Grandson of T. Boone Pickens dies in Texas

A 21-year-old grandson of Texas oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens died Tuesday after being rushed to a hospital in Fort Worth, according to police and a family spokesman.

Thomas Boone Pickens IV, who went by Ty, was a junior at Texas Christian University. Pickens’ spokesman, Jay Rosser, called the death an “unspeakable family tragedy” and asked that the family be allowed to grieve in private.

Neither Rosser nor Fort Worth police have said what may have caused the death.

Officers were dispatched after getting a report of a dead person at an off-campus location around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, police spokeswoman Cpl. Tracey Knight said. Police said Ty Pickens was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
