Country singer Luke Bell, 32, was found dead in Arizona earlier this month, authorities said Tuesday.
The “Where Ya Been?” singer was found in Tucson on Friday, Officer Frank Magos said.
No additional details were provided, and officials said an investigation was ongoing.
Bell who had been reported missing was discovered near the site where he was last seen, the Tucson police told the New York Post.
Bell, a Cody, Wyoming, native, had been a ranch hand and spent “a few years of college” in Laramie before pursuing his musical career, according to a Spotify bio.
He released a self-titled debut album in 2012 and described his sound as “a little bit honky tonk and a little bit Texas, with healthy dashes of Bakersfield and vintage Nashville,
After dropping his sophomore album, “Don’t Mind If I Do,” in 2014, he opened for acts like Willie Nelson, Dwight Yoakam and Hank Williams Jr.
“It was a very different route to take; there aren’t any musicians in my family,” Bell told The Boot in 2016.
“College really wasn’t doing it for me, and I was looking for an independent platform to go learn, and music was that.”
