An unfortunate ending to his story.
Glee star Mark Salling was found dead in an apparent suicide in Los Angeles.
The former Glee star was found dead at 35. He was best known as Puck on the hit show Glee, but he was arrested and ultimately pled guilty to possession of child pornography and was facing four to seven years in prison, with 20 years supervised release. He pleaded guilty to “one felony count of possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor” after officials revealed he had more than 50,000 images of child pornography in his possession. His sentencing was scheduled for March.
His lawyer, Michael J. Proctor said: “I can confirm that Mark Salling passed away early this morning… Mark was a gentle and loving person, a person of great creativity, who was doing his best to atone for some serious mistakes and errors of judgment.”
“He is survived by his mother and father, and his brother. The Salling family appreciates the support they have been receiving and asks for their privacy to be respected,” the statement added.
