ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) -  We talk about suicide in men in this week's edition of “He Said / She Said”.  

Management for Lee Thompson Young confirmed the 29-year-old actor committed suicide at his Los Angeles home Monday morning.  This former Disney Kid was at the start of a promising career with a regular role on the TNT series “Rizzoli & Isles”.

“Stealhead” Joe Adam Randolph was lesser known, but a household name in the fly-fishing and nature community. He took his own life in November 2012 in Oregon.
