Still No Idea Why The Famous Jett Jackson Committed Suicide

Lee Thompson Young, of The Famous Jett Jackson and Rizzoli & Isles, committed suicide on Monday, but no one has any idea why. It’s a little odd. The gunshot wound appears to be self inflicted, but it’s odd because there was no suicide note left, nor any indication of Young wanting to kill himself. No one is sure WTF happened. From TMZ:

Law enforcement is STUMPED as to why Lee Thompson Young shot himself to death … TMZ has learned.

Our sources say Young did not leave a suicide note. He had a diary, but we’re told it revealed nothing as to why he took his life. The diary consists of multiple, mundane entries.

Our law enforcement sources say authorities also went through Young’s personal computer — it contained nothing revealing.

BUT there is one thing…

We do know this. Members of Young’s family have told authorities the actor had “depression issues” in the past.

It must be so sad and confusing for his family and friends. Even if they knew he had “depression issues” for him to be found dead on the day he was supposed to show up to work — a day like any other — must have been a huge shock.


Jett Jackson Star Committed Suicide

Lee Thompson Young, who played Jett Jackson in The Famous Jett Jackson on the Disney Channel, as well as Rizzoli’s partner on Angie Harmon‘s Rizzoli & Isles, is dead. He shot himself. Here’s the report from TMZ:

Sources tell us Young’s body was discovered with a gunshot wound that appears to be self-inflicted.

Young currently appears in the TNT show “Rizzoli & Isles” — and we’re told when he didn’t show up to work this morning, staffers called the landlord of Young’s L.A. home to check up on the actor. We’re told … when the landlord opened the door, he discovered Young’s body.

Lee’s publicist confirms the actor killed himself, telling TMZ, “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.”

He was 29.
