At around noon on Friday, November 13, deputies from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office were asked to complete a welfare check on Tucker. He had a history of health issues and had not been seen for about three weeks.

Deputies learned through further investigation that the male was a known trapper, which led them to a slough near East Lake Mary Road southwest of Alexandria. A local conservation officer checked the slough with his own kayak and located Tucker's body partially submerged in the water next to a small kayak and trapping equipment.

No foul play is suspected.
