Earlier that day, Glenn Jr. had been tweeting about his father, Terry Glenn, who died almost two years ago to the day in a horrific car crash on the way home from a Dallas Cowboys game on Nov. 20, 2017. Toxicology later revealed Glenn Sr. had a .165 blood-alcohol level at the time of the crash.
Glenn Jr.’s last tweet said, “I miss him so much…” and referenced Thanksgiving as his dad’s favorite holiday.
A family spokesperson released a statement confirming Glenn Jr.’s death, via WBNS-10 TV.
“Kimberly Combs-Matthew’s son – Terry Glenn, Jr. – died tragically on Thanksgiving Day in Columbus, Ohio of an apparent accidental overdose.
