Tragic.

As we reported, country singer Craig Morgan's 19-year-old son Jerry Greer was found dead in the water after a tubing accident with friends on Kentucky Lake back in July. So incredibly sad.

According to the autopsy results, the coroner has now confirmed Greer died from drowning — stating that the teen tested positive for marijuana and a low level of alcohol at the time of the accident.

The Assistant Medical Examiner Erin Carney told The Tennessean that Greer was riding on an inner tube behind a boat when the tube flipped, sending Greer under the water. He never came back up despite wearing a life jacket.

Our hearts continue to be with Jerry's loved ones during this unbelievably devastating time.

Country singer Craig Morgan has understandably cancelled the remainder of his July shows as his family mourns the tragic death of his 19-year-old son Jerry Greer, per the musician's website.

The recent high school graduate was remembered in his obituary as being a "dedicated son, brother, and friend:"

"Jerry was the smile that instantly lit up any room. He was a superstar without even trying. He was a natural athlete that accomplished what most spend a lifetime attempting to achieve. He was a devoted and dedicated son, brother and friend. He loved his God, his family, his friends and his country more than anything. His passions were football, soccer and the outdoors. He will be greatly missed by everyone who came in contact with him. He will be forever in our thoughts, in our words and in our hearts."

So touching.

Memorial services for the teen are set to take place this weekend in the family's home state of Tennessee. A visitation will be held at Walnut Street Church of Christ in Dickson on Friday, followed by a funeral service at Covenant Presbyterian Church at 11 a.m. on Saturday.

Jerry is survived by his superstar father, mother Karen Greer; his sister Marisa Davis, niece Bailey and nephew Jameson; his sister Alexandra Beaird, her husband Ryan and nephew Cruze; his brother Kyle Greer and his fiancé Chelsea Rogers; and his brother Wyatt Greer.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the Morgan family and anyone affected by Jerry's unexpected death.

What's especially scary is that the body of water where Jerry disappeared can reach depths of fifteen feet — boating accident expert Matt Majors also revealed that the search area is between five to ten acres:
