Mark Salling's Death Confirmed By Lawyer (Statement)

Mark Salling‘s lawyer has confirmed the actor passed away on Tuesday (January 30) after reports spread that he committed suicide.

“I can confirm that Mark Salling passed away early this morning,” Michael J. Proctor, the 35-year-old actor’s lawyer, said in a statement (via EW). “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.”

Last month, Salling had plead guilty to possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor. He was awaiting sentencing. Photos were allegedly found on his computer, and he was expected to get somewhere between four and seven years in prison for the crime as part of a plea deal.

Mark was last seen out back in December.

    Michael J. Proctor should be ASHAMED to say Mark was a caring and loving person. Made a few errors and misjudgment??? ARE YOU FICKING KIDDING ME???

    He had photos and videos of victims of child pornography from ages 3-5. That’s not even old enough to start first grade! He’s absolutely a trash of a human being. I hope his family doesn’t mourn too hard. The only reason child pornography exists is because of scum like him. Those poor children who are photographed and video taped for these monsters. Makes my blood boil. Disgusting..

    I’m glad he’s dead. The only good pedophile is a dead one. Disgusting, despicable waste of space.

    I agree with everything you said. An error of judgement is running a stop sign or forgetting to pay a fine. He had lord only knows how much filth on his computer and if it hadn’t been for him getting caught, to this day he would still be doing it.
    There are a lot of things people will vary on forgiving someone for but when it comes to child pornography especially with younger kids, he used up all his chances the minute he downloaded that first picture and I doubt many will be sorry about this.

    Even in the end, it’s by a dang Little League field. I’m sorry for his family, but relieved that he can’t hurt anybody anymore.

    gentle and loving person….???? EW. Did they think that was a good statement to release when they read that??? how fucking inappropriate. he was a horrible person, and mentally ill…. lets not pretend he was trying to ”better himself” hes coward and didnt want to face the shame. his carreer was more than over and his family is probably horrified being even related to him….

    I won’t mourn him but I do feel for his parents, family and close friends. They were already having to live with his behaviour and process what he was but suicide, no matter what the circumstances, leaves a destructive trail for those left behind that no one should have to deal with.

    “errors of judgment”…. jeez. plus, everyone knows that child pornography wasnt his only and horrible bad behaviour. he was also a scum with women. anyone who has google can check that online and remember how rotted he was. i also feel for his parents, his family, his friends. man, living with that dude must have been so painful. may they all find peace.
