Producers of U.S. police drama Rizzoli & Isles have paid tribute to tragic actor Lee Thompson Young by dedicating an episode in his honour.

The body of the former Disney star was discovered by police at his Los Angeles apartment on Monday (19Aug13) and his manager has stated the former Disney star apparently committed suicide.

Young's last role was as Boston police detective Barry Frost in Rizzoli & Isles, and Tuesday night's (20Aug13) episode of the show closed with a silent tribute to the actor.

A message displayed onscreen read, "In loving memory of Lee Thompson Young, 1984 - 2013" before viewers were shown a montage of silent clips of the actor in his role as Frost.

The drama series has halted production following the news of Young's death and it remains unclear how long the suspension will last.

The cop show's executive producer Janet Tamaro has also paid tribute to Young, saying in a statement, "Everyone at Rizzoli & Isles is devastated by the news of the passing of Lee Thompson Young. We are beyond heartbroken at the loss of this sweet, gentle, good-hearted, intelligent man. He was truly a member of our family.

"Lee will be cherished and remembered by all who knew and loved him, both on and offscreen, for his positive energy, infectious smile and soulful grace. We send our deepest condolences and thoughts to his family, to his friends and, most especially, to his beloved mother."
