Lee Thompson Young, a veteran actor who has portrayed Detective Barry Frost on Rizzoli & Isles since 2010, was found dead today at his home in Los Angeles.
He was 29 years old.
Insiders tell TMZ that Young didn't show up to work this morning, so series staffers phoned his landlord and asked him to check on the star.
When the landlord opened the door, he discovered Young's corpse on the floor, seemingly the result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Young also appeared on episodes of Smallville, The Good Guys and CSI: NY.
We send our best wishes to Young's friends and family.
UPDATE: The actor's manager has confirmed the suicide and TNT has released the following statement in light of this tragedy...
Everyone at Rizzoli & Isles is devastated by the news of the passing of Lee Thompson Young. We are beyond heartbroken at the loss of this sweet, gentle, good-hearted, intelligent man. He was truly a member of our family.
Lee will be cherished and remembered by all who knew and loved him, both on- and offscreen, for his positive energy, infectious smile and soulful grace. We send our deepest condolences and thoughts to his family, to his friends and, most especially, to his beloved mother.
