NFL player’s $2M house explodes, killing father

Early Tuesday morning, the father of Tennessee Titans cornerback Caleb Farley was killed in a massive explosion at the NFL star’s multimillion-dollar home in Mooresville, North Carolina. The death of 61-year-old Robert Farley has devastated the NFL player. Additionally, the explosion left another individual with non-life-threatening injuries.

The devastating incident occurred in the early hours of Tuesday morning, just a few minutes after midnight. The explosion took place at Caleb Farley’s luxurious home in Mooresville, North Carolina. According to Iredell County Emergency Management Director Kent Greene, the impact of the blast leveled the $2M property. Currently, the fatal incident is being investigated as a gas leak.

Authorities suspect that the gas leak had been present in the house for some time. They presume that gas was already building up before finally finding an ignition source, resulting in a catastrophic explosion. Christian Rogers, a 25-year-old family friend who was also present at the home, managed to escape the wreckage and was taken to the hospital with a concussion. Fortunately, he is expected to recover from his injuries.

Caleb Farley, a first-round pick by the Titans in 2021, was not at home when the explosion occurred. However, he arrived at the scene and was seen speaking with authorities. Greene described Farley as “distraught” over the tragic loss of his father, who was discovered dead amidst the rubble of the collapsed house.

As the investigation into the explosion continues, the community and the Titans organization offer their condolences to Caleb Farley and his family during this difficult time.
