Glee fans, along with friends and family members of Cory Monteith, are mourning the actor's death.
His cousin, Richard Monteith, struggled to hold back tears as he placed flowers outside the hotel in Vancouver where the Glee star's body was found.
Police said staff at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel found Cory Monteith's body in his room around noon on Saturday after he missed his check-out time.
Glee executive producers reportedly said Monteith "was an exceptional talent and an even more exceptional person" who "was a true joy to work with."
An autopsy is scheduled for today.
He was just 31 years old.
