OHIO — The Lorain County coroner was expected to perform an autopsy Wednesday on Cory Barron, the man whose body was found at a landfill days after he was last seen at a Jason Aldean show at Progressive Field.
The landfill was located in New Russia Township, 35 miles away from Cleveland. A worker discovered his body Tuesday just after a truck had delivered a load.
Barron, 22, of Fremont, still had his ID and concert ticket in his pocket.
Investigators say they are looking into the possibility that Barron may have fallen down a trash chute five or six stories into a dumpster at Progressive Field. The contents inside were later taken to the landfill.
Barron was last seen around 9:30 p.m. Friday. His family reported him missing early Saturday.
The Cleveland Indians released the following statement on Tuesday:
“The Cleveland Indians are saddened by the news of Cory Barron’s untimely death and wish to extend their sincere condolences to the Barron family and friends. We are cooperating with the authorities in their investigation and do not have additional comment at this time.”
Jason Aldean also tweeted condolences to Barron’s loved ones.
