Police have officially received the results of the toxicology reports regarding the three Kansas City Chiefs fans who were found frozen in the backyard of a friend’s house following the AFC Championship game.
According to NewsNation, family memebers have confirmed that the three friends, David Harrington, Clayton McGeeney and Ricky Johnson, tested positive for cocaine, fentanyl and THC, which most likely would indicate a fentanyl overdose as the cause of death. Their fentanyl levels were reportedly 30, where level 10 is enough to be fatal.
This has now been backed up and confirmed by a second, separate family source.
After two days of searching, the bodies were discovered when McGeeney’s fiancée broke into Willis’ yard and found them.
Jordan Willis, the friends who survived and the owner of the house, reportedly checked himself into rehab for substance abuse prior to learning the news so, to me, it sort of sounds like he knew what the culprit could’ve been.
In 2023 alone, a record 112,000 people lost their lives to a fentanyl overdose, which more recently has been added to other drugs like cocaine and heroin in an effort to make them more potent.
The Families Want Answers
Willis is also well-respected HIV scientist, and he initially claimed that he had been asleep in his house for two days, and had no clue that his friends were locked outside of his house freezing to death. He also noted that he never received any texts or calls from his friends, and only on Facebook messenger. However, family members of the deceased say that they tried to get ahold of Willis over the couple of days they were missing, only to no response.
Not to mention, a fifth friend who was there that night said the four of them were inside on the couch watching Jeopardy before he left.
A handful of family members initially believed that Willis may have drugged the three friends after seeing something they weren’t supposed to see, and leaving them out in the freezing temperatures to die while they were unconscious.
Ricky Johnson’s brother, Jonathan Price, told NewsNation’s Chris Cuomo on Monday:
“As a brother, I’m looking into everything. Found on a lawn chair on the back porch, rather than all three laying flat, which paints a picture we didn’t have from the very beginning.”
Price also ripped the Kansas City Police for suggesting that the three may have unknowingly taken an unknown substance.
“I’m not saying there was or was not a crime, but if you immediately suspect no foul play, then you should have a story, you should have something to tell the families, and for no one to hear anything, that doesn’t make any sense.
It’s the same every day with the lack of answer and the inability to truly mourn without any cause. It’s just very difficult. I don’t think I’ll ever move on until, I mean, really, I’ll never move on, but especially not knowing what happened to my brother. I want to be involved more.
My mother and Ricky’s father, they want to be involved more and we’re just not getting answers from anybody, even the people that claim they’re doing the investigation.”
However, that seems to be exactly the case in this tragic scenario.
We have to stay on this story – this family needs some answers. Tonight, I had on the brother of Ricky Johnson, Jonathan Price — followed by Retired Forensic Pathologist/Medical Examiner, Dr. D’Michelle DuPre, MD to try and get us some answers. pic.twitter.com/eu8PRT4kI8
As for Willis, a close source to him says that he is struggling with all of the accusations pointed in his direction, saying:
“Not only is the whole country accusing him of murdering his friends without factual details, evidence or any charges at this time, but he also lost three close friends. He didn’t get to say goodbye or go to their funerals due to the circumstances of these wild speculations and accusations.
No one seems to be willing to wait for the results of the toxicology report or wait for any other facts from the police department from a case that is still under investigation to make these speculations. The vitriol is awful, and I think people are afraid to speak up for him because of how vicious people are with these speculations.”
Just a tragic, tragic situation all the way around.
