According to TMZ, Mark Salling's body was found by law enforcement, hanging in the woods near a creek adjacent to a little league baseball field near his home in California.
A family member contacted LAPD inquiring about filing a missing persons report, and for officials to do a welfare check. That check led them to the wooded area, where Salling had been dead for some time.
Salling was known for his roll as "Puck" on the tv series Glee, which had 6 seasons between 2009 and 2015.
Salling was waiting to be sentenced this upcoming March for charges back in October of 2017. Salling plead guilty to possession of child pornography involving prepubescent minors. Prosecutors say the actor had over 50,000 images of underage children. He was expected to receive 4 to 7 years as a part of a plea deal.
Mark Salling is the second actor from the hit show Glee. Cory Monteith who played "Finn Hudson" on the show, committed suicide back in 2013. It is reported that Salling never recovered from the death of his co-star.
