The preliminary toxicology results for the three Kansas City men found deceased in the snow following a game day gathering have been disclosed, according to a family member.

The victims, identified as David Harrington, Clayton McGeeney, and Ricky Johnson, had their toxicology report shared with their families, as confirmed by Harrington's father to Fox News Digital.

Kansas City Police Department Captain Jacob Becchina, in his statement to Fox News Digital, clarified that no additional information or reports related to the case have been shared with the media. "The case remains an ongoing death investigation. Both KCPD Detectives and the Platte County Prosecutors Office have been in touch with the deceased men's families and remain in contact with them as the investigation unfolds," Becchina stated. He further added that any records linked to the case, including toxicology or medical examiner reports, would remain confidential until the conclusion of the investigation.

The toxicology report is expected to reveal the presence of any substances, including alcohol and drugs, in the systems of the deceased at the time of their demise.

Forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, in his conversation with Fox News Digital, suggested that the information was likely leaked to the families from a police or justice department source. He added that it is standard procedure for families to be informed of toxicology results prior to public release.

However, Dr. Baden cautioned that the detection of drugs in the victims' systems does not necessarily imply that they were the cause of death. "The question now is whether they died of an overdose or hypothermia – you can't tell from the [released information] what the units are," Baden stated.

He further explained that the data indicates drug consumption, but it does not confirm death due to exposure to the snow. "They [likely] died after taking drugs and a low level of drugs that makes them high, one normally sleeps off," he concluded.
