Greenfield stabbing victim identified

Greenfield authorities have identified a man who was stabbed to death around 7 a.m. Sunday as Steven Rogers, 26, of Indianapolis.

Two other victims were found near by the Broadway Street scene a short time later and taken to area hospitals,  but their conditions are not known.

Police had Broadway Street closed near US 40 for several hours as detectives conducted a thorough investigation.

A friend of one of the stab victims talked to Fox59 shortly after he arrived on the scene, trying to piece together what happened.

“I got a phone call saying that one of my buddies had been stabbed, so I come down the road here and apparently one is hurt in pretty bad condition and the other one’s missing in action,” John Wever said.

Police said they were quickly able to find witnesses and suspects, but there have not been any charges filed.

      I knew most would not understand. Should we ban "assault weapons"? Berfore you answer, almost anything can be used to "assault" someone. A knife, tools, pillows, soap, shoes, cars, bats, hockey sticks, toothbrush, flashlight, etc. Cars kill more people then guns so lets ban "assault cars". Here is an idea, the fastest speed limit in IN is 70 mph there should be a law that any car sold in IN cannot go over 70 mph, I mean you don't NEED to drive any faster then 70 mph do you? All families should be limited to ONE car, you don't NEED more than one AND it is harmful to the planet. SEE?

    very ignorant comment that man that was killed was loved and who ever it was that took his life deserves everything that he gets coming to him.

  • somebody

    i know the person that lives there and if he did the stabbing it was an assault knife i have sevral police reports on this guy threating to kill me and my husband they did nothing he was very troubled and short fused

    • cousin

      very troubled and short fused- to me just spells out , should of got some help and if this person is that close to the police department then the police dept. should of got him some help. because now with all of the witnesses and other people that were hurt the guy does not have a chance. the guy killed was my cousin and he has a large loving family. i hope the police dept. will do their job..

      • I know him and her

        I hope and pray they get him out of the hospital soon and lock them both up. He told me he was going to kill me and my two daughters over a comment i made to someone else. He needs serious help. I am so sorry for the victims family….this is an awful situation. I could not imagine. I pray every night for justice for you all….hopefully my prayers are answered soon.

  • He is a MURDERER

    He is guilty and so is she. They both need to be in prison for the rest of their lives or be dead. No amount of money can or will get him out of this one. He is a murderer!!! Too bad his mommy's money bailed him out so many times before, maybe if he would have been punished for his previous actions, he would have become a better person. Not this time though, I can't wait to see him shipped off to a prison where he will be treated like someone's little bitch. Proud of you Greenfield police, you finally might put this psycho away. You better put him away or more innocent lives will be taken. Sad and hurt…..they will get him! You will have justice for your brother.

    For all you nimwits throwing stones at the police, they are doing their job. I personally know several of these officers who have spent their time away from their families for the holidays, just to ensure this gets done right. As for all you that are also saying its the “police fault” because they didn’t do anything, grow up and quit being naive. If the police arrested everyone for some ignorant fool claiming john doe did something to insult them, this whole town would be behind bars. This man is going away for life and there nothing else about it

    • Justice is served

      Glad to hear that this man won't be able to have his mommy bail him out of this one. It's just sad it had to come to this. An innocent man, just trying to defend Colby's girlfriend lost his life. And that poor girl….she has to be in a constant horror everyday. I would be. I wish everyone the best….Cobly McNeely is a murderer and deserves exactly what he did to that poor man. I know the Greenfield Police will make sure he gets what he deserves. Thank you!

  • Victim of murderer

    anybody know JEFF SIPPLE? He killed my sister in Florida and got out in less than 4 years and lives there in your lovely town of Greenfield,IN. Coward!!!

      • :Unknown

        Well I dont know that name, but I will keep my ears open. He is a coward if thats what he did,and how on earth did he get out 4 years later? Whats wrong with the system???

      • Victim of Murderer

        Florida State supposably violated his rights somehow, you can read about it if you do a search for Jeffret Sipple murder, his last article says "Happy to be free" Makes it sound like he's the victim. My sister didn't even own a gun, and also he had 2 strikes with felony convictions with guns in other crimes that we were not allowed to bring up in the trial. enjoy thr read, He now has a long beard if you look it up under fla. dept. of corrections, type in his name and the newer pic. shows up.
