Everybody Loves Raymond Child Star Sawyer Sweeten Has Committed Suicide

Keeping the family in my thoughts.

TIME

Everybody Loves Raymond child star Sawyer Sweeten took his own life at his family’s Texas home on Thursday, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which cited a family statement. He was just 19.

“This morning a terrible family tragedy has occurred,” Sweeten’s family said. “We are devastated to report that our beloved brother, son, and friend, Sawyer Sweeten, took his own life.”

Sweeten appeared in the television comedy Everybody Loves Raymond from 1996 to 2005. He starred as Geoffrey Barone alongside his twin brother from the tender age of just 16 months. The popular sitcom, starring Ray Romano, centered on an oddball family living on Long Island.

Sweeten’s sister Madylin, who played Ramono’s on-screen daughter Ally Barone, urged the public in a Facebook note “to reach out to the ones you love,” adding, “Let them have no doubt of what they mean to you.”
