Lee Thompson Young found dead; Former Disney Star dead of apparent suicide


Lee Thompson Young, who became famous on the Disney show, The Famous Jett Jackson, was found dead today at the age of 29.

Thompson Young, who is currently starring on the TNT drama Rizzoli & Isles, was found today, suffered from gunshot wound that appears to be self-inflicted. When Lee failed to show up for work today, the landlord of his LA home was notified and that was when his body was found.

“It is with great sadness that I announce that Lee Thompson Young tragically took his own life this morning,” said Young’s long-time manager Jonathan Baruch in 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.”

Rest in Peace, Lee.
