TUCSON, ARIZONA: Country singer Luke Bell died on August 26, 2022, just days after authorities were notified of his disappearance. Bell, 32, was spotted in Tucson after traveling to a gig with musician pal Matt Kinman. The cause of death was finally determined by his autopsy after more than three weeks of investigation.

The ‘where have you been?’ The singer’s autopsy results claim he accidentally overdosed on fentanyl, The Sun reports. The autopsy report, received from the Pima County Medical Examiner’s office, states that Bell has been reportedly diagnosed with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. The report read: “This initially unidentified 32-year-old man was reportedly found unresponsive by a passerby in a shaded area of ​​a parking garage. Drug paraphernalia were found at the crime scene.”


A toxicology report found that Bell’s blood alcohol level was 0.076 when he died. “The Bullfighter” singer was reported missing on August 20 and found dead on August 29, according to Saving Country Music. Kinman confirmed the death of the ‘Sometimes’ singer to Saving Country Music.

Bell’s family previously told TMZ, “We have lost our beloved son, brother and friend and we are heartbroken. Luke had a gentle heart, a wandering spirit, and a musical talent that he was fortunate to share with us and the world. We are so grateful to his friends and fans for embracing Luke and his music. We want to thank all of Luke’s fans, friends and family who have shared stories and photos of happy times with him.”

In a Facebook tribute, the band Mike and the Moonpies said: “It has just been announced that Luke Bell has passed away and we are heartbroken by the news ten years ago, right down to the clothes on his back. The man (and his music) made an impression. He was a real traveling troubadour out there on that lost highway. Do yourself a favor and put some Luke Bell tunes in his memory tonight. Rest in peace, friend.”

The country singer grew up in Cody, Wyoming and eventually enrolled at the University of Wyoming to pursue his studies. Over time, Bell understood his love for music and made the decision to relocate to Austin, Texas, where he could effectively pursue a career in country music.

Bell eventually made his way to Nashville where, according to The Boot, he landed a record deal with Thirty Tigers in 2016. His self-titled album was released shortly after agreeing to the deal, and he later worked with artists such as Langhorne Slim, Margo Price and Alabama Shakes. Bell won Best Honky-Tonk Man at the Dale Watson-sponsored Ameripolitan Awards in February 2018.
