It was only a year ago that Cory Monteith was found dead in a hotel in Vancouver Canada, but now another death has rocked the TV show. Becca Tobin, who appeared in “Glee” has lost her boyfriend Matt Bendik. Bendik’s body was found dead at approximately 1 p.m. yesterday at the Hotel Monaco.

The Philadelphia Police stated that ““On July 10, 2014, at approximately 1:05 p.m., police responded to Hotel Monaco and housekeeping discovered a white male, 31 years of age, at the location.” The statement continued ““Medics pronounced him dead at 1:17 p.m., and the cause is undetermined by medical examiners.” The Hotel Monaco is located on Chestnut Street in the Independence Hall area of the city. No cause of death has been announced.

Bendik was the owner of multiple clubs across the country, including DBA in West Hollywood. Bendik was in Philadelphia on business, and Tobin (who plays Kitty on the hit Fox series) was accompanying him and the couple going out with friends for dinner on Wednesday evening. The club that Bendik owned, DBA, placed on a billboard “We Love You Matt.”
