Matt Bendik, “Glee” star Becca Tobin’s boyfriend, was found dead in a Philadelphia hotel room Thursday, July 10, just a few days before the first anniversary of the death of Cory Monteith on July 13. He was 35.
According to New York Daily News, Bendik’s body was found around 1 p.m. by a staff member at the Hotel Monaco. No drugs or paraphernalia were found in his hotel room. Bendik’s body was taken to the Medical Examiner for an autopsy.
The couple was in Philadelphia for a business trip and was spotted in a club on Wednesday night. It was not clear where Tobin, who played cheerleader Kitty Wilde on “Glee,” was at the time when Bendik died, but police said there were no obvious signs of foul play.
Bendik ran several nightclubs across the U.S., but he was the director of operations at the hot spot DBA in Los Angeles. The club tweeted a picture Thursday night that said, “We love you Matt.”
