'Rizzoli & Isles' star Lee Thompson Young dead of apparent suicide at 29

Lee Thompson Young, who plays Det. Barry Frost on TNT's "Rizzoli & Isles," has died at the age of 29. TMZ reports that the young actor, who starred on the Disney Channel hit "The Famous Jett Jackson" in the late '90s, was discovered on Monday (Aug.19) with a gun shot wound that appears to have been self-inflicted. According to the report, when Young failed to show up to the "Rizzoli & Isles" set on Monday morning, staffers on the show called his landlord to check in on him. When the landlord entered Young's home, he discovered the body. Beyond breakout role and his current job, Young starred in the 2004 movie version of "Friday Night Lights" and had a major guest arc on ABC's "FlashForward" in 2009.
