Unfortunately, we’ve lost the lives of many young stars to drug addiction. Here are nine tragic deaths of celebrities who overdosed. These young lives were definitely taken too soon, but the stars on this list managed to leave a legacy that will last for many years to come.
1. Cory Monteith
The 31-year-old Glee actor was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver back in July 2013 after taking a deadly cocktail of booze and heroin. The star was supposedly alone when he overdosed and his death was ruled accidental by the Vancouver Police Department. His girlfriend and fellow co-star, Lea Michele, organized a celebration of life for Monteith in Los Angeles, attended by cast, crew, and creators of the show, as well as colleagues from the show’s network and studio.
