Former "Glee" star Mark Salling was found dead, according to TMZ. The outlet reports his body was found near a river in Sunland, California.

Salling starred in Fox's "Glee" for all six seasons as Noah Puckerman, better known as "Puck" on the show.

TMZ is reporting he died of an apparent suicide. But the cause of death has not been confirmed.

Salling was weeks away from his sentencing on child pornography possession charges. He pleaded guilty to the charges late last year. 

Authorities discovered tens of thousands of images of child pornography on Salling's computer and thousands of images and videos on a usb drive.
