The 31-year-old Monteith, who played the character Finn Hudson on the TV series about a high school glee club, was found dead in his room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel on Vancouver's waterfront at about noon Saturday.

Deputy Police Chief Doug Lepard said there was no indication of foul play. Monteith's body was found by hotel staff after he missed his check-out time, Lepard said.

Coroner Lisa Lapointe said Monteith had been out with people earlier and that those people were interviewed.

Monteith had voluntarily entered rehab for substance abuse problems in April.
