The news broke yesterday that GLEE alum Mark Salling committed suicide just months after pleading guilty to child pornography charges. In fact, we reported earlier today the concern that Salling’s suicide would leave his victims’ restitution at risk.
It turns out, that this successful suicide was not Salling’s first attempt. TMZ reports, “Mark Salling tried to kill himself multiple times before he finally took his own life … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Sources involved in the investigation tell us their interviews with witnesses paint a dark picture of the actor, who was facing years in prison after pleading guilty to child porn charges.
There were “several suicide attempts,” according to our sources.”
The only good news in all of this is that Salling had his income collected by a corporation he created…which means the victims can sue that company for restitution. The company is worth just over a million dollars.
