*According to TMZ, the official death certificate for former Disney star Lee Thompson Young indicated that he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
As previously reported, on August 19, Young didn’t show up to the set of his TNT drama “Rizzoli and Isles,” and was later discovered dead at his North Hollywood apartment.
The death certificate says that Young used a handgun to take his own life.
