Mark Salling’s death certificate confirms suicide by hanging
“Glee” star Mark Salling died of asphyxiation by hanging, his death certificate confirms.
The official document, obtained by TMZ on Monday, also said the actor was found dead on Jan. 30 in a riverbed in Sunland, CA. His death at the age of 35 came a month after he pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography. At the time of his passing, Salling had been waiting for sentencing.
He had been expected to serve four to seven years in prison and had agreed to pay each victim of the child pornography $50,000 in restitution if they requested it, but as Page Six previously reported, United States District Judge Otis D. Wright dismissed Salling’s case last week.
The victims will now have to sue his estate for their money.
