    Per Vancouver PD: Cause not immediately apparent; foul play not suspected. Checked into hotel July 6th. Is originally from BC. Will gather evidence, speak to family, friends, associates as part of investigation.

    Live feed concluded; no updates until tomorrow...more likely Monday per Vancouver PD.

    EDIT: VPD Statement...(click link for full statement)...

    I..wow...I don't even know what to say to this. He went to rehab earlier this year, I know no official cause has come out yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was an overdose. Such a tragedy.

    Also drugs damage one's body, so it could have been a heart attack, stroke or a seizure. Probably won't hear much more before Monday (if then).

    I don't watch Glee, but he was too young. I wish we could somehow teach our young people how to handle their demons without resorting to drugs. :(

    You have to be kidding me. I feel almost how I felt when Heath Ledger died. He was way too young and this is completely shocking and I feel like I'm going to start crying any second. Is this real?

    Yes, sadly it is real. :( I watched the live feed of the VPD press conference and posted their press release (see above).

    What a shame. So much talent and gone far too soon. I also think Anita summed it up perfectly about our kids today and the use of substances to deal w/their demons. :(

    That is so sad. Is it true he was to be married in a few weeks?
