The ‘Glee’ star’s autopsy was reportedly completed on July 15, two days after his sudden and tragic death on July 13. Initial results may be released on July 16, however, toxicology tests would be conducted as part of the investigation, a new report claims. Sadly, it may be a while before fans get some answers regarding the beloved actor’s cause of death, as it can take weeks for toxicology results to be available.
Cory Monteith, 31, was found dead on July 13 in his Vancouver, British Columbia, hotel room, after he failed to check out on time. While autopsy results may take days to be released, alcohol and substances were allegedly found in Cory’s hotel room after his sudden and tragic death.

It can take weeks for toxicology results to be available, but the Coroner’s Service told NBC News that officials will try to expedite the tests, given the public interest in the matter.
Inside Cory’s room, there was allegedly a bottle of wine. However, it’s customary at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel to gift a bottle to each of its guests. As for the alleged substances found, investigators are not assuming any connection between them and a possible cause of death “just in case he also had an underlying medical condition,” E! News reports.
