Cops: No Suicide Note Was Found

Lee Thompson Young's suicide still makes little sense, both to his family and authorities. Police say they are still baffled by what caused the young actor to take his own life.

Young, 29, was found dead in his apartment in north Hollywood on Monday with what authorities believe was a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

However, no suicide note was left behind and Young did not have a history of depression or substance abuse problems, leaving investigators with little to go on in explaining why he would kill himself.

"It's still a mystery. Evidently he was a clean-cut kid who didn't use alcohol and had no reported drug problem," a law enforcement official told the New York Daily News.

Loved ones described Young, who starred as the title character in the Disney Channel series The Famous Jett Jackson and more recently as Boston police detective Barry Frost on the TNT police drama Rizzoli & Isles, as a man of "positive energy" and "soulful grace."

The production of Rizzoli & Isles has been shut down for at least a week while investigators try to piece together Young's death.
