Another fan present at the game, Joseph Kilmartin, explained his eyewitness account of the unsettling moments that led to the tragic incident. According to him, towards the climax of the fourth quarter, Mooney found himself in a scuffle with a group of fans. As described by Kilmartin, Mooney initiated contact with a fellow fan, which swiftly escalated to violence, involving multiple participants. However, Kilmartin opted not to elaborate further on the incident when approached for an interview.

Following the episode that escalated around 10:57 p.m., Foxborough police and fire department were immediately alerted to the scene given Mooney’s urgent need for medical care. He was subsequently transported to Sturdy Memorial Hospital. In spite of the immediate medical assistance, Mooney was pronounced dead shortly before the stroke of midnight, as per the statement from the Massachusetts State Police.

The Norfolk County District Attorney, in conjunction with the local police, has since commenced an investigation into the incident. No further information has been made available regarding the confrontation leading up to the incident, as both the state police and District Attorney have refrained from commenting.

Mooney’s spouse, Lisa, shed some light on Mooney’s character, reminiscing about his serene nature and immense patience. They were traits maligned on the fateful night, as per accounts of his friends who were with him, who informed Lisa that they were verbally teased by other fans during the game. Lisa is at a loss, as Dale had no known afflictions, and seeks to understand the cause of the incident which resulted in such a tragic loss.

While autopsy results are yet to be released, the Medical Examiner has refrained from commenting on the case as well.

Gillette Stadium officials expressed their deep sorrow over the loss of Dale Mooney, a loyal Patriots enthusiast with a history of a 30-year season ticket holding. They pledged their support to the authorities for the ongoing investigation, while extending their most heartfelt condolences to Mooney’s grieving family and those mourning his tragic loss.
