In shocking news, Mark Salling of "Glee" has killed himself. The actor has been in trouble with the law and it appears like he decided to take his own life. He was 35-years-old at his time of death and found dead at the Los Angeles River in Sunland, California.

Details of Mark's death

There are a lot of various details coming out, but Mark Salling was found near a riverbed in Sunland. TMZ shared that they heard he may have hung himself, but they aren't even able to confirm that at this time. Back in August, it was reported that Mark actually slit his wrists and attempted suicide, but he never admitted that this was true.

More details about his death should come out soon. So far, there is no word on how he was found or if he left a note behind. Mark Salling's fans are shocked by the loss of this actor.

Mark's trouble with the law

Back in December, Mark Salling plead guilty to a federal offense of possessing child pornography. He actually admitted to having over 25,000 images. He actually faced a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison, but as part of the plea agreement was only going to spend four to seven years in prison. He would then have 20 years of supervised release and registry as a sex offender. Sentencing was set for March 7 and then Mark would have been headed to prison, but it would not have been a life sentence.

He had these pictures on a laptop computer, a hard drive, and a USB flash drive. Mark actually showed them to his girlfriend and then she turned him into the police. He obviously thought he could trust her with this information, but she was not okay with it and went straight to the police instead. After this, he ended up getting in trouble and his entire life was turned upside down.

Fans were shocked to hear this news.

Mark Salling is best known for his time on the show "Glee." It is really shocking to fans to go through dealing with his death after the hard death of Corey Monteith while the show was still on and going. He died of a drug overdose before the last season of the show would air. The actors and actresses from this show bonded together to get through that hard time and should be doing that once again after the loss of Mark Salling.
