Family members told WSOC-TV the deceased victim was Farley’s father, Robert. The injured victim wasn’t immediately identified.

Farley was spotted on the scene Tuesday, speaking with officials, according to Queen City News. He reportedly has lived at the house for about a year.

Neighbors told the station they heard a “loud explosion” and smelled gas.

“A loud boom, about five minutes to midnight,” a neighbor told Queen City News. “A gorgeous house, in all respects, I can’t believe it.”

According to property records, the home was listed for about $2 million in 2022 and was only built in 2016. Greene said the home is a complete loss as are some vehicles.

Farley, 24, is originally from Maiden – located about 24.5 miles west of Mooresville, where the explosion occurred. Lake Norman sits in between both towns.
