Actor Mark Salling reportedly took his own life early Tuesday. The 35-year-old Glee star's body was found hanging from a tree near his home, LAPD sources tell TMZ.
Sources tell TMZ the tree was not far from a Little League baseball field.
Salling plead guilty to downloading 50,000 images of underage children on his computer in October.
Another 4,000 child pornography images were found on a portable flash drive in his possession.
TMZ reports a family member went to the LAPD station at 3 a.m. Tuesday to report the actor missing.
Salling's body was found hanging from a tree near his home in Sunland, California.
Salling agreed to serve between four and seven years in prison and he was required to register as a sex offender upon his release.
He was awaiting sentencing at the time of his death.
The troubled actor appeared in all six seasons of Glee, which ended in 2015.
