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, and offered no other details.

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.

So sad. I never would've guessed she is 28--she looks so much younger. May he rest in peace.

People will be all over this because Sunday is the anniversary of Cory Monteith's death.
