the series later this month. Historically, Glee has not been afraid to take on major issues. During its first four seasons, the Fox musical has addressed teen pregnancy, eating disorders, texting while driving and more. The series has only briefly touched on death.

Glee's Matthew Morrison dedicated an a capella version of the A Chorus Line song, "What I Did for Love," Sunday at a show in New York City's 54 Below. Michele had performed the song on Glee during its second season.

The British Columbia Coroners Service tells the AP an autopsy was taking place on Cory Monteith on Monday, but that toxicology reports would take several more days.

Vancouver police department confirmed the autopsy, without revealing a specific start time.

They turned the investigation over to the city's coroner's office, Sandra Glendinning of the Vancouver PD tells USA TODAY.

Officials have ruled out foul play and Sgt. Randy Fincham tells the AP there's nothing to indicate Monteith's death was due to illicit drug use.

Monteith, who starred on the Fox show Glee, had voluntarily entered rehab this spring for substance abuse issues. He was found dead on Saturday at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver. And more details are emerging about his final days.

According to E!, the Glee star visited the East of Main Cafe, where he ate last Thursday with Canada-based casting director Maureen Webb and his manager, Elena Kirschner. She posted a photo of the actor on Twitter with the following message: "Great meal with good friends."

TMZ.com also recapped the actor's last days, saying he spent them hanging out with friends in Vancouver and enjoying a few cold ones.

Monteith was also reportedly spotted hanging out Friday night at two local watering holes, the Roxy and the Queen's Republic Nightclub.

Meanwhile, Monteith's final film sees him playing a drug-addicted street hustler who goes to prison. An e-mail to the production company, Eagle Films, did not receive a response.
