Lee Thompson Young Suicide Confirmed By Publicist

Rizzoli and Isles actor Lee Thompson Young‘s death has been confirmed to be a suicide by his publicist, who revealed the news in a statement released to TMZ.

“It is with great sadness that I announce that Lee Thompson Young tragically took his own life this morning,” the statement read. “Lee was more than just a brilliant young actor, he was a wonderful and gentle soul who will be truly missed.”

Earlier today it was reported that Lee had not shown up for work on his hit TNT show, which led staffers to call his landlord, who then found his body in his home.

We continue to send out our condolences to Lee‘s loved ones during this time.
