Kid Rock is in mourning today after his personal assistant, Michael Sacha, 30, was found dead on the singer’s Nashville property on Monday after an ATV accident.
According to Billboard, the singer had a cookout on Sunday after which Sacha used an ATV around midnight to drive guests out to the main road to meet an Uber. He never returned. It wasn’t until Monday morning that anyone realized Sacha was missing and Kid went searching for him. Police were called after Kid discovered the accident.
Rock took to his website to express his grief.
I am beyond devastated to report that my personal assistant Mike Sacha passed away today in an ATV accident here in Nashville. He was a member of our family and one of the greatest young men I have ever had the pleasure to not only work with, but also to become friends with. I know I speak for us all in sharing my deepest condolences to his family. I can not imagine how they must feel. Myself, the band, our family, friends and co-workers are devastated over this loss. We were supposed to be back in Michigan today, but I am going to stay here with Mike until I can bring him home to his family. We’ve already been contacted by the press asking if it was me who was in the accident, so I want to stop any rumors before they spread. I’m asking everyone to please respect our and his families’ privacy in this difficult time. RIP Mike. We will never forget you, my friend.

My heart goes out to Michael Sacha’s family, friends, and everyone involved.
