Salling reached a plea agreement with prosecutors in October after admitting he possessed images of prepubescent children. A search warrant found more than 50,000 images of child porn on his computer and a thumb drive.

Salling was facing between four to seven years in prison. He would also have been required to register as a sex offender.

The actor played bad boy Noah “Puck” Puckerman on all six seasons of Ryan Murphy’s musical dramedy, which aired on Fox from 2009 to 2015.

TMZ has details of how Salling’s body was found.

Law enforcement sources tell us Salling’s body was found hanging from a tree.

We’re told police received a call to do a “welfare check” on Salling and somehow that led them to the baseball field where his body was found. We’re told Salling had been dead for some time.

Our sources say a family member came to the LAPD station at 3 AM Tuesday to report Salling as a missing person.

We’re told homicide detectives are on scene to rule out foul play, but they say all signs point to suicide by hanging.
