2. Jake Thomas, Lizzie McGuire
Lizzie’s younger brother Matt switched from harmless pranks to rape. He guest starred on an episode of Criminal Minds as a member of a trio who kidnap, chase, rape, and murder women. To be fair, he didn’t know one of his accomplices went rogue and killed them, but still. He ends up beaten to death with a baseball bat because karma’s a bitch.
5. Nick Spano, Even Stevens
Donnie, the hilariously dimwitted older brother, guest starred on an episode of NCIS. His character is accused of stalking an ex-girlfriend, and is murdered later. Turns out, he was part of a group who stole $4 million. Oh, and he was a freakin’ Marine.
7. Margo Harshman, Even Stevens
Louis’ friend/love interest snagged a recurring role on NCIS. She played Timothy McGee’s girlfriend who gets hit with shrapnel after an aerial drone attack. Turns out, she became paralyzed after shrapnel severed her spinal cord. Welp, that blows.
Fun fact: Timothy McGee (played by Sean Murray) was Thackery Binx in Hocus Pocus.
8. David Henrie, Wizards of Waverly Place
The older brother guest starred on an episode of Cold Case. He played a punk-ass kid who shoots an 8-year-old girl point blank because she knew his dad beat him. (In his eyes, she and her friend were causing him grief, and he took out his insecurities on them.) Set in 1975, the episode deals with racism. Ironically, it has a semi-happy ending.
9. Jake T. Austin, Wizards of Waverly Place
The younger brother guest starred on an episode of Law and Order: SVU. Although his character did nothing illegal, his girlfriend helped murder her parents because her dad raped her. Her going to prison will probably put a damper on that relationship.
10. Jennifer Stone, Wizards of Waverly Place
Harper Finkle guest starred on one bat-shit crazy Exorcist-style episode of Body of Proof. Basically, her character poisoned her sisters with PCP because she wanted Daddy all to herself. When things go south, she tries committing suicide, but the gun misfires.
11. Lee Thompson Young, The Famous Jett Jackson
Jett Jackson guest starred on an episode of CSI: NY. His character is murdered by drug dealers, although he wasn’t an addict. He was a good guy who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Bonus: Young played a series regular on Rizzoli & Isles from 2010 until his unfortunate passing in 2013. RIP.
12. Eric von Detten, Brink!
This soul skater guest starred on an episode of Law and Order: SVU. His character had been accused of rape by two different women, and is arrested for killing one of them. His grandmother tells the cops he did it because of his abusive father, but PLOT TWIST, she actually was the criminal mastermind involved in making her grandson a monster.
