Glee star Cory Monteith died of a “mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol,” according to an autopsy report conducted by the British Columbia coroner’s office.

“There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most tragic accident,” the coroner’s office said in a statement Tuesday.

Monteith died in Vancouver Saturday at age 31. In April, Monteith checked himself into a rehab facility for substance addiction. After finishing a 30-day stint, he made his first post-rehab appearance at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball charity event with girlfriend and Glee co-star Lea Michele last month.
