Actor Mark Salling has died by suicide, the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office confirmed Tuesday. He was 35.
The Glee actor's body was found Tuesday morning by a riverbed near his home in Sunland, California. He was out on bail after pleading guilty in December to possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor. His sentencing was set for March 7.
Court documents say an ex-girlfriend told authorities about the child pornography, and police found more than 50,000 images on his computer and a thumb drive. Salling was facing four to seven years in prison, and upon release would have had to register as a sex offender.
