Actor Mark Salling has died from an apparent suicide, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed. 

The Actor was 35 years old.

An LAPD PIO told reporters that officers responded to a death investigation near the Glee alum’s home in the Sunland-Tujunga neighborhood of Los Angeles at 8:50 a.m. on Tuesday, January 30, but they were not able to identify him.

Salling was reportedly awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty in December to possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor.

The Glee alum 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.

His sentencing in the case was set for March 7.

It was reported that the actor previously attempted suicide by cutting both of his wrists in the bedroom of his home in late August 2017.

He was reportedly rushed to the hospital and underwent a psychiatric evaluation. But Salling’s lawyer denied the story at the time, telling TMZ, “Mark is physically fine and … spending his time atoning and working on himself.”

Salling was best known for his role as bad boy Noah “Puck” Puckerman on the Fox dramedy Glee, from May 2009 to March 2015.
