Former Disney Channel star Lee Thompson Young died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound and was taking drugs to treat depression but had no illicit substances in his body at the time of his death, an autopsy report released Tuesday by the Los Angeles County coroner found.
At the time of his death, Young had a history “of bi-polar disorder and depression” and was taking lithium and quetiapine fumarate, the coroner’s report states. Toxicology tests found no sign of illicit drugs.
The 29-year-old actor was last heard from August 17th at 2:30 p.m. when he had a conversation with a friend. When he failed to show up for work at a movie set, friends requested authorities to make a “welfare check.” Young was found next to a couch on the 19th.
A witness who was not identified in the report denied to coroner’s officials that he had made any previous suicide threats or attempts, and said she was unaware of any financial problems.
The weapon used in the suicide was described in the report as 40 caliber Sig Sauer semi-automatic handgun and was registered to Young. There were nine rounds left in the gun and one spent shell recovered from the bottom cushion of the couch.
when they put me on meds for my depression,
i was always really just fuckin’ happy.
it was a false happpiness tho.
i decided i didn’t want to be drugged up through life.
when i say it was a complete bitch to get off?
i remember feeling these quick jolts in my brain that was annoying AF.
needless to say i remember telling star fox i wanted to go through life unmediated.
i wanted to feel hurt so i could experience every aspect of life.
real happiness, ya know?
its ironic that on the pills,
he still managed to killed himself.
