Kansas City Chiefs fans found dead had cocaine, THC and three times lethal amount of fentanyl: reports


Initial toxicology reports on the three Kansas City Chiefs fans found frozen and dead in a friend’s yard found cocaine, THC — and three times the amount of fentanyl that is enough to kill, according to reports.

The families of David Harrington, Clayton McGeeney and Ricky Johnson — who were found dead outside their friend Jordan Willis’ Kansas City home on Jan. 9 — confirmed to WDAF that police have the initial reports on illicit drugs in the dead men’s systems.

Among the substances were cocaine and fentanyl, according to TMZ and NewsNation.

“A family member, who asked to remain anonymous, tells me cocaine, fentanyl, and THC showed up in the preliminary results,” NewsNation’s national correspondent Alex Caprariello wrote on X.

“The family source says level 10 fentanyl is enough to kill. The #KansasCity3 were at level 30.”

He later added that the information was “backed up and confirmed by a second, separate family source.”

Kansas City police have confirmed that they have been in touch with the families, according to NewsNation.

“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,” a police spokesperson told the outlet Thursday.

Drug use has been speculated as a contributing factor in the men’s deaths. Willis, an HIV scientist, checked himself into rehab for substance abuse after his friends were found dead, his parents have said.

Tony Kagay, the attorney for McGeeney’s family, said he has not personally seen the report but that it is “just the first step” in finding out what happened to the men.

“I don’t think that anyone familiar with this situation or this investigation thought that there wasn’t something else in play here and I think that the toxicology report is going to be the first step on many steps in the investigation as to who is responsible for these men’s tragic deaths,” he said Thursday night on “Cuomo.”

“If fentanyl was involved, which I don’t know at this point, then obviously … it’s a scourge, and it turns recreational drug use into a lethal situation,” Kagay added.

Police have stressed that the case is not being investigated as a homicide and that no foul play is suspected. However, some of the deceased men’s relatives believe Willis played a role in their deaths.

“[Harrington’s mother] and I are both convinced that Jordan Willis played a part in this somehow,” Harrington’s dad, Jon, said last week. “There were four of you in the house and now three of them are dead and you’re not. That doesn’t add up.”

Johnson’s brother Jonathan said he has been searching for answers since his sibling’s body was found in a lawn chair on the property.

On Monday, he told NewsNation that his brother may have unwittingly taken drugs and criticised police for appearing to know so little at this point in the probe.

Willis’ attorney John Picerno previously told the outlet that his client “did nothing wrong” and had no idea his friends were dead in his backyard.

He said Willis saw his friends leave his house before he fell asleep on the fateful night.

Autopsies are still pending to determine the cause of death and could take several weeks, according to the medical examiner.
