Cory Monteith filmed message to fan before death


Cory Monteith recorded a touching message to a fan just weeks before his death, urging her to stay out of trouble and stay in school. The "Glee" star was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Saturday. A coroner determined he died from a lethal mix of heroin and alcohol.

Video footage of Monteith has now emerged showing the star filming a heart-warming message to a fan during a flight to Japan last month. It is believed to be the last footage of the actor. After an airline stewardess asked Monteith to record a video for her boyfriend's daughter Mallory, the smiling star says to the camera, "Hey Mallory, it's Cory. I wanted to record this video for you guys just to let you know to stay out of trouble and stay in school."
