According to recent star news, CORY MONTEITH‘s body was cremated on Tuesday… and his father wasn’t invited to the private viewing of his body prior to the cremation.
Following the completion of the Cory Monteith‘s autopsy on Monday, which revealed that the late actor’s death was caused by the toxic mixture of heroin and alcohol, Cory‘s mother, brother, and girlfriend Lea Michele (who’s been grieving with the Monteith family over the past few days) joined together in Vancouver for a private viewing of his body before it was cremated on Tuesday.
One person, however, was not present to grieve with the family throughout the whole thing: Cory‘s dad, Joe Monteith.
“Joe Monteith – who is divorced from Cory‘s mom Ann – tells TMZ … he was informed of the cremation after the fact, adding he’s “totally devastated” he didn’t get a chance to see Cory‘s body.”
The site continues:
“We’re told Cory‘s body was released yesterday to his mom, and she decided to hold a viewing at the hospital with Lea and Cory‘s brother Shaun. Following the viewing, we’re told Cory‘s mom decided to have him cremated.”
Joe Monteith says of the exclusion:
“I always loved both my sons and am going to miss Cory very very much. I’m saddened at the fact that I couldn’t have been there to see my son before he was cremated.”
