Our condolences go to C.J. Beathard as his younger brother was killed yesterday in Nashville. According to local authorities, Clayton Beathard was stabbed outside of a place called Dogwood Bar at 2:50 a.m. after a fight broke out.
Police officers that were on the scene stated that the brawl started inside of the named establishment. It seems that the parties involved had a dispute about a woman who was also a guest at Dogwood Bar. What began as an altercation inside the bar turned into a fight when they left the bar. After the battle was interrupted by police officers, Clayton Beathard, a 21-year-old male called Paul Trapeni III, and as of now, unidentified 21-year old male were all found with stab wounds.
Three of them were quickly transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where their wounds were treated. Unfortunately, Beathard and Trapeni succumbed to their injuries, while the third person remains in the hospital.
The name of the stabber is not yet known, but authorities have a photo of the suspect. According to WKRN, Dogwood Bar and a few other Nashville businesses are offering a $20.000 award for anyone who can provide any information on the stabber.

Upon hearing the news, C.J. Was consoled by head coach Kyle Shanahan and his teammates.

Said before leaving was: Make sure these guys go win this game.
