    Bendik's cause of death remains a mystery following an autopsy Friday by the medical examiner's office. Results did not immediately establish a clear cause of death but there was no evidence of trauma, the Philadelphia Medical Examiner said. They will be conducting additional tests as is normal procedure. The Philly PD, which would not comment on whether drugs were present at the scene, also noted that there were no obvious signs of foul play.

    One of the most chilling elements of this story is the timing. Sunday, July 13, will mark the one-year anniversary of Glee star Cory Monteith's death at age 31 caused by a drug overdose.
