On September 27, Eddie Montgomery and family announced the heart wrenching news that their son passed away. Their 19-year-old son had an accident leading him to life support at a hospital in Kentucky.
The family has now come forward to share how Hunter died, in hopes it can help others out.
Eddie’s ex-wife Tracy Nunan wrote the following on Facebook:
“When a family asks for privacy, there is a reason,” wrote Nunan in a statement to People and also posted on her Facebook page. “Grieving the loss of a child is the most heart-wrenching experience any parent can imagine. It defies description. Since the media refuses to respect our request for privacy, I’m taking another route in hope that we might get some peace for our grieving, and more important, in hope that Hunter’s story might help others. Our son died of an overdose. We believe it was accidental and will continue to believe that. We know that he needed help. Maybe Hunter’s – and our family’s – pain will help another family avoid this. Not a day will go by without our missing him. Now that your curiosity is satisfied, please have the respect to stop hounding us. Instead, take our story and use it to help others.”
Condolences go out to the family during this hard time.
