Lee Thompson Young's Death Is "Still A Mystery" Say Police & Friends Of Star


Lee Thompson Young

Lee Thompson Young was found dead at his home on Monday (19 August) this week, having apparently taken his own life by shooting himself. As police continue their investigation into his death, the reasons behind it are becoming more and more mysterious, as revelations into his personal life do not indicate that he was suffering from any kind of depression or that he was battling any addictions. The scene where he was found was also void of any suicide note, and so far police and friends and relatives of Young are still contemplating what really happened in his last few hours.

This Tuesday (20 August), the New York Daily News reported that police investigating the scene of his death have so far found the gun that Young apparently turned on himself, but have found little else to suggest that Young decided to take his own life. A Los Angeles Police Officer told the NY Daily News that they are still looking for further indications that Young took his own life and although they are investigating his death as a suicide, they have not ruled out the possibility that his death may be more complex. He said, "It's still a mystery. Evidently he was a clean-cut kid who didn't use alcohol and had no reported drug problem."

The Hills Have Eyes II Review


OK
A remake of Wes Craven's 1977 horror flick of the same name, last year's The Hills Have Eyes brought nothing new to the horror genre. But director Alexandre Aja's (High Tension) vivid modernization and incredibly grisly images shocked audiences all the same, and the popularity of that remake -- of course -- spawned this sequel, The Hills Have Eyes II.

There was a sequel to the original Hills in 1985 that had race-bound bikers busing their way across the desert and ending up stranded. This far bloodier version of the sequel has National Guard trainees on a routine mission falling into the hands of our favorite deformed mutants in the same desert as the unfortunate family in the 2006 movie.
