There may not be any answers as to why Rizzoli & Isles star Lee Thompson Young decided to take his own life.
Law enforcements tell TMZ that the actor, who was found dead on Monday after committing suicide, did not leave a note.
As Life & Style reported yesterday, when Lee didn't show up on set to the TNT show, staffers called the landlord of his North Hollywood apartment. The landlord found his body upon opening the door. Sources tell TMZ he more than likely died from a self-inflicted gun shot.
TNT, Warner Bros. and Rizzoli & Isles executive producer Janet Tamaro issued a statement to Life & Style about his untimely death.

“Everyone at Rizzoli & Isles is devastated by the news of the passing of Lee Thompson Young. We are beyond heartbroken at the loss of this sweet, gentle, good-hearted, intelligent man. He was truly a member of our family. Lee will be cherished and remembered by all who knew and loved him, both on- and offscreen, for his positive energy, infectious smile and soulful grace. We send our deepest condolences and thoughts to his family, to his friends and, most especially, to his beloved mother.”
TMZ is also reporting that Lee had a diary, but none of the entries reveal why he decided to take his own life. He was last seen on Saturday. Police believe he may have died that day.
E! News is reporting that production on TNT's cop drama has been temporarily suspended in wake of the tragic news.
Lee's rise to fame began in 1998 when he nabbed the lead role in Disney's The Famous Jett Jackson. He played running back Chris Comer in the 2004 flick Friday Night Lights and went on to star in many television roles.
