Disgraced Glee star Mark Salling has been found dead of an apparent suicide.
Early reports are stating that his body was found near a riverbed in Sunland, Los Angeles where he was thought to be living.
The former Glee actor was awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography involving pre-pubescent minors.
Prosecutors say he had over 50,000 images of underage children on his laptop which was seized after a female acquaintance of Salling tipped off the authorities.
Sentencing for the case was set for March 2018, and he was expected to receive a 4 to 7 year custodial sentence, as part of a plea deal.
In August 2017 it was reported that Salling had cut his wrists in an earlier attempt to take his own life. However, at the time his lawyer denied this.
