'Everybody Loves Raymond' Star Sawyer Sweeten Dead Of Apparent Suicide


Former child star Sawyer Sweeten took his own life early Thursday morning. Sweeten was only 19 years old.

He reportedly shot himself on the front porch of his family's Texas home.

Sweeten played Geoffrey Barone on the hit sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond."

He began acting on the show when he was only a little over a year old, and he shared the screen with his twin brother and his older sister.

"Everybody Loves Raymond" concluded in 2005, and Sweeten didn't act after that.

His sister, Madylin Sweeten, issued a statement, saying,

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family in this difficult time.
