“I’m shocked, and terribly saddened, by the news about Sawyer,” Ray Romano said (via the Daily Mail). “He was a wonderful and sweet kid to be around. Just a great energy whenever he was there. My heart breaks for him, his family, and his friends during this very difficult time.”
Sawyer‘s older sister Madylin, who was also on the show, confirmed to Us Weekly that he committed suicide.
“This morning a terrible family tragedy has occurred,” she said. “We are devastated to report that our beloved brother, son, and friend, Sawyer Sweeten, took his own life. He was weeks away from his 20th birthday. At this sensitive time, our family requests privacy and we beg of you to reach out to the ones you love.”
