Yesterday, we learned of the heartbreaking, yet also incredibly strange news that three friends/Kansas City Chiefs fans were discovered frozen to death in the backyard of their friend’s rental property on January 9th, two days after they were there to watch the Chiefs play the Chargers.
The deceased included 37-year-old David Harrington, 38-year-old Ricky Johnson, and 36-year-old Clayton McGeeney.
Perhaps the most baffling part is that Jordan Willis, the friend who was inside the house, claims that he had no idea his friends had been freezing to death in his backyard.
But now, according to FOX 4,a fifth friend who was present that night has shared more details about the events before he left, prior to his friends freezing outside.
The fifth friend, who has chosen to remain anonymous, says that the three victims were alive before he left around midnight, and he wasn’t the last person to see them alive.
The fifth friend’s attorney, Andrew Talge, said that when his client left, the other four friends were watching Jeopardy.
This story contradicts the statement from attorney John Picerno, which said that Willis saw his friends out at the end of the night and fell asleep on the couch.
Picerno also said that Willis, who allegedly slept for two straight days on the couch, only received messages from the three friends on Facebook Messenger, and did not get texts or calls.
However, according to Talge, his client received a text from McGeeney’s fiancée and from Johnson’s mother, asking about their safety.
Needless to say, this whole situation looks incredibly shady for Willis. Not to mention, Picerno says Willis claimed to leave his house periodically on the 8th and 9th, but then changed his story to say that he only left his bedroom a few times.
The Kansas City Police were sure to say that the incident is not being investigated as a homicide. The Department is currently waiting on autopsy and toxicology reports.
