CLEVELAND – It’s been one year since 22-year-old Cory Barron went to a concert at Progressive Field, and ended up falling down a trash chute.

His family still doesn’t believe the college graduate would have gone down the chute on his own and wants more answers.

Cory’s father, Matthew, told Fox 8 earlier this week the last year has been very tough on their whole family.

Investigators said Cory had been drinking and somehow went down a trash chute and died. His body was found a few days later in a landfill in Lorain County.

But his brother Clay and sister Britta, who were with him at the concert, say Cory appeared coherent and did not appear to be having any problems.

The family is asking anyone who may have seen Cory that night or have any information to call Crime Stoppers.

“There is a lot of things that are still unanswered,” Matthew Barron has said.

Richard McIntosh of Crime Stoppers says the caller will remain anonymous and a reward of up to $2,500 will be paid to anyone giving information leading to an arrest.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 216- 252-7463.
