Cleveland homicide investigators returned to Progressive Field on Tuesday to try to figure out what really happened to Cory Barron.

The Indians haven't had a home game since Barron went to a concert at the stadium, then ended up dead. He was found in trash at a Lorain County landfill that was picked up from the stadium.

Police say he went down a trash chute. Now their theory is feet first.

A source close to the case says Barron had more significant injuries to his legs and the lower part of the body, which may mean he went down the chute feet first. But the question remains: Was it an accident or was foul play involved? 

Police are still waiting for toxicology test results because Barron had been drinking. 

We went to the game tonight to see if Progressive Field tightened security around the door leading to the trash chute. It was locked. It is not yet known how Barron would have accessed that area the night he died. 

Fans were excited for the Tribe but some had an uneasy feeling. 

"I know there's a lot of mystery surrounding it. They still don't know what happened. I hope they get it all figured out. Answers will help everything," said one fan.
