Christian rapper TobyMac’s oldest son, Truett Foster McKeehan, died suddenly at his Tennessee home on Tuesday night or Wednesday. He was 21 years old.
“Toby was traveling back from Canada and did not get home to be with his family until after midnight (Wednesday) night so there is no statement,” a representative told The Tennessean. “We just ask that everyone please be respectful of their privacy during this time and allow them to grieve their loss.”
A cause of death is still under investigation, and an autopsy will be conducted at the Nashville medical examiner’s office. TobyMac has postponed his remaining Canadian tour dates to return home to his family.
Last year, the singer released a song called “Scars” that detailed his relationship with his son after Truett had moved out of their family home. Truett was the oldest of five children, and is survived by his mother Amanda and siblings Marlee, Judah, Moses and Leo.
