Salling’s lawyer has also confirmed the news. He said, “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 further added, “The Salling family appreciates the support they have been receiving and asks for their privacy to be respected.”


In May 2016 a search warrant led to the discovery of over 50,000 images on his computer and flash drive. Salling pleaded guilty last October to possession of child abuse images, and his sentencing was scheduled for 7 March.
