Rizzoli & Isles Pays Tribute to Lee Thompson Young

by at . Comments

Rizzoli & Isles aired its first new episode last night since the tragic suicide of Lee Thompson Young over the weekend.

The TNT drama has since halted production as its cast and crew members deal with the sudden passing of the man behind Detective Barry Frost - and it paid tribute to the 29-year old star at the close of the installment via a title card that read “In Loving Memory of Lee Thompson Young 1984-2013.”

It also included a pair of silent shots of Young from the series. Watch the montage here:

Young did not leave a suicide note and many close to the actor are confounded by why he took his own life.

Some believe a long battle with depression and even a rekindled interest in religion may have played a role.
