Lee Thompson Young Suicide – Dead at 29
This is so horrible! TMZ reports that “Rizzoli & Isles” and former Disney star Lee Thompson Young has died from a possible suicide.
Sources tell us Young’s body was discovered with a gun shot wound that appears to be self-inflicted.
Young currently appears in the TNT show “Rizzoli & Isles” — and we’re told when he didn’t show up to work this morning, staffers called the landlord of Young’s L.A. home to check up on the actor.
We’re told … when the landlord opened the door, he discovered Young’s body.
Ughhh how horrible :(. I loved him when I was growing up. Jett Jackson was the best. I have no words right now.
Lee’s publicist confirms that he killed himself.
“It is with great sadness that I announce that Lee Thompson Young tragically took his own life this morning … Lee was more than just a brilliant young actor, he was a wonderful and gentle soul who will be truly missed.”
