Three Kansas City Chiefs fans were found frozen to death in the backyard of their friend’s home, where they had gathered to watch a game — but the homeowner is insisting that he had “no knowledge” that their bodies had possibly been there for two days.

The bodies of David Harrington, 37, Ricky Johnson, 38, and Clayton McGeeney, 36, were found on the evening of Jan. 9 after the fiancée of one of the men requested a welfare check, Kansas City police told Fox Digital.

One man’s body was found on the back porch of the NW 83rd Terrace home, while the other two were discovered in the backyard.

But the homeowner had “no knowledge” that his friends were freezing to death on his property after they had watched Kansas City take on the LA Chargers in the last game of NFL regular season play on Jan. 7, police said.

“First and foremost, this case is 100% NOT being investigated as a homicide,” Kansas City Police Capt. Jake Becchina said.

“There have not been any arrests [or] charges, and no one is in custody. There are no specific threats or concerns for the surrounding community at this time,” Becchina added.

“The resident at the house was cooperative with detectives the day the deceased were discovered.”

Kansas City Police did not immediately respond to a request from The Post about why the men may have declined to seek shelter, or if they were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The Kansas City Police Department announced that the men’s bodies were discovered at 9:51 p.m. Jan. 9 after one man’s fiancée requested a welfare check.

Temperatures on Jan 7th and 8th mostly stayed in the low 30s, before plummeting into the teens on the afternoon of the 9th, according to Weather Underground.

Family and friends of the victims took to social media to lambast the man who invited his friends to watch the game.

“This man was inside his home alive while my friends were dead in his yard for lord knows how long,” Kaylee La Tier wrote in a Facebook post earlier this month.

“They were all hanging out since after the game Sunday. He KNEW people were looking for them. He read messages of people searching for him on Tuesday.”

They had all gathered at a friend’s house to watch the Kansas City Chiefs game against the Los Angeles Chargers on the night of Jan. 7.

“My husband banged on his door for 20 [minutes],” La Tier continued. “My friend banged on his door and then busted a window and yelled and announced her presence while she’s inside and still nothing from him? Then the cops come 10 [minutes] later and he comes out nonchalant in his boxers with an empty wine glass in hand??! Nothing is adding up. Dave, Clay and Ricky need and deserve justice.”

John Picerno, an attorney representing the homeowner, said his client had no idea his friends were dead until police knocked on his door.

Picerno said his client was sleeping with headphones on next to a loud fan when people came looking for his friends and didn’t see a message from one of their wives until after police contacted him.

The man also did not think it was “unusual for his friends to have left their cars there overnight,” according to the outlet.

Most likely died of hypothermia, well before they froze

It would strange if 1 car was still there for more than a day.....but several cars? No way he didn't think that was strange. Gotta be drugs involved.

I'm sorry, but this isn't making sense. They gathered at a friend's house to watch a football game. Did the friend lock them out of the house? They could never go inside to pee, get some more beer, to warm up, etc?

Even if the friend locked them out of the house while he fell asleep maybe, why don't they ever get back in their cars to warm up?

The homeowner never once thought to say bye to his friends? He had company over, he never once went to clean up the mess made? He never once went outside to see their cars still parked there?

Drugs had to have been involved. There's no way in hell that they couldn't know how cold it was unless they were on something.

Obviously speculating at this point is pointless but I would t be surprised if it turns out drugs were consumed maybe a bad batch/fentanyl issue and they died. Could be he actually didn’t know as he was black out somewhere else in the house or was afraid to call the cops

Not really. Everyone wants to blame everyone else.

Drugs and alcohol weren't forced down their throats.

They passed out, got locked out...dude inside was probably passed for days too.

They found them two days later. That dude was so drugged out that he didn’t notice or consider that his friends left their cars there for two days. Not just overnight. That’s severe drug abusers habits

If this dude is truly innocent then I am assuming it went like this: the homeowner and his friends went on a serious bender during the game. This dude passed out while his friends were still awake. The game ended around 7 something I think. This dude possibly slept that entire next day, only going to the bathroom or the kitchen, possibly(probably) doing more drugs and/or boozing to nurse his hangover. Xanax could be a big factor here.

He has a second hangover from trying to nurse his first hangover and he nurses it again the next day. All the while he just assumes that his friends had bolted either after the game or early that next morning while he was passed out. The last thing he'd ever expect is that they were frozen to death in his back yard. Never looked out to the front(or side?) of the house where their cars were, or his backyard. He just ignores the people messaging him looking for them because he is hungover, stoned, drunk, and doesn't want to deal with it, never considering that something actually bad had happened to them.


None of that is all that implausible, especially considering the police seem confident that there was no foul play involved. And what about motive? What motive could this dude possibly have had for letting his friends freeze to death?

The weirdest thing to me is that these dudes just let themselves freeze to death, but its entirely possible I suppose that they all got so trashed that they passed out and died from the exposure.

This is one of the craziest situations I've heard of.

The only thing that makes sense is that they were so intoxicated that they passed out and froze or they overdoses before that.
