Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

PHILADEL­PHIA — Matt Bendik, the boyfriend of Glee star Becca Tobin, has been found dead in a Philadel­phia ho­tel room. Po­lice say they were called to the Ho­tel Monaco just af­ter 1 p.m. Thurs­day and that a man was pro­nounced dead min­utes later. The city med­i­cal ex­am­iner’s of­fice con­firmed Bendik’s iden­tity and will de­ter­mine the cause and man­ner of death. There were no signs of foul play. Tobin’s man­ager, Ricky Rollins of Schu­macher Man­age­ment, also con­firmed Bendik’s death and says that “with re­spect to both the Bendik and Tobin fam­i­lies, there is no com­ment at this time.” Al­most a year ago, Glee star Cory Mon­teith died of an ac­ci­den­tal al­co­hol and drug over­dose in a Van­cou­ver ho­tel. Tobin joined the show’s cast in 2012 and por­trays the char­ac­ter of Kitty Wilde.
