RumorFix has just received word from the British Columbia coroner’s office that Cory Monteith’s autopsy is taking place and that samples for toxicology will be taken at the same time.
They note that results are not expected for several days at the earliest.
The coroner’s office adds “as previously announced, there was no obvious cause of death noted upon initial examination at the scene. An autopsy and toxicology testing are necessary for the determination of the cause and classification of death of Mr. Monteith.”
