Mark Salling Obituary, Death – Mark Salling, who was most known for playing the evil Noah “Puck” Puckerman on the lauded television series “Glee,” was discovered dead on Tuesday from what appeared to be suicide, just a few weeks after pleading guilty to possessing child pornography. He was 35. Salling entered a guilty plea in December after the prosecution claimed that a check of his computer and a thumb drive turned up more than 50,000 child pornographic images.
He was scheduled to be sentenced on March 7 and the prosecution planned to ask the judge to sentence him to between four and seven years in jail. Salling’s body was found hanging from a tree in a riverbed area in the Tujunga section of Los Angeles, according to a law enforcement officer who was not authorized to speak publicly about the case. The actor’s death is being investigated as a probable suicide, the official said, and the case is still under investigation.
Tuesday at three in the morning, Salling’s disappearance was reported to the Los Angeles Police Department. Mark Salling had left early this morning, according to Michael J. Proctor, the actor’s lawyer, in an email to The Associated Press. He said, “I’m able to confirm that Mark Salling passed away early this morning. Regarding the cause of death, he made no mention of it.
Proctor said of the actor, “Mark was a sweet and caring guy, a person of great imagination, who was trying to atone for some major faults and errors of judgment. The actor’s family asked that its need for privacy be followed.” Mark had a lot of inventiveness, according to Proctor. He was making an effort to make up for some severe errors of judgment.
Salling has only made an appearance in a few productions before to landing his breakthrough role in the widely watched Fox television series “Glee.” He graduated in 2001 from Lake Highlands High School in Dallas, Texas. The characters in “Glee” are members of a high school glee club and their social network. In 2001, Salling received his high school diploma from Lake Highlands. It was shown from 2009 to 2015.
