As In Touch reported earlier, the 31-year-old was found dead at a hotel in Vancouver on Saturday. The cause of death has not yet been determined (an autopsy is scheduled for Monday), but people suspect he lost his longtime battle with substance addiction.
Fans and stars have taken to Twitter to express their sadness and grief over the tragic loss. Cory Monteith, Glee, and #PrayForLea (referencing Cory's Glee co-star and off screen girlfriend, Lea Michele) have started trending worldwide on the social media site.
"We love and miss you Cory. You were an angel on Earth can't imagine the miracles you will make in Heaven," fan @CarlyAnnxx98 wrote. "Woke up hoping everything was a lie, but it's not... I love you @CoryMonteith," @ItsMarianaDuque shared.
