An 18-year-old Sandusky man is being held in Erie County Jail as a suspect in the stabbing death of a 24-year-old Sandusky man he referred to as his uncle.

Jared Rhodes, 24, Sandusky, suffered three stab wounds during a fight that took place at about 3 a.m. in a home at 1308 Clinton Street, police said. He was taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center but died at 2 p.m.

The suspect, Tre'Vonte Adcock, known as "Tre," 18, 2000 block of Camp St., was arrested at the scene for "misconduct at an emergency" when he interfered with officers, police said. He was identified as a suspect after police interviewed witnesses.

Police have recovered the knife which they believe was used in the stabbing, Detective Sgt. Dana Newell said.

"The knife was found at the scene," Newell said.

A police report lists a silver butterfly knife being found at the house.

Police believe the stabbing was the result of a dispute between the two men that rapidly escalated, Newell said.

"It was an argument. I don't want to say what it was about," Newell said.

The disagreement turned into a physical altercation and then a knife became involved, he said.

Police have been in touch with Prosecutor Kevin Baxter and believe they have a "solid" case to present to Baxter when they meet with him Monday, said Det. Gary Wichman, the lead investigator in the case. Detectives Lester Peters and Dave West also assisted in the investigation.

Despite his youth, police are familiar with Adcock, who has a criminal record, Newell said.

Adcock referred to Rhodes as his uncle, Newell said.

Bobby Rhodes, Jared Rhodes' father, said Jared was the youngest of his five children and said Adcock is his nephew.

Newell said Rhodes was stabbed three times but did not identify where the wounds were.

A police report filed by Sgt. Eric Graybill says that police were dispatched at 3:03 a.m. to 1308 Clinton St. for a person who was bleeding. As they went to the scene, dispatchers told the officers that someone had been stabbed.

Police were met at the front door by Anita Yado. The officers found Herlandes Delph, Tyran Sullivan and Adcock standing over Rhodes, who was on the kitchen floor, bleeding profusely. 

Police said Adcock was shouting at Rhodes and trying to pick him up. The police said they tried to ask what had happened, but no one would tell them. As the officers tried to help Rhodes and see what his injuries where, Adcock interfered with them and yelled profanities at them, the report states.

The fire department arrived and began to treat Rhodes. Police arrested Adcock, who was placed in a police car and eventually sprayed with pepper spray after he kicked the interior of the car and was warned to stop, the report said.

Referring to Adcock, Newell said, "By his own admission, he was consuming alcohol."

Bobby Rhodes, interviewed at the front door of the Clinton Street house as Christmas lights twinkled on the front of the porch, described his son as the youngest of five children and said he was  student at BGSU Firelands.

He described his son as "a jolly guy, a jolly person. He liked to laugh and make people laugh."

Bobby Rhodes said he was concerned that the police did not take his son's wounds seriously enough and did not get him to treatment in time. But he said he was not present in the house when the incident took place and said he lives elsewhere in Sandusky.

The police report listed an address for Jared Rhodes that's on the 200 block of Lawrence St..

A woman at the listed address, however, said she did not know who Rhodes is.

Newell said he's pleased with the patrol officers who responded to the scene when the stabbing was called in. They secured the area and made sure that evidence would not be tampered with, Newell said.

"That's always a key," he said. "The patrol division did an excellent job."

RIP Jared

You will be missed by those who love you and judged by the ones that didn't

Love ya Nephew

What a shame. Now one family is without their loved one this holiday season because they'll be BURYING him; the other is without their loved one this holiday season because it sounds like he's going to be behind bars for quite a little while.

So, what, pray tell, "argument" was worth that, eh? Some people SERIOUSLY need to get a little perspective! People disagree all the time, even about serious matters. So? If you can't live with the disagreement, then remove yourself from that person's life. If you CAN live with the disagreement, then move on to another topic. What you DON'T do is KILL (or take such action that somebody COULD die even if murder wasn't what you had in mind).

Stupid, stupid, stupid, and what a high price to pay for it for BOTH families!

Cracked Cherry

Have fun living out your next 25 yrs in prison.

Cityslicker

Trying to blame the cops somehow there Bobby?? Wake up and smell the roses.

yea right

He was fine at hospital. After first surgery the thinking might be malpractice...

mikeylikesit

yeah right, blame anybody but the killer. seems to be the american way these days..

ragtop66

Is that because you know you won't get jack if you sue the killer?

Malpractice? WTH?

he said she said

When was he fine at the hospital? He came in unresponsive, he went into a 4 hour surgery unresponsive, and after surgery he was still unresponsive and on a ventilator. He was never conscious in the 12 hours that he was brought in and died. How is that fine???

mikeylikesit

living and dying by the law of the 'hood..

yea right

ssshhhhh an autopsy is being done ( out of county)..he had surgery..they put him a comma for a bit..woke him up he was like "hi" to all..more bleeding started..and becuz the hospital was acting like.."omg we f****d up..something went wrong".. the the talk of "we might have given him to much knock out meds".. so yea there will be an investigation..

BEHAPPY

Oh no~~ now it's the hospitals fault!!!!!
If it's not the LE's fault it's the hospitals fault. Get a grip! Blame the criminal for a change!

he said she said

There will be an autospy because it was a crime not because of what the hospital may or may not have done. Official autospies are conducted (out of county). Were you by chance there to know that he woke up? Did he speak to you because he sure didn't speak to me in those 12 hours.

And it's a drug induced coma not comma. This , is a comma.

yea right

wow really..so i misspelled a word or too....and yea i am sure most ppl know about autospy's some dont tho..just clearing things up..also i was NOT there..but i know someone who was and was VERY close to him..closer than you...hey btw you got 5 bucks??

he said she said

Closer than me? Yea, ok. The person that is telling you that he was fine is not right. He was not fine or he wouldn't have been put in a drug induced coma to keep him from trying to pull the tubes out that were for the ventilator. And FYI, noone can speak with the tubes down their throat.

Yea. I got $5. You want it? Get a job!!

Pastor Ron

I personally wouldn't believe a word coming from Bobby Rhodes. Blaming the police for not assisting his son quick enough. God knows Bobby has given them enough practice!

Simple Enough II

Just Keepin it real..

yea right

I think pastor ron needs a new hobbie

mikeylikesit

i think pastor ron is spot on this time.

starryeyes83

...agreed

2cents

I enjoy the research, it puts the history with the person thank you!

Cityslicker

Me too Mikey.

he said she said

What does Bobby's actions and arrest record have to do with Jared?? Jared was between the ages of two and eight when these things happened. He didn't tell his dad to do them.

Simple Enough II

No, just might have grown up in the environment though.

yea right

Well Bobbie did leave Jared in south Carolina and move to Ohio without his 14 yr old son and daughter

he said she said

Is that Jared's fault too? Why is everybody trying to blame somebody else for what Tre did? Tre cut Jared. Not Bobby's past and not because Bobby left kids in Greenville with their mother (they all would have been better off to have left him a long time ago if you ask me!). Tre Adcock cut Jared and now Jared is dead. Stop the blaming of everyone else for what Tre did!! He needs to put his big boy pants on now and now that he did a crime as an adult take the punishment as an adult.

The past is the past. It can't be fixed and it can't be erased. Bobby has done a lot of stuff but none of that had anything to do with Jared or Tre or anybody else in that house.

There are so many different stories to what happened now. I won't believe any of them. The one person that I know would tell the truth about what happened is dead.

So take all the finger pointing, the pulling up stuff that doesn't have to do with anything or with anyone involved and respect my nephew!

Simple Enough II

So you think past actions, behavior or what has no impact on the future? Good, then we can quit using 150+ year old slavery issues, raised in a poor family, not having a male role model (Aka Father) etc. as a crutch for antisocial behavior. Can we agree on that then?

starryeyes83

Absolutely!! Good points.

he said she said

Y'all can go on and keep saying what you want to about somebody that you didn't know, wasn't there when he came out of surgery and wasn't there when he died.

All y'all is doing is showing how truly ignorant people are in Sandusky.

So keep on posting lies and stuff that has nothing to do with anything and look like that fool

yea right

No lies from me and i am not putting blame on others. Pastor Ron is the one that brought up Bobbies past . Llike i said he needs new hobby . FYI i really feel for his unborn child

mikeylikesit

pastor rons unborn child?
