The coroner's final report issued Wednesday, confirmed initial findings that Monteith died from using intravenous heroin combined with alcohol.

Monteith had checked into the hotel on July 6 and when he didn't check out as expected on July 13, hotel staff entered his room and found him unresponsive on the floor. Two empty bottles of champagne were also found in the room.

"Mr. Monteith was found in a collapsed position the hotel room floor," the report said. "It appeared that Mr. Monteith had been dead for several hours."

Hotel video footage showed him returning alone to his room at 2:16 a.m. on July 13.
