Actor Mark Salling, best known for his role as Noah “Puck” Puckerman on Fox’s musical comedy-drama “Glee,” has died, according to his attorney. He was 35.

Los Angeles Police say they were called to investigate a report of a death in a wooded area near Tujunga at 8:50 am local time on Tuesday morning, but could not confirm any further information.

Salling was indicted in May 2016 on charges of receiving and possessing child pornography.

He pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor and was scheduled for sentencing March 7.

As part of a plea agreement, Salling was expected to be sentenced to four years to seven years in federal prison, followed by a 20-year period of supervised release and registration as a sex offender.
