‘Twas champagne and heroin that felled the beast. That according to the final coroner’s report which says a couple bottles of bubbly and a spoon tainted with heroin were dead giveaways on how Cory Monteith got his Emmy tribute.
When responders arrived to the scene, they discovered a “spoon with drug residue and a used hypodermic needle.” They also found 2 empty champagne bottles and glasses.
The champagne seems a bit melodramatic, but nobody goes out like Hendrix or Joplin anymore. The coroner noted that Cory’s drug tolerance was likely lower since he’d been clean since going through rehab a few months early. Something to think about before you whine into a guy’s ear and push him into rehab. You might be stifling his tolerance, no names, Lea Michele.
