Lea Michele is said to be 'hysterical and inconsolable' following Cory Monteith's death.


Late last night, the coroner's office revealed Cory's cause of death in a video report released to the public.

Babara McLintock of the coroners service said: "We do now have a cause of death in the tragic death of Cory Monteith, and that cause of death was a mixed drug toxicity and it involved heroin primarily and also alcohol.

"That's really all the information we have at this point. The coroner's investigation is continuing. Mr Monteith's family is of course aware of the circumstances of his death, and we do, on behalf of them, ask for privacy as they go through this grieving process.

"The coroner's service won't be making any further comments on this issue until their investigation is finally concluded."
