As RadarOnline.com first reported, prosecutors first needed “documentation” about Salling’s death , which they explained in a footnote in the court documents.

“While the government has not reviewed official documentation, it has been reliably informed and believed that defendant Salling is deceased.”

The DOJ spokesperson Thom Mrozek told RadarOnline.com, “The judge has not yet granted the motion.”

Salling pleaded guilty to the charges, and was scheduled to be sentenced in March. He was facing between four and seven years in prison.
