DELAWARE COUNTY, Ind. (February 20, 2014) – A person of interest is in custody after a 21-year old Eaton man was stabbed to death Thursday morning.

The incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. in the 200 block of North Long Street in Eaton. According to Sgt. Greg Ellison with the Delaware County Sheriff’s office, police believe the victim and another man got into an argument over the phone.

That man then drove to the victim’s house with a few other people. A fight followed–and that’s when police say the man pulled a knife and stabbed the victim.

Police have a person of interest in custody and are currently interviewing witnesses.
