CEDAR FALLS-Cedar Falls Police say a weekend stabbing killed a Grundy County teenager.

Monday morning, police identified the victim of a weekend stabbing incident as Treye Allen Blythe, 18 of Ackley. He died of a stab wound to the chest late Saturday night on a Cedar Falls street. Police say the call to 501 Clay Street came in just before 10:00 o'clock Saturday night.

When officers arrived, they found Blythe unconscious on the street outside the house. Investigators say a party was going on at the house and a fight developed. Some neighbors say Blythe was trying to break up the fight when he was stabbed. Officers are not commenting on that part of the investigation.

Police are still referring to the incident at a "death investigation" and not a homicide. One resident at the home declined to talk about the stabbing, but did say police were told the name of the people who stabbed the victim.

The 18-year-old Blythe was a high school football player and wrestler who graduated last May. He was scheduled to start classes at Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo on Monday.

Funeral services for Blythe will take place this Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. at the high school gymnasium in Ackley.
