BOONE COUNTY Ky. (FOX19) - The body of a Navy sailor and Conner High School grad will return on Tuesday after he was killed in a mid-August car crash.
Brent Sturgeon, 30, was stationed in San Diego where he died on Aug. 19 in a car crash, according to a Facebook post.
Sturgeon, who graduated from Conner High School in 2008, enlisted in the Navy the following year, the Patriot Guard website says.
