Young, who played detective Barry Frost on "Rizzoli & Isles," didn’t show up for work so the landlord was asked to check on him. Officers were called to the horrific scene and Young was pronounced dead on their arrival.
Lee’s manager, Jonathan Baruch, issued a statement, “Lee was more than just a brilliant young actor, he was a wonderful and gentle soul who will be truly missed. We ask that you please respect the privacy of his family and friends as this very difficult time."
The Former Disney Channel star appeared to have it all; looks, youth, fame and fortune. What drove this talented actor to such depths of despair remains to be seen. His death is currently under investigation.
RIP Lee Thompson Young.
