Rizzoli & Isles' Lee Thompson Young Dead at 29

Lee Thompson Young, who is best known for his work on Rizzoli & Isles and on the Disney Channel, has been found dead at age 29, sources confirm to JustJared.com.

The cause of death is currently unclear and his body was discovered at his home after he didn’t show up at work this morning and staffers on Rizzoli & Isles called his landlord to check up on him. He was reportedly discovered with a gunshot wound that appeared to be self-inflicted, pointing to a possible suicide, TMZ.

Lee made it big as the title character on the Disney Channel’s The Famous Jett Jackson and then played Chris Corner in the 2004 movie Friday Night Lights. He was a lead role on TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles for the past three seasons as Detective Barry Frost.

We send out our thoughts and prayers to Lee‘s family and friends during this difficult time.
