Bills fan found dead after being ejected

A 26-year-old male was found dead hours after being ejected from Thursday nights Buffalo Bills game at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The fan has been identified as David Gerken.

Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz says the man became separated from the group he was with but had made plans to meet at a nearby establishment after the game. A brother of the man informed authorities that he had been ejected from the game due to intoxication.

Law enforcement were able to get a “ping” off the missing man’s cell phone to help locate him.

He was found face down in Smoke’s Creek near Shadow Lane, an area behind the Bills stadium. The case is being investigated but no new information has been released.
