10:15 AM PT — Authorities say Caleb Farley‘s father, Robert Farley, was the one who was killed in the home explosion.
A massive explosion at a North Carolina home belonging to NFL defensive back Caleb Farley has left one person dead … and another injured.
The incident happened overnight Monday in Mooresville, N.C. — leveling a multi-million dollar property that, according to multiple reports, Farley had just purchased recently.
Iredell County Fire Marshal’s Office spokesperson Kent Greene tells TMZ Sports … one person was recovered from the scene deceased — while another was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Farley was not a victim, Greene added.
An investigation into the matter is ongoing, Greene tells us … though the current focus of the probe is centering around the home’s natural gas lines.
According to local media outlets on the scene, Farley — a 24-year-old Tennessee Titans corner — was seen at the site Tuesday morning cooperating with authorities.
Farley is currently on the Titans’ physically-unable-to-perform list while dealing with a back injury. Since the team took him with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Farley’s played sparingly, seeing action in just 12 total games.
