Glee star Becca Tobin's boyfriend found dead in hotel room

7:05 AM PT Law enforcement sources now tell TMZ ... Bendik was found "face down" by the housekeeper. And they say, the last person to see him alive was the manager at a club in Philly just before midnight Wednesday. This is relevant because it now appears Tobin did not leave with him, contrary to what other sources tell TMZ.

6:10 AM PT Our sources say detectives want to interview Becca Tobin. As we reported, we're told she and Bendik left a club together Wednesday. We do not know if she went back to the hotel with him. Bendik's body was found be a housekeeper just after noon Thursday.

6:00 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell us no drugs or drug paraphernalia were found in Bendik's hotel room. And we've learned a detective on scene wrote an incident report, which has no mention of alcohol. We're also told the incident report makes no mention of any medications in the room. And the report says no weapons of any sort were found, and no injuries to his body.

Our sources say Bendik was found in his bed and law enforcement sources say it's apparent he died at some point earlier ... possibly in his sleep.

5:00 AM PT -- We're told police and paramedics responded to the hotel shortly after 1 PM EDT on Thursday -- and Bendik was pronounced dead almost immediately at 1:17 PM.

4:30 AM PT -- Philadelphia PD is calling Bendik's death a "sudden death" -- and investigators tell TMZ … at this point, there is no reason to believe foul play is involved. They also say they've seen no evidence of suicide.


Glee' star Becca Tobin's boyfriend Matt Bendik was found dead Thursday in a Philadelphia hotel ... TMZ has learned … and the circumstances surrounding his death are mysterious.

Sources close to the couple tell us Bendik -- a 35-year-old nightclub owner -- was in Philly on a business trip, and Becca was with him. The couple had been out on the town celebrating with friends Wednesday night -- and we're told everything seemed normal.

At some point they returned to their hotel.

A hotel maid found Bendik's body on Thursday afternoon. It's unclear at this point where Becca was when the body was found.

The Philadelphia Medical Examiner would only confirm that Bendik's body was found … but offered no other details on the case.

Bendik ran several major clubs around the country, but especially in Los Angeles … where he was the Director of Operations at DBA Nightclub. He also was a co-owner of AV Nightclub.

We're told Bendik was not known as a partier, and friends are shocked and devastated by his sudden death.

One eerie twist -- Sunday will mark be one year since the death of Cory Monteith … who died in a Vancouver hotel room from a drug overdose.

Story developing ...
