A new development in the case of 3 Kansas City Chiefs fans found frozen in a friend’s backyard sheds light on a timeline.
The community was left in disbelief and shock after the unexpected discovery of three frozen bodies, prompting intense scrutiny and speculation about the mysterious circumstances of their deaths.
The deceased individuals, David Harrington, Ricky Johnson, and Clayton McGeeney, all in their thirties, were found outside the home of their friend, Jordan Willis, just two days after they had gathered to watch the Chiefs take on the Los Angeles Chargers for their last regular-season game.
McGeeney’s fiancée, concerned when she couldn’t reach him, attempted to contact Willis, the host of the gathering but was unsuccessful. She went to the home of Willis and knocked. “When there was no answer at the door, she then decided to investigate further and broke into Willis’ basement, where she found a lifeless body on the back porch.
The initial police report indicated no obvious signs of foul play observed at or near the crime scene. John Picerno, the attorney for Willis, said his client had no idea that his friends were outside of his house. Willis claimed to have slept for nearly 48 hours after the NFL party.
Picerno said Willis never left his home once he got back home Sunday. That’s why he didn’t notice the victims’ cars were still there.
Recently a fifth man who attended the watch party has been identified in a new report as Alex Weamer-Lee. Weamer-Lee went to high school with the group who according to his attorney Andrew Talge, arrived at Willis’ home at about 7 p.m. Jan. 7 and left around midnight while the four other men were still awake and watching “Jeopardy!”
This helps with a timeline and contradicts Jordan Willis’s version of events.
Picerno’s statement for Willis says he saw his four friends out at the end of the night, then went to sleep on his couch. The situation has become so tense that Willis has moved out of his rental home due to fears of retaliation.
Kansas City police are still waiting on the results from medical examiners to determine the cause of death. It could be weeks before they get results from an autopsy and other tests.
