Missouri police have obtained an early toxicology report in the case of three Kansas City Chiefs fans found dead in the backyard of their friend’s home.
The three friends were together to watch the last Chiefs football game of the regular season on Jan. 7 when they stopped responding to their loved ones. Two days later, their bodies were found, but police said they were not investigating the incident as a homicide.
The homeowner later claimed through his attorney that he had not noticed the dead bodies of his friends in the backyard and also revealed that a fifth person had been at the party but left.
On Wednesday, family members of the deceased said that they had met with police and were satisfied with what they were told about the progress of the investigation.
Thursday, police said they had received the toxicology report but refused to release any further details.
“There have been no additional details of this case revealed to any media, nor are there any plans to at this time. The case remains an ongoing death investigation,” said a police spokesperson. “Both KCPD Detectives and the Platte County Prosecutor’s Office have been in touch with the deceased men’s families and remain in contact with them as the investigation unfolds.”
TMZ reported that sources told them cocaine and fentanyl were detected in the bodies of the deceased. They added that a complete toxicology report might show indications of other drugs as well.
A cousin of one of the victims said in an interview that he believed the owner of the home had provided drugs to the group and accidentally killed the three. He also claimed that the man had been allegedly providing drugs before the incident — to the point that he was referred to as “the chemist” by his friends.
“It was easy for them to go have fun, but he f***ed up, he made a mistake,” said Caleb McGeeney.
“Jordan is somebody that is known from high school as, like, creating drugs for people to make them feel better in certain situations. ‘Okay, well, you wanna do this? I’m gonna make this for you, I’m gonna make this for you’ and handing them out,” he claimed.
An attorney for the homeowner, Jordan Willis, did not respond to a request from the New York Post for a response to the allegations.
