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.
