What The Cory Monteith Autopsy Special Revealed About His Death

On Saturday, Reelz aired Autopsy: The Last Hours of Cory Monteith, which explained the circumstances surrounding the 31-year-old Glee actor’s untimely passing. However, learning the details of Monteith’s death is no consolation — instead, it’s a reminder of how incredibly sad his story is.

Monteith’s death was not only tragic, but shocking, as well. The TV star, who played the clean-cut football player Finn on the Fox series, was found dead in his Vancouver, Canada, hotel room on July 13, 2013. In the months leading up to his death, Monteith, who had battled drug and alcohol problems since his early teens, spent some time in rehab. Now, the new Reelz special suggests it was this time of abstinence that ultimately caused Monteith’s sudden death.

Dr. Michael Hunter, a world-renowned forensic pathologist, takes viewers through a detailed examination of the circumstances surrounding Monteith’s death.

A new TV special is digging deep into Cory Monteith‘s 2013 death.

Us Magazine reports that REELZ will air Autopsy: The Last Hours of Cory Monteith on December 3. The show will examine the months leading up to the actor’s death, including a meeting he reportedly had with Glee creator Ryan Murphy.
