The discovery was made during the tail end of the music festival at around 5:36PM Sunday evening. Summer Camp, which is normally hosted over Memorial Day Weekend, had been rescheduled due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

This year, Summer Camp welcomed GRiZ, REZZ, and STS9, among a myriad of DJs and jam bands, and drew in nearly 20,000 attendees and campers to the rural town of Chillicothe for its 20th anniversary celebration.

A cause of death has not yet been made public.
