Alcoa Police have charged two more men, including a former University of Tennessee football recruit, in the July stabbing death of a recent William Blount High School graduate.
The two men — Camion D. Patrick, 22, Knoxville, and Isaiah Sherrod Wright, 20, Harriman — were arrested Wednesday in the July 25 stabbing death of 18-year-old Maryville resident Caleb Thomas Radford.
Indiana University campus police in Bloomington, Ind., arrested Patrick, while Harriman authorities took wright into custody, the Alcoa Police Department announced in a news release this morning.
Both men, who are brothers, are charged with criminal homicide.
Alcoa officers previously arrested Keshawn Lonnell Hopewell, 21, South Linden Drive, Alcoa, and Itiq Tivone Green, 28, Topside Road, Louisville, Aug. 3. They each face a charge of criminal homicide in Radford’s slaying.
Patrick, a football player at Indiana University, will remain in Indiana pending an extradition hearing, police said. A spokesman for Indiana University confirmed via email Thursday afternoon that Patrick has been “summarily suspended” from the school.
Wright was initially held at the Roane County Jail before being transported Wednesday to the Blount County Jail.
Blount County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Marian O’Briant said Wright is being held on $1 million bond. Blount County jail records show he is scheduled to appear at a 1:30 p.m. Monday hearing in Blount County General Sessions Court.
Alcoa officers and Blount deputies responded to Topside Road and Buck Drive just after 10:30 p.m. July 25, where they found Radford bleeding from multiple stab wounds. The 18-year-old was taken to University of Tennessee Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Radford played varsity football at WBHS and was also father to a young son.
Patrick played football at both Clinton and Lenoir City high schools. At one point, the standout wide receiver was committed to sign with the University of Tennessee. He transferred to Knox West for his senior year in 2012 but didn’t play due to eligibility issues.
Patrick and Wright both attended East Mississippi Community College, where the Netflix documentary series “Last Chance U” was filmed. Wright, who played running back, was featured on the show.
Wright transferred to the University of West Georgia in February but left the school after completing spring practice, according to 247sports.com.
