CLEVELAND-- New questions being asked about the mysterious death of Cory Barron, a Fremont man who vanished from a concert at Progressive Field.

His family broke their silence and talked exclusively to the FOX 8 I-Team.  They have not spoken about Cory’s death since his body was found in landfill in Lorain County.

The family is desperate to finally find out what really happened during the summer concert at Progressive Field.

“We’re still missing that piece of the puzzle, what happened to Cory on July 18th,” said Britta Barron, Cory’s sister.

The 22-year-old college graduate went to the Jason Aldean concert at the ballpark July 18.  Investigators said he had been drinking, and somehow went down a trash chute and died. His body was later found in a landfill. There were no signs of foul play, but no answers either.

“No one believes that. No one who knows Cory or even has understanding of the circumstances of that night feels that this was just a tragic accident that Cory may have brought on upon himself,” said Cory’s father, Matthew.

The family is hoping anyone who was at the concert that night, who may have seen Cory or saw what happened, will contact police or Crime Stoppers. Anyone providing information can stay anonymous. Cory Barron’s family is not giving up and they need your help.  The family will offer a reward for any information that leads to closure in this case.
