Mark Salling’s autopsy revealed in which the Glee star had alcohol in his system when he died on Jan. 30.
According to a toxicology report obtained by ET, no drugs or narcotics were found inside actor’s body. However laboratory analysis discovered he had a blood alcohol level of between 0.08 as well as 0.096 percent. The legal driving limit in California can be 0.08 percent.

On the morning of Jan. 30, Salling’s body was discovered in a riverbed inside Tujunga neighborhood inside San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles County. He was pronounced dead at the scene. No suicide note was found.
According to the coroner’s investigation report, Salling was “last known to be alive” while watching television with his father at his home in Sunland, California. At around midnight, the actor’s mother “woke up as well as noticed [Salling] as well as his vehicle were gone.”
The actor was under house arrest at the time as well as his tracking device was discovered by his roommate “down the street via the residence.” The Los Angeles Police Department were notified as well as they subsequently issued a missing person report.

Before he died, Salling was awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography. His formal sentencing has been set for March 7.
The terms of his plea agreement stated in which Salling could have served four to seven years behind bars followed by up to 20 years of supervised Discharge with conditions decided by the court. Salling would certainly have also had to register as a sex offender as well as participate in psychological counseling as well as/or enroll in a treatment program.
The case was dismissed after Salling’s death.
A source told ET in January in which the actor had “distanced himself very much via the friends he was closest to,” as well as in which, before Salling’s child pornography arrest on Dec. 29, 2015, “he would certainly often have friends over to his home in Sunland.”
“He was himself the most when he was at home. In fact, he had a bird sanctuary in his backyard where he rescued birds then rehabilitated them,” the source recalled. “He was very proud of in which.”
