Funeral set for slain W&J athlete
A funeral has been scheduled Tuesday for the Washington & Jefferson College football player who was the victim of a homicide early Thursday less than a block from campus.
The funeral Mass will take place at 10 a.m. at Holy Sepulcher Church in Timothy David McNerney’s hometown of Butler, the Butler Eagle announced this morning.
McNerney, 21, and a teammate were walking home from a Washington bar shortly after 2 a.m. when they were approached by as many as six males wanting to steal a cellphone, city police said.
City police said Friday they had turned up no new clues in the homicide investigation.
McNerney was a son of Denise and Robert McNerney.
