Former Glee actor Mark Salling has died at 35. Salling had recently pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography and was set to be sentenced in March.
Early on the morning of January 30th, an unnamed member of Salling’s family came to the Sunland LAPD station to report him as a missing person, according to TMZ. After a search, Salling’s body was found hanging from a tree near a baseball field. Although there were homicide detectives at the scene, an officer who was not at liberty to speak to the public told TMZ that it is believed to be a hanging suicide.
Salling had been under investigation since 2015, when his then-girlfriend spoke to authorities. After he was arrested, police found over 25,000 images and 600 videos of child pornography on his computer.
In December, he made a plea deal with the prosecution. His sentencing was scheduled for March 7th, and he was expected to receive a sentence between four and seven years, as opposed to a potential 20 years without the plea deal.
