“Not only is the entire country accusing him of murdering his friends without factual details, evidence or any charges at this time, but he’s also lost three close friends,” the source said. Fox Nation.

‘He couldn’t say goodbye or go to their funerals because of the circumstances of these wild speculations and accusations.

“No one seems willing to wait for the results of the toxicology report or wait for any other facts from the police department from a case still under investigation to make these speculations.”

They further claimed that Willis’ family only learned of what happened after local news media contacted them.

The family did not know if Willis was among the deaths.

They also contested claims that the scientist had told people that his friends had frozen to death in his garden after police arrived at his home.

‘What was missing from that story was context. He never once said that his friends froze to death to anyone,’ they added.

This revelation comes two days after Willis’ father issued statements on his behalf on January 26.

TIMELINE OF EVENTS

January 7: The three men go to Jordan Willis’ house to watch the Kansas City Chiefs game against the Los Angeles Chargers, which starts at 3:25 pm CT.

At some point during the night, Willis goes upstairs to sleep, leaving the three men and another unnamed man hanging around his house.

January 8: Jordan Willis claims he didn’t leave his house today, so he didn’t realize the victims’ cars were outside.

Loved ones of the missing men begin trying to contact Willis, who is unresponsive.

January 9: Clayton McGeeney’s fiancee breaks into the house screaming Willis’ name after two days of no communication with her partner.

She finds one of the bodies on the back porch.

At 21:51, three bodies are found at the property after police conduct a welfare check.

‘They could (have gone) out there, it was freezing and cold that night. I don’t know how many cars they came in; there were three of them, and there were only two cars left on the street.

‘They could have decided they wanted to go back to his house for some reason, people leave the house without coats all the time, no matter how cold it is, so I can’t answer that statement.

“(Jordan) doesn’t know what happened to them, and he never saw them again to the point where they walked to the front door and left his house.”

Weamer-Lee, who shortens his name to Lee, says he waved them off at 2 a.m. before sleeping on the couch and spending the next two days in the house, thinking nothing of the fact that their cars were still outside was not

Lee, a 37-year-old flooring contractor, lives in a rented house in another part of the city. When DailyMail.com arrived to ask him questions about the fateful night, a man who answered an intercom doorbell claimed he was not there and could not discuss January 7.
