Sawyer Sweeten’s family has confirmed that the child star of hit US show Everybody Loves Raymond has killed himself.

According to BBC, his family confirmed in a statement that the 19-year-old “took his own life” on Thursday morning. He is reported to have shot himself on the front porch of the family home in Texas.

In a statement, the family said:

‘This morning a terrible family tragedy has occurred. We are devastated to report that our beloved brother, son, and friend, Sawyer Sweeten, took his own life. He was weeks away from his 20th birthday. At this sensitive time, our family requests privacy and we beg of you to reach out to the ones you love.’

Sawyer Sweeten played Geoffrey Barone in the hit show, which also featured his twin brother Sullivan as Michael Barone and older sister Madylin as Ally Barone. The show ran from 1996 – when the twin boys were just 16 months old – to 2005.

    May his soul rest in peace. When I read ” it’s been confirmed that the child star has killed himself, why couldn’t the person just say committed suicide.

      does it change the fact that the child star took his own life?

    Very sad. I really don’t why you took your life dear, wish you had given life a chance. I sincerely empathize with the family and pray for strength to go through this loss.

    Too young to give up on life. Too soon because he started well as a star already so hopefully d future holds better promises. I wonder d problem of a 19year old that made him so depressed n suicide was the last option? Life is not easy.we know but we should never loose hope. I love twin n they look so identical. RIP
