Body of Country Singer Craig Strickland Found at Kaw Lake


Authorities have announced that the body of country singer Craig Strickland was found on Monday at Kaw Lake.

Strickland was the lead singer of the Arkansas-based country-rock band Backroad Anthem. He disappeared during severe storms on Dec. 27 while on a duck hunting trip with friend Chase Morland.

The pair’s capsized boat was found that day. Morland’s body was recovered from the lake on Dec. 28.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol Marine Enforcement Division found Strickland’s body Monday morning, authorities said.  “Strickland’s body was located within the original search area known as Bear Creek Cove.”

The singer’s wife shared the news on Twitter.  She wrote, “#Craig Strickland 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.”
