It just gets sadder and sadder. Following the release of autopsy information revealing that Cory Monteith died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol, his girlfriend Lea Michele has released another statement.

The Glee stars, who were a couple on screen as well as off, dated for the last year after being friends since the start of the show. Lea’s statement continues, “They are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together. We continue to ask the media to respect the privacy of Lea and Cory’s family.” Horrible.
