"I have never lost a friend. In this difficult time, I am leaning on all of the wonderful memories we shared with Cory, how many ways he was able to make us smile," Agron said. "Glee was a gift to all of us. It gave us a family in this industry."

It's unsurprising but official: the Cory Monteith autopsy results are in and this actor died from a mixture of heroin and alcohol.

Sources close to the Glee star and the Glee set, meanwhile, say cast members and producers saw the actor headed down a dangerous path.

They knew his drug habit had returned, they knew specifically that heroin was the issue, and they pushed Monteith to enter rehab this spring.

An autopsy conducted by medical examiners in Canada shows that Cory Monteith died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol, reports say.

The British Columbia Coroners Service says an autopsy and toxicological analysis show a "mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol" took his life.

The 31-year-old Glee star's body was discovered by staff members at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver, B.C., in the early hours of July 13.

Cory Monteith's death was an absolute shock, but the cause of death is tragically not, given the circumstances, and his ongoing struggle with addiction.

He had completed a stint in rehab earlier this year and recently admitted that he began struggling with drugs and alcohol as a young teenager.

Reports say he had been leading a double life of sorts, staying focused and sober at work while falling back into old habits back in Canada.

It's no secret that Cory Monteith struggled with substance abuse.

He talked to Parade Magazine last year about fearing he would die at the age of 19 and he entered rehab in April.

However, sources confirm to TMZ that while the actor may have been dealing with issues in his personal life... they never affected him on the Glee set.

Following the tragic death of Cory Monteith, it may not be important in the grand scheme of things - but it's something Fox will need to consider:

How will Glee Season 5 handle the passing of a central cast member?

It's not unprecedented for programs to deal with the loss of an actor or actress.

The West Wing gave John Spencer's Leo a heart attack. Just last year, Dallas wrote in a funeral for J.R. Ewing after Larry Hagman died.
