Police Investigating Warped Fan’s Death

Local police are looking into the death of a young adult who collapsed during yesterday’s Vans Warped Tour stop in the Kansas City area.

The Bonner Springs Police Department is conducting a joint investigation with the Wyandotte County District Attorney’s Office into the death of 26-year-old Alan DeForest, who collapsed during the Warped Tour’s stop at Capitol Federal Park at Sandstone.

DeForest collapsed at the venue during the early evening hours after spending the day at the festival. Medical personnel placed him on advanced life support and took him to the Providence Medical Center where he died later the same evening, according to the Basehor Sentinel.

Although the exact cause of death is still under investigation, police do not suspect foul play.

Meanwhile, Warped organizers issued a statement saying the extreme sports / music tour is working with local law enforcement officials and venue personnel to determine the cause of DeForest’s death. Organizers also said, “the tour would like to offer their thoughts and prayers to the young man’s family and friends.”
