After missing for nine days, Luke Bell, a prominent figure in country music, died at the age of 32.
Matt Kinman, a friend and fellow musician of Bell, was the first to confirm the details with Saving Country Music. As a result of his late friend’s battle with bipolar disorder, Kinman claimed that Bell’s mental condition took a turn for the worse lately. As they were getting something to eat, Bell just suddenly vanished, Kinman claimed. The fans greatly mourn for the loss of an inspirational country music singer-songwriter.
The musician was found on Monday in block 5500 of E. Grant Road in Midtown Tucson, not far from where he had vanished.
The cause of death is not yet released to the public. The Pima County Medical Examiner and Coroner’s office declined to offer any other details about Bell’s passing.
He launched his country music debut with the release of his album “Don’t Mind If I Do” in 2014. He soon inked a record deal with Thirty Tigers in 2016. Soon after getting a record deal, he put out a self-titled album that won him plaudits from reviewers. His rise to popularity was halted, though, when mental health issues surfaced.
And although Luke Bell only released one album, he was able to capture a time in country music, an atmosphere, and a mood that even the finest and most skilled artists today are unable to match.
