Isaiah S. Wright and Camion D. Patrick, who both appeared on Netflix’s “Last Chance U,” have been charged in connection to a fatal stabbing in Alcoa, Tennessee.
According to the Alcoa Police Department, Wright, 20, and Patrick, 22, are each charged with one count of criminal homicide in the July 25 death of 18-year-old Caleb Thomas Radford. Radford was found at around 10:42 p.m. in Louisville with multiple stab wounds.
Keshawn Lonnell Hopewell and Itiq Tivone Green were each charged with criminal homicide on August 3.
Wright appeared on two seasons of Netflix’s “Last Chance U,” both set at East Mississippi Community College, which both Wright and Patrick attended. The brothers played football for the junior college before moving on. Patrick was also featured on the streaming series, though to a lesser extent.
Wright was a star running back at the Scooba, Mississippi stepping-stone school, one of the main players profiled by cameras on the sophomore run of the Netflix reality program. On its latest run, Wright and Patrick spoke openly about their tough childhood, bouncing around the foster care system after their mother left and father went to prison.
Patrick most recently played wide receiver and running back at Indiana University, where he was plagued by multiple injuries. In July, he was granted a medical hardship waiver, which ended his college football career but allowed Patrick to remain on scholarship.
“In response to your email, I can confirm that Mr. Patrick was arrested by Indiana University police Wednesday,” an Indiana University spokesperson told us when reached for comment. “He has been summarily suspended from the university.”
Wright, who had initially earned a scholarship to Auburn, was sidelined for much of EMCC’s 2016 season with an injury of his own. On the field or behind the thick white stripe, Wright frequently battled with Lions head coach Buddy Stevens.
The talented back ended up walking away from East Mississippi for Division II West Georgia, but he left school before ever playing a game there.
Patrick will remain in Indiana pending an extradition hearing, while Wright is being held in Harriman and will be transported by Blount County Sheriff’s deputies.
