Memorial
This site is dedicated to Tyler Lambert.


The son of "Diff'rent Strokes" star Dana Plato committed suicide just two days before the 11th anniversary of his mother's fatal drug overdose.

Tyler Lambert, 25, died May 6 from a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head, according to the medical examiner's office in Tulsa, Okla..
Toxicology results are still pending.

On May 8, 1999, the troubled 34-year-old actress overdosed on prescription pain killers after her character, Kimberly Drummond, was written off the hit show in 1984 amid rumors of a drug problem.

Her death was ruled a suicide by Oklahoma authorities.

Plato married rocker Lanny Lambert in 1984 and gave birth to Tyler just a year later. They divorced in 1990 and Lambert was given full custody of Tyler.

Plato struggled for years, posing for Playboy in 1989, starring in B-movies before dabbling in soft porn flicks.

In 1991 she was arrested attempting to rob a Las Vegas video store at gunpoint and the following year she was arrested for forging a Valium prescription.

Lambert's grandmother, Joni Richardson, said he had been working behind the camera and as an amateur songwriter.

"It's a shame that such a talented human being would do this with his life," his grandmother Joni Richardson told People magazine. "He had all the opportunities in the world and we just can't understand it."

I’m so sorry a beautiful young man such as yourself felt there was no other way. It’s so sad and such a monumental waste of, what I’m sure would have been, a beautiful life. Rest peacefully, beautiful boy.
