    I am shocked and saddened by the passing of Cory. While I was never a huge fan of the character Finn or Cory’s terrible auto-tuned singing (not his choice of course), I loved watching him grow as an actor and improve as time went on. More importantly, I admired him for admitting to his issues and dealing with them. I was excited to see what would happen in his future endeavors. RIP Cory, you will be missed by many.

    Although the exact COD hasn’t been announced, based on age and health status I’m thinking OD or suicide…if that’s the case it doesn’t appear he escaped any demons…that’s the thing about demons…you never escape them, you just have to learn to control them.
