Decatur County, Georgia -- March 14, 2011 --

A family already grieving after one death is hit by another tragedy.

As the family gathered to mourn a woman who had died, the woman's grandnephew was stabbed to death.

Decatur County Sheriff's officials say the family had gathered at a building across from Rosa Lee Lane on Highway 309 in Decatur County.

Authorities say at about 12:30 Sunday morning (3/13/11), 38-year-old Roderick Smith, who was not related to the family, came in and got into a fight.

The victim, 31-year-old Trevix Clemons, also known as Kenta Campbell, was stabbed multiple times and died from his wounds.

The sheriff's office says the suspect has been arrested.

There's no word on what started the fatal argument.

To the family I will think of him everyday, and to his killer I hope you suffer the way my D.A.W.G did. RIP homeboi will see you when I cross that bridge.

    I am going to truely miss my cousin. We were closer than most people will ever know. He was just suppose to be in my wedding but him and my Aunt Rhunette(his mom R.I.P) did attend. Cuz really didn't just go out his way to bother anybody. He was the one to say (most of the time) cuz don't sweat it just let it go. He loved his family very much. I mean everybody with their flaws and all. He was a father whowent out his way to take care of his kids. Kente' was very humorous. And if you did get mad at him he probally would say something to make you laugh it off. I'm the second oldest in my generation and Kente was one of the youngest in his. So when we were kids he was the only one I was allowed to play with in his generation. That's when our bond began. To the rest of my folks who share this loss and pain, keep ur faith, head, and chin up. Remember God is perfect and doesn't make mistakes.

    My prayers go out to the family....When something tragic like this happens we tend to say, she/he was a good person and really know that they were not.... I can really say that Kenta was a great man at heart. From the time I met cuz he was the same person... R.I.P. Kenta and may God touch his family....

    Condolences to the family; Roderick Smith was a violent person and it is sad that the family has lost yet another member. We can only hope that justice will prevail.
