Former Rock Star Kid Rock Dead At 44

Robert Ritchie, aka Kid Rock passed away this morning at age 44. Kid Rock was a big time musician in the late 90s with hit songs like Bawitdaba and Picture, which he performed with Sheryl Crow.

Police were called to Ritchie’s home shortly after midnight after a noise complaint. Upon arriving at the home the officers noticed smoke pouring from the house. The fire department was called and the fire was subdued and upon entering the structure a body was found and identified as Kid Rock.

The fire might have actually been caused by an explosion according to officer Richard Black. Chemicals and over the counter medicine may be the cause of the fire the officer stated.

“If I had to guess, Kid Rock was making meth and something went wrong.”

An investigation into the situation is ongoing.
