Former Disney star Lee Thompson Young (best known as character Jett Jackson) has died at 29 years old. The young actor was found dead by his landlord in his LA apartment. The landlord received phone calls from Young’s coworkers, on the set of TNT’s “Rizzoli & Isles” when Young didn’t show up to work. Young played detective Barry Frost on the series.
Officers arrived at Young’s house this Monday morning and the actor’s manager Jonathan Baruch confirmed to E! News that his death was ruled as a suicide.
“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. We ask that you please respect the privacy of his family at tis very difficult time.”
So sad that a young man is gone too soon. Rest in paradise Lee Thompson Young. Miss Kai’s Juice sends condolences to his family & friends.
