Sometimes life can be quite hard and some people don't know how to deal with it. While most would seek professional help, a few take drastic measures.
That was exactly what happened to Mark Salling, who passed away on January 30, 2018, at the age of 35. He was mostly known for his role as Noah 'Puck' Puckerman on Glee.
The actor, who was also a musician, was found dead by the police during a round check. He was hanging from a tree and had been dead for a few hours, as reported by Faith Family America.
His body was discovered at a baseball field near his home in Sunland, California, after the police received a phone call to do a 'welfare check' on him. The officers' first guess was suicide.
That guess was later onfirmed by the Los Angeles Coroner's Office. So far, no toxicology reports have been released, so it is unclear if he had any mind-altering substances in his system at the time of his death.
It is also unclear whether Salling had been diagnosed with depression or any other psychological condition. But he was involved with the law, considering that he had been found in possession of explicit material involving children.
According to the source, the 35-year-old was awaiting sentence for the crime and was expected to spend up to 7 years in jail. He hadn't been sentenced yet, but he was supposed to go to court next month.
As reported by Page Six, Salling agreed to pay $50,000 to each victim of the child pornography crimes as restitution if they wanted, but United States District Judge Otis D. Wright dismissed his case last week.
No members of the actor's family have come forward to comment on his death yet, nor any funeral service has been announced.
