Glee actor Mark Salling's death was suicide, coroner says
35-year-old was found in a riverbed area in northeast Los Angeles
Los Angeles coroner's spokesperson Ed Winter said Thursday an autopsy determined that Salling died from asphyxia after hanging himself.
Salling's death came a few weeks after he pleaded guilty in federal court to possession of child pornography. He was due to be sentenced in March and could have faced four to seven years in prison.
He played bad-boy Noah "Puck" Puckerman on the long-running Fox series, which concluded in 2015.
