    LOS ANGELES, California (AP) --
    Jaleel White, who played 'nerdy 'neighbor Steve Urkel on "Family Matters" found dead Monday. He was 29 years old.

    White was pronounced dead on arrival after admission to an LA hospital
    early Monday morning. The death is being investigated as a suicide.

    Born Jaleel Ahmad White, he began his career at the age of three
    acting in television commercials, before landing guest spots on shows
    such as "The Jeffersons" and "Mr. Belvedere." It was in 1989 that
    White landed the role that would make him famous, playing wacky
    neighbor 'Steve Urkel' on the ABC program "Family Matters."

    Following the cancellation of "Family Matters" in 1997, friends claim
    White became obsessed with the character, and grew despondent, despite
    further successes as star and producer of the UPN sitcom "Grownups",
    and as a writer for NBA.com

    Neighbor and friend, Bradley Spencer alerted police after hearing what
    he described as "a loud bang" coming from White's Los Angeles

    Authorities state that upon entering the home they discovered a young
    African-American male with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound
    to the head. Also found was a note, which read simply "Did I do
    that?", a popular catchphrase from the show.

    "Jaleel was an uncommonly good man, an exceptional role model and a
    great comedic actor," said William Bickley, who created the series,
    and Thomas L. Miller, one of the executive producers, in a joint

    "We feel privileged to have known him and worked with him. He'll be
    missed and remembered every day by his many, many friends," they said.

    Actress Kellie Williams -- Laura Winslow on the series -- described
    White as a consummate professional actor. "Everyone adored him," she said.
    "We have all lost a dear, dear brother," said Reginald VelJohnson, who played Carl Winslow.

    White, an only child, is survived by "cousins, aunts, uncles, and
    wonderful friends," Bickley said.

    His crazy split personality from the show probably smudged him out.

    so what's the verdict, is this true or not?

    I don't feel like figuring it out, someone just tell me.
