My world stopped and I didn’t think I’d ever get up from it.’ McGregor is speaking to ‘People Magazine’ for the first time in five years about her son’s tragic death, and troubled life. She claims that ‘ Cory started running around with an older crowd when he was only 13. The crowd introduced young Cory to drugs and alcohol, and he never really stopped using completely since that time.’ Cory and his older brother Shaun Monteith were raised by their mother after their parents divorced when Cory was 7.
