Mark Salling who was best known for his portrayal of Puck on Glee has been found dead. Police have revealed the cause of death was suicide by hanging.
Mr Salling was awaiting sentencing after he pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography
He was set to receive his sentence sometime in March where he was facing up to 7 years in prison. He had been caught with over 50,000 illegal images of prepubescent children on his computer.
It is known that Mr Salling had previously cut his wrists in August last year although his lawyers insisted that this was not a suicide attempt.
It was at 3am that a family member approached the LAPD to report Salling missing. The police proceeded to perform a “welfare check” on Mr Salling. When they did not find him at his property they searched the wider area.
He was discovered hanged at a baseball field near to his house.
Salling was 35-years-old at the time of his death.
