Radar Online has reported that Sawyer Sweeten of Everybody Loves Raymond has committed suicide at the age of 19. His manager Dino May confirmed to the Hollywood Reported that the young actor who played Geoffrey Barone has indeed died of suicide.
Sweeten was visiting his family in Texas on Thursday where he is believed to have shot himself on their front porch.
Sawyer and Sullivan Sweeten starred as Geoffrey and Michael Barone in Everybody Loves Raymond for 9 years. They were only 16 months old when the show first aired in 1996. Their sister Madylin played Ally Barone, their older sister on the show.
Madylin wrote about her brother’s death on Facebook Thursday: “At this time I would like to encourage everyone to reach out to the ones you love. Let them have no doubt of what they mean to you.”
The Sweeten brothers jointly starred in a 2000 episode of Disney Channel’s Even Stevens and in the 2002 film Frank McKlusky, C.I.
