Third Suspect In Stabbing Of Steelers T Mike Adams Extradited Back To Pittsburgh


According to WPXI-TV, Jerrell Whitlock and his girlfriend Precious Gethers were both extradited from Florida back to Pittsburgh on Friday.

Whitlock faces charges of attempted homicide in the June 1 stabbing of Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Mike Adams, while Gethers, who was apprehended along with Whitlock in a Florida hotel room a few weeks ago, is charged with endangering the welfare of a child and hindering the apprehension of Whitlock.

The report notes that Ms. Gethers lied to authorities about being able to reach Mr. Whitlock when they were searching for him following the attack on Adams and then fled with him to Florida with the couple\'s 3-year-old son.

Already in custody in Pittsburgh are Dquay Means and Michael C. Paranay, but Whitlock is believed to be the one responsible for stabbing Adams twice in the stomach during an attempted car jacking on the South Side. Those stab wounds required Adams to undergo emergency surgery for a lacerated colon.

Adams was forced to sit out for the remainder of the offseason practices following the incident, but the early word is that he will be able to participate in training camp beginning July 26 at St. Vincent College.

    That chick needs to get her priorities straight. I’d turn in my Momma if she stabbed a Pittsburgh Steeler.

    If I could ‘like’ a comment on here, I would this one.

  • WilliamSekinger

    No wonder he was so bold as to attack a mountain of a man in Adams. 3 or 4 to 1 Adams didn’t have a chance.

  • Matt Searls

    U can haha. That’s what the arrows are for. Up is good down is bad

  • SteelersNick

    great comment r4kolb ! ! I would too.

  • Steves

    He’s got 3 fellow gang member in the slammer with him. You know Adams know who stabbed him and can identify the dude. Goodbye Mr Whitlock you will be away for some time in the slammer and better watch you back cause I’ll bet there are plenty of Steeler fans in their that don’t like what you did.

    RE: Convict Fans

    I never gave that a thought…… They’ll probably send them to Lewistown instead of the state pen in the Burgh….
