    I hate that he was in so much he felt he had to do this, but may his soul rest in peace.

    I am saddened by his death. I truly am. Those that are so far into the pit of darkness that they cannot see the light needs our forgiveness and love. Saying that I have to admit that I am still waiting to hear some reference to racism or a notice by Beyonce and others that there will be a moment of silence. After all, it seems when something tragic befalls a black-sorry- African American this is what is always redirected to and not where it belongs,to the deceased.

  • A Shame

    @Delicia Ambrosino:

    Wow. Racist much? ‘the blacks will want a moment of silence…’
    Judgmental much? ‘those who commit suicide need our forgiveness’.

    Anyway. I saw this on Twitter from CNN when it broke and felt deflated.
    Barely watch Rissoli and Isles but I remember him from Jett Jackson.
    A shame that someone so young has died.
    It’s just against the natural order of things.

  • RIP Jett Jackson/Silverstone

    @Delicia Ambrosino: I think the only thing Beyonce would say about this would be her condolences like her sister did. Once upon a time, she worked with him when Destiny’s Child guest starred on the Famous Jett Jackson. No one else has made this into something it’s not, and even though it seems like that’s what you’re asking not to happen, that’s exactly what you’re doing.

    So sad to see such a talented young adult kill himself. Makes me wonder if anyone around him actually knew him. If they did they’d have seen the warning signs. No one kills himself without a warning, if the people around him states they are none then that tells me they did not listen or pay attention to him. Is it possible this was not suicide? I read there was not even a note left.
