Former "Glee" star Mark Salling has died, and authorities believe that it was suicide.

TMZ reported on January 30 that the actor's body was found at the Los Angeles River in the Sunland area, an L.A. suburb where he lived. His manner of death hasn't been released.

There is suspicion that he has tried suicide before. Last year, TMZ claimed he tried to cut his wrists.

The death comes as he was due to be sentenced on a child pornography case.

Last October, Mark pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor as part of a plea bargain with prosecutors. As part of the plea, he was expected to get four to seven years in prison.

In May 2016, Mark was indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts of child porn after cops found more than 50,000 images of child pornography and child erotica on his personal computer. Last October, TMZ said Mark agreed to make restitution to the victims, which is $50,000 per victim.

At the time of his arrest in December 2015, it was reported that an ex-girlfriend tipped off authorities to the contents of Mark's computer.
