    So sorry - I just loved him on the show - will miss him so much
    R I P - his loved ones will remember the good times they had together. My husband died very young and today is our Anniversary and I just saw this and broke down; he was also tall, dark and handsome!!


    Wow deena! U obviously have no clue about mental health! Its not easy for.some ppl who either cant help how depressed they r or might be hearing voices and cant.take it anymore! You.know.nothing.about this mans life and what drove him to commit such a horriffic act on himself and family friends etc! I believe yes! There are some selfish instances in suicicide...but not all


    what is going on in Hollywood lately? This guy is the 3rd young person to die. Sorry, but I have absolute NO SYMPATHY for people who commit suicide. They are selfish, & don't care about the loved ones they are leaving behind...This guy just like that woman Gia had their whole lives ahead of them, & (I might add, great lives at that)..I will never understand why they would kill themselves. If it's mental illness, which it usually is, then GET THE HELP YOU NEED.

    @ Deena

    Talk about a walking piece of human shit, by which I mean you bitch. Know who I have no sympathy for? Trash like you who have no clue what they're talking about and want to blame the victims like it's their fault. Not surprising you have zero understanding in mental health, seeing as your parents were stupid and kept you out of school. It also explains why you currently work as a stripper who struggles just to get buy. You're pathetic in every sense of the word.

    @ God

    Well, I don't know what she does
    (Social Worker?) but I agree with
    you about her total ignorance of
    mental health issues.Talk about
    You have,Deena, A COLD HEART.


    I d'ont believe it ... .pray for you..


    So sad I love this guy on the show!! RIP


    This is devastating news. Such a promising future, I loved him on Rizzoli & Isles. Rest in peace!


    had the biggest crush on him growing up! RIP lee thompson young....


    This is truly heartbreaking :( He was a wonderful actor with so much talent. I'm going to miss him on Rizzoli & Isles. I hope his character is given a proper send off. R.I.P xoxo


    What a lovely young man and what a horribly devastating outcome for him and for his family. My heart goes out to the people who loved him who are left. Maybe the entertainment industry needs to examine what, if anything, may be contributing to this rash of suicides why young actors who show such promise yet choose to end their lives. I've heard it's a brutal business, but even so, there should be some safety nets available for these young people.


    OMG!! I am speechless. My prayers to his family and friends. I watch R&I's every week. So sad.
