Swamp People family is currently mourning the loss of one of their members. Randy Edwards, son of Junior Edwards and younger brother of Willie Edwards, was killed in a car crash on Saturday.
Died at 35
One of the fan favorite cast members of the gator hunting series, Randy, was 35. The news was announced through Junior and Willie Edwards Facebook page, but they didn’t reveal further details while asking for privacy in a hard time. His death in a car crash was also confirmed by his former agent, Amy Berteau on Sunday morning.
According to Louisiana State Police, Randy failed to navigate a left-hand curve while he was driving his car on LA 75 south of LA 3066. Reportedly, his vehicle traveled off the right side of the roadway, collided with a utility pole and overturned, ejecting him out. Troopers are still investigating the crash. People are expressing their deep grief and heartfelt condolences to the Edwards family on social media.
Born and raised in the swamps of Louisiana, he started hunting and fishing from a very young age. He appeared in Swamp People in season 1, 3 and 4. His brother, Willie is steering the Edwards family pride alone in the show. He was married and had three children: two sons and a daughter. His kids seem to be following the family tradition already.
Rest in peace Randy!
