As the first anniversary of Cory Monteith’s death quickly approaches, the Glee family has been struck with another tragedy—the boyfriend of Becca Tobin, who plays Kitty Wilde on the show, has been found dead in a Philadelphia hotel.
Nightclub owner Matt Bendik, 35, was in the city of brotherly love with his actress girlfriend for business before a housekeeper discovered his body shortly after 1 p.m. on Thursday, July 10, TMZ reports.
According to the outlet, Philadelphia police are calling his death a “sudden death” as it’s believed he died in his sleep, with no evidence of suicide or foul play.
The report also claims there were no signs of drugs or alcohol in the room, according to an incident report. The report also mentions there were no weapons or visible injuries to his body.
Sources tell TMZ detectives are hoping to speak to Becca, as she and her late beau reportedly spent Wednesday night partying together. At this time, it’s unclear whether or not she returned to the hotel room with him.
Sunday marks one year since Cory Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room. Glee’s leading man died of a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol. He was 31.
