Father Finds Former NFL Player Dead in Ransacked Detroit Home

The father of former Buffalo Bills linebacker Robert Eddins found his son and another man shot to death Tuesday, Dec. 20, in the basement of the ex-NFL player’s home.

After not hearing from his son for 24 hours, Eddins’ father went to check on his son. He entered the Detroit home around 6 p.m. and found the place in shambles, according to WDIV Local 4 News. He discovered his 28-year-old son and a man identified as Ricky McFarlin, 32, shot to death in the basement.

Eddins, the father of a 4-year-old son, and McFarlin, a husband and father of three, had been shot several times and left to die in a suspected robbery.

While police have no leads as of this report, authorities believe the perpetrators tried to cover their tracks.

“The gas was on from the stove. Somebody left it on. The pilots were not lit, so it looks like it was an intentional act,” Captain Kurt Worboys of the Detroit Police Department told ABC 10.
