Mark Salling has died of an apparent suicide, the Los Angeles Police Department confirms to Us Weekly. He was 35.
According to TMZ, which was first to report the news, the Glee alum’s body was found near a riverbed in Sunland-Turjunga neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Salling had been awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty in December to possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor. He had previously agreed to serve four to seven years in jail, in addition to registering as a sex offender and staying 100 feet away from schoolyards, parks, public swimming pools, playgrounds and video arcade venues.
The actor’s sentencing in the case was set for March.
TMZ reported that Salling previously attempted suicide by cutting both of his wrists at his home in August 2017.
