Former Disney star Lee Thompson Young passed away on August 19th, and it appears he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, according to the actor’s official death certificate.
Young’s body was discovered at his North Hollywood apartment on August 19th, after he failed to show up to the set of his TNT drama “Rizzoli and Isles.”
According to the death certificate, Young used a handgun to take his own life.
Young — who rocketed to stardom back in 1998 as the title character in the Disney show “The Famous Jett Jackson” — didn’t leave a suicide note.
Young’s friends and family are still struggling to understand why the actor shot himself — though some of his family members told law enforcement he suffered from “depression issues.”
Lee Thompson Young was 29. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
