DA investigates death of Patriots fan at Gillette Stadium

The death of a 53-year-old New Hampshire man at Sunday night’s Patriots game is under investigation, the Norfolk DA announced.

Foxboro police and fire personnel responded into the 300’s tier of Gillette Stadium where Dale Mooney of Newmarket, N.H., “was in apparent need of medical attention at approximately 10:57 p.m.,” the DA’s office said Monday.

Mooney was transported to the Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro where authorities say he was pronounced dead.

State troopers are following “normal protocol” by investigating the death, the DA added.

“The matter remains under active investigation. The District Attorney’s Office has been informed that the autopsy is not scheduled to be conducted (Monday). There are no charges in place at this time,” the announcement added.

The State Police said Mooney suffered an “apparent medical event” during the game. His wife was quoted as saying he was a father of two and a season ticket holder.

First-responders reportedly helped another man earlier at Gillette who went into cardiac arrest.

The Dolphins beat the Patriots 24-17.
