Actor Lee Thompson Young Found Dead


It is being reported that former Disney star, Lee Thompson Young, was found dead in his Los Angeles home. 
Young was the star on Disney's The Famous Jett Jackson from 1998- 2001. He was recently appearing on TNT Rizzoli & Isles. According to TMZ, when Young didn't show up for work this morning, staffers called his landlord to check on him in his apartment. The landlord apparently entered the apartment and found Young dead from an apparent gunshot wound.

TMZ reported the following from Young's publicist:

"It is with great sadness that I announce that Lee Thompson Young tragically took his own life this morning ... Lee was more than just a brilliant young actor, he was a wonderful and gentle soul who will be truly missed."

Lee was just 29 years old. 

The SASS will definitely keep Young's family and friends in our prayers during this difficult time.
