TMZ is saying law enforcement sources are telling them no drugs or drug paraphernalia was found at the scene. A housekeeper found Bendik face down, just after noon on Thursday. The cause of death is not currently known, but the outlet is also reporting authorities do not suspect foul play at this time.

Bendik, 35, ran several nightclubs around the country, but most notably he worked as the co-owner of AV Nightclub and the director of operations at DBA Nightclub in Los Angeles, California.

To make the death eerier, this Sunday will mark the one-year anniversary of Cory Monteith‘s death. He was also found in a hotel room on July 13, 2013. The cause of death was determined as a drug overdose.

On Wednesday, just a day before his body was discovered, Bendik posted a picture on Instagram of Tobin, with the caption, “#WCW,” which stands for “Woman crush Wednesday.” Tobin was also active on her Instagram account up until yesterday. She posted an image promoting a shoe giveaway for an ethical fashion brand she supports.

Tobin, who is most known for her role as cheerleader Kitty Wilde on Glee, has yet to comment on Bendik’s death.
