Devon Cotton, former KHS student, died at Rockford Beach Park in Jefferson County May 31. Devon was swimming with his friends when he was pulled under a current and drowned, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch. Missouri Highway Patrol troopers searched for Devon until a resident from the area located his body less than one mile away from where he went under.

Family member Jeff Watts set up a GoFundMe page to help provide for funeral expenses and support Devon’s mother, Jada Cotton. You can donate to the page by clicking here.
