Singer Craig Strickland Found Dead After Missing On December 27

Craig Strickland, the country singer who went missing December 27 on a duck hunting trip, is dead.

According to TMZ, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol Marine Enforcement Division found the 29-year-old’s body Monday morning in an area called Bear Creek Cove.

Authorities did not give details on the cause or manner of death, but his friend Chase Morland — with whom he went hunting — also died. His body was found along with their capsized boat.

The two had been hunting a severe storm. Chase tweeted before the trip, “In we don’t come back, @BackroadCRAIG and I are going right through Winter Storm Goliath to kill ducks in Oklahoma.”
