Trenton “Trent” Lehrkamp is a 19-year-old Glynn Academy High School graduate.

At this time, details on Trenton’s personal life are unclear because he often stays out of the spotlight and off social media.

On March 21, Trenton was hanging out with a group of teenagers on St. Simons Island when he was involved in an alleged hazing incident.

While not much is known about the incident, police said that three minors brought him to the hospital around 8.30pm in a white Jeep Wrangler.

He had a small bruise on his left shoulder, spray paint “all over his body and hair”, and his clothes were soaked in urine, according to a report.
