Just one day after learning of his death, Lee Thompson Young's co-stars on the TNT show "Rizzoli & Isles" paid homage to the fallen actor with an on-air tribute.

At the end of the show Tuesday night, a title screen appeared with the words, "In Loving Memory of Lee Thompson Young 1984-2013" ... followed by two silent clips of the 29-year-old actor.

We broke the story ... Young's body was discovered inside his North Hollywood apartment Monday morning ... after producers called the actor's landlord to check up on him when he failed to show up on set for work.

Officials say Young took his own life ... but it's still unclear why.

Poster #1 says how she met her rich boyfriend online, and Post #2, says "Life is so lonely." The thing is poster 1 and 2 is the same person. That folks is what a real idiot looks like. Talk about the definition of a loser.

I am so sorry to hear about Lee's death. He was so good and had so much goping for him. What could be so bad that he would take his own life. My sympathays go out to his family and all the cast at Rizzoli and Isles. May he RIP.

so sad and so young but why is everyone speculating that he committed suicide or had been using illegal drugs? maybe he had an un-diagnosed heart problem that was the cause?

too young, so sad, wish people would not speculate about his death being overdose of illegal drugs or suicide - he may have had a heart condition that had not been diagnosed like a lot of athletes playing football or basketball
