Lee Thompson Young did not leave a suicide note before he took his own life it has been confirmed, while a law enforcement officer has revealed the actor's untimely death is “still a mystery.”

The 29-year-old, whose TNT show Rizzoli & Isles has now been suspended, was found dead at his North Hollywood home on Monday with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. It has now been confirmed that a suicide note was not found at the scene, showing no indication as to why Young would take his own life.

A law enforcement officer has now told the New York Daily News that they are yet to find a motive for his suicide.

“It's still a mystery. Evidently he was a clean-cut kid who didn't use alcohol and had no reported drug problem,” the officer said.

Young was last seen on Saturday and staff on the TNT show grew concerned when he failed to show up for work on Monday. His body was found when a landlord went to check on him.

The actor first made it big as a Disney star, before he then went on to play running back Chris Comer in the 2004 movie Friday Night Lights. He also appeared in The Guardian, South Beach, Scrubs and Smallville.

Young's manager Paul Baruch confirmed the tragic news in a statement, saying: “Lee was more than just a brilliant young actor, he was a wonderful and gentle soul who will be truly missed. We ask that you please respect the privacy of his family and friends at this very difficult time."
