Cory Monteith has been dead for a year now. Yet the same tragedy which he suffered has befallen another one of Glee’s starlet’s boyfriend. Becca Tobin’s boyfriend Matt Bendik was found dead in his hotel room in Philadelphia.
The two had been having a wonderful time when Matt returned to his hotel room to convalesce from the camera’s glare. After that what happened remains a mystery.
Whether his girlfriend Becca was with him in the hotel room or not is an enigma indeed. It seems that she was not with him at all.
TMZ first reported about the death. Sources close to the couple said the "35-year-old nightclub owner was in Philly on a business trip." And TMZ states that "Tobin was not in Philly when he died."
The hotel nightclub owner is the last person to have had a meaningful conservation with him before his dead body was found in the room.
While Tobin is being asked certain questions by the law, she is not a suspect. The two were clean and there was no evidence of hard drugs or alcohol in the whole scenario.
It is known for a fact that Matt may have died during his sleep. In fact it could have been a "sudden death" of sorts and Police do not believe "foul play was involved." No evidences of suicide and weapons were found.
Matt Bendik ran many night clubs around the country. He was the Director of Operations at DBA Nightclub in Los Angeles and was also a co-owner of AV Nightclub.
Matt’s death comes a year after Cory Monteith’s death in Vancouver. But Cory’s fatal experience was due to an overdose of heroin and alcohol.
There was a solid reason behind it. Why such a handsome and responsible personality such as Matt had to die remains an un-understandable thing.
The Lord sure works in mysterious ways. It appears to be the case that not everything has a man-made answer to it. That is where only religion can come and apply the healing balm to the wounds of mankind.
When any one of us asks that existentialist question “why me” the answer cannot be found anywhere in the universe except for in the folds of a religious or philosophical worldview.
There are more things in heaven and earth than are to be found in our human rationalizations. May Matt’s family and friends bear this enormous loss with patience and fortitude.
