Report Former ‘Glee’ star Mark Salling dead of apparent suicide

Coroner's Assistant Chief Ed Winter said an autopsy was pending, but confirmed that the 35-year-old actor hung himself from a tree.

As an actor, Salling was best known for portraying Noah "Puck" Puckerman on Ryan Murphy's massively successful musical drama-comedy.

The charges were brought against him after a December 2015 search warrant found more than 50,000 images of child pornography on his computer and a USB stick.

"I can confirm that Mark Salling passed away early this morning", Salling's attorney Michael Proctor said in a statement to People.

Salling is survived by a mother, father and brother.

The cause of death was not immediately released.

In a plea agreement reached with prosecutors, Salling was to face four to seven years in prison to avoid a maximum sentence of 20 years.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mark Salling's family and friends at this hard time, and we'll be sure to bring you any further updates as they surface.

A month before his death, Salling formally pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography. Additionally, the producer said that "having compassion for Mark Salling" in no way minimizes the severity of his actions and crimes. He had been named in a two-count indictment stemming from a December 2015 raid on his home, where Los Angeles police detectives found thousands of images and videos depicting child pornography, according to court papers. He was ordered to pay $50,000 retribution to all victims that requested it, register as a sex offender, and undergo treatment. His hearing was scheduled for March 7, in which his sentence was supposed to be read out.
