More tests needed for cause of Monteith’s death

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — With no obvious cause of death for “Glee” star Cory Monteith, the British Columbia Coroners Service says it will do further testing to determine how the 31-year-old died.

The autopsy was taking place Monday, but the coroners’ service says it could take several days before toxicology test results are in.

Vancouver police have ruled out foul play.

Sgt. Randy Fincham says there’s nothing to indicate Monteith’s death was due to illicit drug use.

Police say that when Monteith’s body was found Saturday in a Vancouver hotel, he had been dead for several hours.
