It’s the news Craig Morgan prayed he wouldn’t hear.
The body of Craig Morgan’s son, Jerry Greer, has been recovered from Kentucky Lake in Humphreys County, Tennessee — not far from the family’s home in Dickson, Tennessee.
According to “The Tennessean,” The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency confirmed the news Monday night, July 12.
The 19-year-old was tubing with friends Sunday, July 11, when he was involved in an accident. Authorities believe he hit a wave that contributed to the accident. Even though he was wearing a life jacket, he never resurfaced after going under water.
Jerry was a recent graduate of Dickson County High School. A candlelight vigil was held on July 11 for Greer immediately following football practice at the Dickson County High School stadium.
