Corey Monteith found dead
Saturday was undoubtedly an emotional evening for Amber Riley. Like much of the national, the actress began the night waiting for the verdict in George Zimmerman’s trial. Disappointed by the news that he was found not guilty, she tweeted, “Heart is heavy right now for the Martin Family, oh my goodness. Logging off ✌”
Hours later, it was reported that Amber’s “Glee” co-star Cory Monteith had passed away. Cory, who played Finn Hudson, was found dead in a Hotel in Vancouver on Saturday. It’s speculated that he had died of a drug overdose, but an autopsy is scheduled for today.
Although Amber has yet to comment on his death, “Glee” producer did release a statement via Twitter. “We are deeply saddened by this tragic news,” they wrote. “Cory was an exceptional talent and an even more exceptional person.”
