Mark Salling has died.
The 35-year-old Glee alum was found Tuesday around 8:50 a.m. outside in the northeast San Fernando Valley, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to E! News.
“I can confirm that Mark Salling passed away early this morning,” the actor’s lawyer, Michael J. Proctor, said in a statement. “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.”
Salling was awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor. In October 2017, prosecutors recommended a four to seven year sentence as part of a plea deal that required him to register as a sex offender and enter a treatment program.
His sentencing was set for March 2018.
