WEAVERVILLE, Calif. - One man died on Tuesday after a fight broke out in Trinity County.

On Jan. 8, around 11:05 a.m., the Trinity County Dispatch received a report of a physical altercation at the intersection of Highway 299 and Mill Street in Weaverville. 

When they arrived on the scene, they found a man unresponsive and suffering from puncture wounds to various areas of his body. The victim was identified as Nathan Perdue, 28, of Weaverville. 

He was transferred to a local hospital where he later died of his injuries. 

Deputies found another man covered in blood approximately 60 yards from where the altercation took place. The suspect made several statements to deputies indicating that he killed Perdue. 

The suspect was interviewed by the Trinity County Sheriff's Office where he confessed to stabbing Perdue multiple times after believing that he was making advances toward his girlfriend. He said that his intention was to kill Perdue and that Perdue was unarmed. 

The suspect has not been identified due to his juvenile status. He was arrested and is being held on charges of homicide. 

The investigation is ongoing.

Staying hot and hazy today, but relief from the heat is on the way for the middle of this week. We'll also have the potential for mountain thunderstorms on Wednesday. The heat returns this weekend.
