The brother of a Kansas City Chiefs fan whose body was found in a friend's backyard spoke out Thursday about the investigation, insisting there are still many questions.

Ricky Johnson, 38 years old. Clayton McGeeney, 36 years old. and David Harrington, 37, were found dead outside his friend Jordan Willis' rental home earlier this month after attending a Sunday watch party.

Willis claimed he didn't know the men were outside and only discovered the body when police showed up several days later. His lawyer claims he slept for nearly 48 hours after the party, as his deceased fan's family tried to contact him and even showed up at his home.

But Johnson's brother, Jonathan Pryce, explained why he doesn't think Willis' story adds up on Fox & Friends as investigators try to figure out what happened. did.

“There are still too many questions that need to be answered, and no one can answer them,” Price told Ainsley Earhart on Thursday. “And to be honest, with the exception of the fifth one, Jordan, he was there, but after a certain amount of time, he wasn't there.”

“It just doesn't add up,” he continued. “If you have to change your story, how do you know when and where you're telling the truth? It makes no sense.”

A fifth man, whose name has not been released, was at the home on January 7th. FOX4 Kansas City Willis and the three others were still awake when he left his home on Northwest 83rd Terrace that night. He stressed that he was not the last person to see the men alive.

His lawyer, Andrew Talzi, told the outlet that his client arrived at the residence to watch a game between the Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers around 7 p.m. and left around midnight.

Tarzi said the other four were awake and watching Jeopardy when his client left.

Willis' attorney, John Picerno, previously told Fox News Digital that the fifth man left his client's home first, then said goodbye to the other men before going to sleep. But Picerno has been criticized for discrepancies since a previous interview with FOX4 in which he said his client fell asleep in the house while four people were there.

He said his client slept for nearly two days after the rally while the deceased man's family tried to contact his loved ones.

Earhart said Willis is known as an accomplished scientist.

“That part doesn't make sense to me,” Price said. “Especially when you appear to be a responsible person, in a science that seems very complex…a responsible enough person to get a Ph.D. …if you're that type of person to sleep… “I guess Monday was a work day, but if you work from home…I don't see how that is possible. You can never do that.”

One victim's fiance reportedly eventually broke into the home through the back door after she lost contact with her husband. She is said to have found one of her bodies before calling the police.

“She saw someone on the back porch and immediately called the police, and when the police showed up, Jordan answered the door at that time as if he had no idea anything was going on,” Price said. said.

“From that point on…we just don't get anything real from him,” he continued.

Kansas City Police are currently awaiting toxicology results as they continue to investigate this tragedy. The incident is not being investigated as a possible homicide, and Willis has not been named as a suspect in the case.

Mr Price expressed his shock at the tragic and unexpected death of his brother.

“I can't speak for the whole family, but it was very difficult for me,” Price said. “Until we know what happened, I don't think it will ever fully heal, and it will never fully heal. I had a lot of respect for my brother. I looked up to him.”
