Last Chance U’s Isaiah Wright, brother charged in fatal stabbing


Last Chance U star Isaiah Wright and former Indiana Hoosiers wide receiver Camion Patrick have been charged in connection with a stabbing death outside of Alcoa, Tenn., according to The Indianapolis Star.

From the Star:

Both have been connected to the July 25 death of Caleb Thomas Radford, 18, of Maryville, Tenn.. Radford was found about 10:42 p.m. on Topside Road at Buck Drive. He had been stabbed multiple times.

It was unclear Wednesday the specific charge each brother is facing in connection with Radford’s slaying. The Alcoa Police Department on Aug. 3 announced two men were charged with criminal homicide in connection with Radford’s slaying. Police Chief David Carswell said Keshawn Lonnell Hopewell, 21, of Alcoa, and Itiq Tivone Green, 28, of Louisville were being held on $1 million bond each.

Wright was arrested Wednesday in Kingston, Tenn. Patrick was booked into the Monroe County correctional facility by officers with the Indiana University Police Department at 9:50 a.m. Wednesday.

Earlier this year, Wright landed at West Georgia via East Mississippi Community College, but later left the football program. Portrayed during seasons 1 and 2 of Last Chance U, Wright lost an unborn child on the show, detailed a rough upbringing and helped raise his siblings with his older brother.

Patrick, a native of Knoxville, Tenn., was once committed to the University of Tennessee before playing at the JUCO level – in Scooba, Miss. at EMCC – prior to Indiana. He was granted a medical hardship in July, ending his career with the Hoosiers.
