(Tennessean) Truett Foster McKeehan, the oldest son of Christian rapper TobyMac, died Wednesday in Nashville, a representative confirmed to the USA TODAY Network – Tennessee. He was 21.
The Nashville Fire Department responded late Wednesday morning to a report of a person in cardiac arrest at a home in the city’s Radnor neighborhood. McKeehan was pronounced dead on arrival.
McKeehan’s cause and manner of death remain under investigation, the Metro Nashville Police Department said. An autopsy will be conducted at the medical examiner’s office in Nashville.
TobyMac, known also as Kevin Michael McKeehan, postponed the remaining dates of a week-long Canadian tour to return home to his wife and other children in Franklin, Tennessee.
In a statement, TobyMac said his son “had joy that took the room when he entered.”
“He was a magnetic son and brother and friend. If you met him you knew him, you remembered him. His smile, his laugh, the encouragement he offered with words or even without. He had an untamable grand personality and dreams to match.” [To keep reading, click here].
