Mark Salling kept his demons to himself in the time leading up to his apparent suicide.

Sources close to the troubled actor said that before his death on Tuesday, which came a month away from facing sentencing after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography, the Glee alum "distanced himself very much from the friends he was closest to."

One insider claimed that most of Salling's friends thought he was "troubled and tormented" but weren't aware of how bad his demons were, telling ET:

"He had a very mysterious side. I felt like I didn't completely know who he was. He enjoyed visiting family in Texas and saw his trips back home as an escape from L.A. and the Hollywood scene."

In addition to visiting his family, the source added that "he would often have friends over to his home in Sunland, [California]" before he was arrested on December 29, 2015.

But after federal investigators found more than 25K images and 600 videos depicting child pornography on computers and thumb drives belonging to him, Salling allegedly turned away from his loved ones and only grew more distant.

As part of his plea agreement, he was facing four to seven years in prison and was required to pay each victim $50K in restitution.

Unfortunately for the victims, the penalty cannot be imposed by the judge as the plea deal wasn't technically finalized. Their only option now is to sue the 35-year-old's estate for the damages they suffered from his transgressions, according to TMZ.

We'll keep you updated on how it all plays out.
