Luke Bell, country singer found dead at 32 after being reported missing in Arizona

Country singer Luke Bell, known for songs “Where Ya Been?” and “The Bullfighter,” has been found dead at just 32.

The Tucson Police Department confirmed in a statement on Tuesday that Luke Bell was found dead (after being reported missing more than a week earlier) in Tucson, Arizona, on Friday.

The police continued, “At this time, the investigation is ongoing.” No other information was provided.

He was found dead on Monday close to where he was reported missing on August 20. His friend Matt Kinman, a fellow country artist, was the one who reported his death the very first to the website Saving Country Music.

Naomi Judd autopsy confirms the singer died by suicide, and the family asks for respectful privacy.

Luke Bell’s short bio:

According to Saving Country Music, Bell, who was born on January 27, 1990, got his start in the music industry while performing at a local pub during his college years. He was raised in Cody, Wyoming, but his music took him to Tennessee, Texas, and Louisiana for a while.

His 2014 album “Don’t Mind If I Do,” which he released on Bandcamp, was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee. He also released a self-titled album in 2016. In 2021, Luke Bell released his last song “Jealous Guy.”

“It was a very different route to take; there aren’t any musicians in my family,” Luke Bell told The Boot in 2016. “College wasn’t doing it for me, & I was looking for an independent platform to go learn, and music was that.”

As for finding his drive and being on the road, he said, “I live in the day, and I count smiles. That’s it.”

“Life’s not that bad. The downside, in some ways, is I don’t have a wife and kids, but at the same time, it’s pretty ideal right now,” he said. “I just travel around to other cities and hang out with other people.”
