"Lee was a brilliant actor; he was a wonderful and gentle soul that will be missed tremendously. We ask you that please respect the privacy of his family and friends at this difficult time", Baruch said in a statement.

Police found Young's body at his home in North Hollywood on Monday morning when they came to work in the thriller series TNT drama "Rizzoli & Isles", said policeman Sally Wood. The fire department of Los Angeles went to the scene and pronounced him dead at the home, said Wood.


In the TNT series, Young played the detective Barry Frost


Detectives from the LAPD specialized in RHD and the county coroner's office in Los Angeles investigating the case because it involves a celebrity, the agent said, without disclosing details about the cause of death.

In the TNT series, Young played the detective Barry Frost, who knew a lot about computers but was a little remilgoso. Earlier, the channel announced that it would renew the series starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander.
