Cory Monteith, Canadian authorities will hope to know more about what caused the death of television actor Cory Monteith over the weekend following a scheduled Monday autopsy.

Monteith, who achieved his greatest fame as the star of the Fox series “Glee,” was found dead in his hotel room Saturday afternoon by staff at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia. Monteith was due to check out of the hotel, where he had been staying since July 6, and staff went up to the room after Monteith missed the noon checkout time.

Police said Monteith had been out with people earlier, but video and electronic records from the hotel indicated he returned to his room by himself early Saturday morning.

The Fox network and the producers of “Glee,” including 20th Century Fox Television, called Monteith an exceptional performer “and an even more exceptional person.” They said he was “a true joy to work with and we will all miss him tremendously.” 20th Century Fox Television is owned by 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News.

Lea Michele, Monteith’s “Glee” co-star and real-life girlfriend, asked for privacy upon hearing the news of his death. Outside the hotel, a makeshift memorial popped up where fans left flowers and notes commemorating the actor.

Emmy nominated Colfer would not seem to know as soon as she told Access Hollywood that he learned the news Wednesday Twitter.

“Yes I heard that made the announcement,” he said. “I do not necessarily know it would be our last season next year, I knew something was coming eventually. I mean, can not be there forever … do not necessarily want to go so soon, but I mean okay. Is what it is? And all things come to an end. ”

Actor 21 years old, who has a lot of other projects to fill the “Glee”-less time, said he had a good run in the program.

“As an artist, I’m done,” he said. “I have two Emmy nominations and only listen to people in the world of how much the character has helped people. If it is time to conclude, I am satisfied with it, and I’m fine with it.”
