Kansas City Chiefs fans deaths: 'Walter White narrative' about party host is 'out of control,' source says
Fox News contributor Dr. Michael Baden joined 'Fox & Friends' to discuss his take on the report and what he thinks led to the deaths of the three NFL fans.
Despite claims to the contrary, Kansas City Chiefs fan Jordan Willis was not nicknamed "the chemist" for manufacturing drugs in high school, a source close to him told Fox News Digital, shooting back at theories implicating the career scientist in his three friends' deaths.
Clayton McGeeney, 36, Ricky Johnson, 38, and David Harrington, 37, were discovered frozen and dead in his Kansas City backyard on Jan. 9, two days after they were all last seen alive inside Willis' house for an NFL watch party.
The men's loved ones have come forward with theories that Willis played an active role in their demise, with McGeeney's cousin Caleb McGeeney telling NewsNation that "all [Willis'] friends knew him" as "the chemist."
"Jordan’s ‘the chemist,’ bro. Jordan’s ‘the chemist,'" Caleb McGeeney said. "It was easy for them to go have fun, but he f---ed up, he made a mistake."
But the source close to Willis insisted that he had never been referred to by that name, and that the career scientist is "not a chemist by trade."

"It is incredibly disappointing that his job is being used against him to further the real-life Walter White-type narrative that people are trying to create," the source said, referring
