The body was found on Tuesday as police received a report of “missing person” from one of Mark’s family members.
Marks lawyer, Michael J.Proctor, confirmed his death to EW by saying, “I can confirm that Mark Salling passed away early this morning. Mark was a gentle and loving person, a person of great creativity, who was doing his best to atone for some serious mistakes and errors of judgment. He is survived by his mother and father, and his brother. The Salling family appreciates the support they have been receiving and asks for their privacy to be respected.”

Most comments go out to Mark’s character on Glee, Noah Puckerman who was a huge part of people’s live for six long seasons.
There were some comments that believed this is what he deserved.

A third stated, “I do not condone in any way what Mark Salling did. However, I will miss Noah Puckerman. #Glee was a big part of my life when it was on and therefore I will celebrate the life of Puck. My heart goes out to Mark Salling’s family as no one should ever have to face suicide.”
