What happened after a television evening with American football three weeks ago remains unclear.
Three of the men never returned home. They were found dead two days later.
It was Sunday a little over three weeks ago, and a group of friends gathered in Kansas City, USA to watch their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, finish the series against the Los Angeles Chargers in the NFL.
After the match, five friends continued the party at the house of one of them – Jordan Willis. It is not clear whether this is where they watched the match, or whether they went there after it ended CNN.
What happened next is a mystery. Three of them, David Harrington (37), Ricky Johnson (38), and Clayton McGeeney (36), never returned home.
Two days later, on January 9, Clayton McGeeney's fiancée returned to the house where the men had finished fight night. No one opened the door when she rang, and then she burst into the house through the basement. “On the veranda behind the house I found a dead person,” she writes. Kansas City Star. Then I called the police.
When the police arrived at the scene, they found two other men dead in the garden of the house.
John Picerno, Jordan Willis' attorney, says his client went to bed before his friends got home.
– In the middle of the night he felt tired and said he would sleep on the sofa. He said “get it” to his friends and thought they would walk out the front door. That was the last time he saw them. Picerno says he had no idea they were at the back of the house until police got there Tuesday evening.
Relatives say the three victims were childhood friends. Ricky Johnson was the father of three daughters. Clayton McGeeney also had children.
