| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad Sad

Unbelievably tragic.

11 years after his mother, Dana Plato committed suicide, her son, Tyler Lambert, has ended his own life at the age of 25.

Lambert apparently suffered from depression around the anniversary of his mother's death, and fell deep into drugs before turning a shotgun onto himself.


Our thoughts are with his friends and family during this difficult time.

    I was just thinking of Dana Plato on Monday, when all the tornadoes hit Oklahoma. She died in a trailer outside her boyfriend's parents' house, just a day or two after the terrible Moore tornado.

    But I thought Dana's death was due to a drug overdose, not suicide.

    Tragic tragic tragic… May he now rest in peace.

    sounds like this young man NEVER had a chance. Like countless others who choose this path. Others who have come from the same similar tragic circumstances have grown and overcome. Like "tube steak" said earlier … Suicide is not the solution.

  14. 14

    Rest In Peace to both, and my thoughts are with the family.

    Suicide is never an answer to anything and it makes it worse when a life is taken especially when they are young.

    Re: perezisawannabenevergonnabe – So where is YOUR celebrity website bitch? You got NOTHIN!

    Re: chlyn – Later, the coroner ruled her death as a suicide due to the amount of drugs in her system and her previous suicide attempts.
    This is tragic. RIP!

    Re: Tallulah – Hell, thats what YOU"RE for, dumbass!

    That is really really tragic. Its so unfortunate that this poor kid was the product of a single-drug-addicted-mother and he almost really had no chance at a good life. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temorary problem.

  20. 20

    man this is soo sad…life is so unfair sometimes. poor kid

  21. 21

    very, very sad. In my struggle with depression, my counselor told me that children who have a parent commit suicide are more likely to also commit suicide….only thing that keeps me from following thru at times. RIP Tyler

    This is very sad.That boy missed his mother all his life and I wished he would have found happiness with a wife and kids but in the end he was miserable and depressed and that is sad.May he rest in peace,the poor soul.

  24. 24

    Well christ, you didn't have to go that far into detail. That's pretty disrespectful to the deceased… This is truly sad though, RIP.

  25. 25

    This is so so so so so so sad…

  26. 26

    how sad :( (((((((((
    so so so sad

    Dana Plato didn't commit suicide, she overdosed on Soma and vicodine.

  28. 28

    Re: chlyn – u would think huh? i read on wikipedia just now that it was ruled a suicide. why? not sure.

  29. 29

    He never got over not being able to seek justice for the man who PHOTOGRAPHED his mother as she lay DYING, and then capitalizing on it. It would be hard to comprehend living in a world that sick, under those circumstances. He needed a professional support system, NOBODY could go through a loss like that, after a life like his, and end up okay all by themselves. RIP, young man, and shame to all those who failed you. Your blood is on THEIR hands. (oh, c'mon, no one around him saw this coming? around the anniversery? Fucked.)

    That whole tragedy has come full circle. Very, very sad

  31. 31

    This is extremely sad to read, it broke my heart.

  32. 32

    beyond tragic…RIP to both mother and (sadly now) son :(

  33. 33

    That poor family.

  34. 34

    Well, the kid's selfish mother offed herself with drugs - I am sure part of his problem was being abandoned by his mother in this way when only a teenager, and this no doubt had a profound effect on his life. Some people shouldn't be allowed to breed.

  35. 35

    Oh that's terrible news…but now Dana and Tyler are together again. Sleep well, my dears.

  36. 36

    How incredibly sad… Suicide is NEVER the answer… It's such a selfish act, leaving behind grieving family and friends…and for two family members to do this…I just can't imagine… Tragic…

  37. 37

    This is so sad!

  38. 38

    Mothers matter. The choices they make have a profound affect on the family.
    RIP young man. I'm sorry you chose to leave so soon.

  39. 39

    Whoa. I remember her being pregnant with him back in the 80s.

  40. 40

    That's very sad. I hope he's finally at peace

  41. 41

    RIP little one! You are home in the arms of the angels. Prayers to the family.

  42. 42

    i hate people who commit suicide! how many people out there are fighting against cancer or something and stupid kids kill themselfs! I am sorry but I will waht an idiot! my mom died too and I am doing drugs on her deaths anyversary! idiot

  43. 43

    people don't think how many people will suffer for their death! selfish!

  44. 44

    Re: pusspuss – i was kind of thinking the same thing. suicide is a very selfish thing to do when u have a kid. then again, when u are suffering from severe depression u really do not think normally or rationally. the poor guy probably had a tragic life from beginning to end.

    So sad… very tragic end to a tough life

  46. 46

    I pray that he and his mom can finally be at peace together. I think living in this world is just too hard for some people.

  47. 47

    so sad.

  48. 48

    It's proven that even non-suicidal people who experience the loss of a loved one to suicide are way more likely to do the same. Please, if you're considering suicide, it's not the alternative you think it is. It destroys families, it does not fix anything.

    Well, I remember how I had the feeling when she did that PLAYBOY spread that she was not a happy camper and that she was doomed. But I did not realize the extent of just exactly how bad things were going to get! Now I'm wondering whether Marie Osmond will also eventually commit suicide, like her son did. She too has had a history of serious depression.
