Mark Salling had alcohol in his blood when he took his own life.
A toxicology report found that there were no narcotics or drugs in the 'Glee' actor's body when he passed away on January 30. However, his blood alcohol level was between 0.08 and 0.096 percent - similar to the legal driving limit in California.
It was also confirmed that Mark passed away from ''asphyxia due to hanging''.
The report - which was obtained by Entertainment Tonight - also said that Salling had previously tried to end his life last year.
Before his untimely death, Salling was awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography.
His family said in a statement at the time of his passing: ''I can confirm that Mark Salling passed away early this morning. 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 is survived by his mother and father, and his brother. The Salling family appreciates the support they have been receiving and asks for their privacy to be respected.''
Following Salling's passing, his child pornography case was officially dismissed.
Prosecutors had moved to have his case - in which he agreed to pay $50,000 to each victim who submitted a formal restitution request - dropped in the wake of his passing, it has now been confirmed that the judge has agreed to dismiss.
Court documents state: ''For good cause show, it is hereby ordered that: The government's motion to dismiss the indictment pursuant to Rule 48 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure is granted. The indictment in the above referenced case is dismissed without prejudice. (sic)''
