Lee Thompson Young (Rizzoli and Isles' Det. Frost) dead at age 29

I enjoy this show and one of the big reasons is Lee Thompson Young's portrayal of Frost. He was an enjoyable actor to watch, and I shall miss him.

29 is far too young to die.

  • I really like him on the new TNT show. I watch that every tuesday. Such a shame. I wonder how they will "kill" his character on that show? Or can they? So sad.

  • I don't know, louise. I don't know what makes a person do that. And as sad as I am, I cannot imagine how heartbroken his family, particularly his mother, is right now.

  • Not to sound morbid or to minimize Young's death, but the writers have a few options:

    1. Show him dead in his home (like was done on House-just the lower legs), either at his own hand or due to a break-in gone bad.
    2. Open with his funeral and have the characters tell how he was killed in the line of duty.
    3. Show Frankie (or another detective) moving to his desk while everyone talks about Frost's move to the LAPD.

    Those are the three that I can quickly think of. Again, I'm not trying to be morbid here.
