Tragedy occurred this past weekend at a Jason Aldean concert in Cleveland when a 22-year-old man was found dead.
Cory Barron of Fremont, Ohio, went missing on July 18 during Aldean’s concert at Progressive Field and was found by a landfill worker yesterday (July 22) in New Russia Township, which is right outside of Cleveland, Saving Country Music reports.
Barron was identified by his ID, and still had his ticket stub on him. Meanwhile, local police continue to investigate the situation. He was last seen around 9:30 p.m. after leaving his seat to meet up with friends in another section of the venue. It is thought he could have fell down a trash chute before landing in the dumpster.
The investigation is ongoing.
Aldean took to Twitter yesterday to share his condolences with Barron’s family.
My sincere condolences go out to Cory Barron’s family and friends. My heart is heavy for you all and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

It was during this Cleveland concert that Aldean debuted his new single “Burnin’ It Down.”
“I wanted to do something for you guys tonight that we haven’t done yet,” Aldean told the crowd at Cleveland’s Progressive Field in a video posted on YouTube. “We’ve been saving it for you guys this week, because this is our first stadium show of the year. And when I tell you nobody’s heard this song, nobody’s heard this song.”
