    Dana Plato's Son Commits Suicide

    Tyler Lambert, the son of late Diff'rent Strokes star Dana Plato, has committed suicide, nearly 11 years to the day that his mother took her own life. He was 25.

    Lambert died of a self-inflicted gunshot to the head last Thursday in Tulsa, Okla., his grandmother, Joni Richardson, told People. Lambert, a cameraman and amateur songwriter, had been experimenting with drugs and alcohol, Richardson said, which she thinks contributed to his death

    What a sad story. Dana was to young to die and now her son. I hope they both rest in peace. May their family find peace also.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    I remember watching Dana on Different Strokes. When she was going through all of her troubles I was rooting for her. I think the one bright spot in her life was her son. She wouldn't have wanted this for him.

    Sorry, I'm blathering. I'm just so saddened by this.

    I'm glad they put a picture with the link. I can't believe how much he looked like Dana.

    RIP

    Sooooo very sad. It was such a heartbreak that him Mom went this way...how horrific and even more heartbreaking her son ended up going the same way.
    He must have been in alot of pain.

    Suicide is NEVER the answer!!! Those left behind grieve a lifetime!!!

    This is a very sad story. I was heartbroken to read about Dana's son and also her. Suicide always leaves victims behind who will never forget its effect on
    them. How horrible.


    RIP

    Rest in peace, Tyler.
    Rest in peace, Dana.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    Sometimes no one sees a suicide coming. Sometimes people see it coming and are absolutely powerless to stop it. Please be gentle: I'm sure his friends and family are grieving. They don't need blame.

    Thank you hoppyfrog. Sometimes you do see it coming (and going) and yet are still powerless.
