The boyfriend of one of the regulars on the Fox musical series “Glee” has been found dead. TMZ.com reports that Matt Bendik, the boyfriend of actress Becca Tobin, was found Thursday in a Philadelphia hotel room.

"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," TMZ reports.

Bendik, a 35-year-old nightclub owner, was in Philadelphia on business with Tobin. The couple went out to a club with friends Wednesday night and initially it was reported that they left together. But as the story was updated, authorities reportedly said the last person to see Bendik alive was the manager at the Philadelphia club, just before midnight Wednesday.

"This is relevant because it now appears Tobin did not leave with him, contrary to what other sources tell TMZ," the website reports.

The next day, Thursday a housekeeper found Bendik’s body just after noon. It’s not clear where the actress was when the body was discovered, the story adds. Police and paramedics arrived at the hotel just after 1 p.m. ET Thursday, TMZ notes, adding that Bendik was pronounced dead almost immediately, at 1:17 p.m. Authorities reportedly said Bendik's body was found face down in bed.

"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," TMZ reports. "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."

The story adds: "Our sources say detectives want to interview Becca Tobin." Tobin has played Kitty Wilde on "Glee" since fall 2012.
