September 20 update: Preliminary autopsy identifiesin death of Patriots fan Dale Mooney at Gillette Stadium, but "did not suggest traumatic injury.
FOXBORO - WBZ-TV has obtained video showing the moments before aduring the Patriots-Dolphins game Sunday night. The video is too graphic to show, but images help illustrate what happened.
The video starts by showing a Patriots fan, apparently Dale Mooney, walking into a row. He goes out of view for a moment because other people are in front of the camera.
When he is seen again, he is in a physical struggle with another man. At least three people can be seen trying to separate them. One of them appears to be a security worker.
The struggle goes on for at least 13 seconds on the video, before the other man is seen throwing at least one quick punch at Mooney. After the punch, Mooney falls over and security workers are able to separate the two men.
The video shows Mooney slumped down in a seat, appearing to be unconscious. That is when the video ends.
Mooney was rushed to a hospital in Attleboro, but he was pronounced dead.
The fan who recorded the video says it has been given to police.
No one has been arrested. The Massachusetts State Police and Norfolk District Attorney are investigating.
An autopsy is pending. WBZ-TV legal expert Jennifer Roman explained what could happen next in the case.
"If there's a direct cause, or at least, a strong causal connection between the punch and the victim's death then they may be looking at bringing manslaughter charges," Roman said.
