Craig Strickland Dead


Craig Strickland was found dead on Monday, Gossip Cop can confirm. The country music singer went missing on December 27 while on a duck hunting trip with his friend Chase Morland on Oklahoma’s Kaw Lake. Strickland was 29.

Strickland and Morland’s boat capsized after being caught out in a winter storm. While Morland’s body was recovered last week, Strickland was still missing at the time, but the Backroad Anthem singer’s body has now been discovered as well. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol Marine Enforcement Division found Strickland in an area called Bear Creek Cove. Authorities have yet to give specific details on the cause of the singer’s death.

Shortly before the friends embarked on their hunting trip, Morland tweeted, “In case we don’t come back, @BackroadCRAIG and I are going right through Winter Storm Goliath to kill ducks in Oklahoma. #IntoTheStorm.” Eerily, Strickland retweeted the sadly prophetic message.

Strickland is survived by his wife Helen, who kept up hope for his recovery and praised the work of his searchers on social media. Following the news of his death, Helen tweeted, “#CraigStrickland was found today. He is safe with his Father in Heaven. Thank you Lord for leading us to him today. I will praise you, Amen.”
