The 'Glee' star's death has been confirmed as a suicide.
Mark Salling’s death certificate obtained by ET on Monday confirms the actor died of a suicide.
The 35-year-old Glee star was found dead on the morning of Jan. 30, just hours after a missing person’s report was filed.
Salling’s death certificate lists his cause of death as asphyxia by hanging, and states that his body was found in a riverbed in Sunland, California.
Prior to his death, Salling had been “in a dark place,” a source told ET. He had also checked into rehab after attempting to end his life last year, according to the source.
