It is a sad day for Justin Mentell’s family and friends today as they have found out tragic news that their loved one has lost his life. According to several reports, twenty-seven year old actor Justin Mentell was found dead near his Jeep in Wisconsin today due to a car crash.

Reports are saying that Mentell’s Jeep had “gone down a steep embankment near Blanchardville, Wisconsin, and hit two trees. Police said Mentell, who was born in Texas and attended high school in Waukegan, Illinois, was not wearing a seat belt.” But it is winter and roads in Wisconsin can get pretty nasty, slick and treacherous so I would not be surprised that weather conditions had something to do with his crash. Whatever the case of the crash, it is devastating to hear of a life lost so tragically and so young!

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, a “farmer spotted the car while driving along a road outside Blanchardville, Wisconsin. Chief Deputy John Pepper told reporters, “It looks like [Mentell] had been there for several hours. There are a lot of trees in that area, so if you were driving on 39, you wouldn’t be able to see the vehicle. The farmer was traveling on Moscow Road after the sun came up, and he saw the Jeep in a field.”

So so sad!

In addition to his role as attorney Garrett Wells in Boston Legal from 2005-2006, Mentell recently appeared in G-Force with Nicholas Cage last year.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Justin Mentell’s family, friends and fans. Wear your seat belts, people!
