The mystery of the 3 dead Kansas City Chiefs fans discovered frozen outside a friend’s home, is finally solved, at least according to the toxicology report, released by the medical examiner’s office.

On January 7, a group of friends gathered at the home of Jordan Willis, an HIV scientist, to watch the Chiefs play.

After the game, Ricky Johnson, David Harrington, 37, and Clayton McGeeney, 36, disappeared for two days until they were found by police dead in the backyard of their friend’s home.

The discovery of their bodies was covered by every major news organization in the country. It mystified us. We all had a lot of questions. Murder? It most certainly seemed to fit.

Even though the police insisted they didn’t suspect foul play. Fingers were pointed at Willis, the scientist, who claimed he slept on the couch for two days after the football party at his house. His lawyer denied Willis had anything to do with the death of his friends.

But relatives of the deceased publicly questioned the police handling of the investigation.

Jonathan Price, brother of Ricky Price, has been especially vocal about how the police are handling the investigation. He said in a media interview that he doesn’t believe investigators are looking closely enough into Willis. Ricky Price was found dead in a chair in Willis’s backyard.

For over a month since the news of their deaths, we have been waiting for the tox report to be released. And finally, we have the results. The medical examiner found traces of both cocaine and fentanyl in their bodies. The cause of death has not been announced yet, but accidental overdose seems most likely.

Wills, the only survivor, has checked into rehab to address his substance abuse issues.
