Woman's murder never solved




A little more than three and a half years ago, Tealette Princess Davis’ body was found in a wooded area in the 900 block of Gay Street.

There have been no arrests and no suspects named in the 2007 murder.

According to previous reports, Davis, 28, of 701 New St. was found around 3 p.m. by people passing through the Gay Street area on Aug. 28.

Davis was reported missing by her boyfriend around 5:45 that same morning.

Officials said he told investigators he had last seen Davis just before midnight on the Aug. 27. That’s when he said she left the house to go to the store, authorities said.

A preliminary autopsy report released in Sept. 2007 indicated Davis was strangled to death.

In an additional police report, officials indicated a tree branch was used as a weapon in the murder, as well as a "hand or fist.” No further explanation as to how Davis was killed was detailed on the report and has never been released.

Police have remained tight-lipped about the details of the murder in an effort to preserve the investigation, said Detective Eric Kearney.

Police say they would very much like to arrest Davis’ killer or killers and bring closure to her family and friends.

Anyone with any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, is asked to contact Detective Eric Kearney at 234-7567, Detective M. McKenzie at 399-2327 or Wilson Crime Stoppers at 243-2255.

Who in the world, goes to the store at midnight???????? Especially being female.
And why would he report her missing @ 5:45 the same morning that the body was found???????? This is too strange, because the average person would have been calling around, asking friends and neighbors even out looking for her as soon as she did not return soon after midnight. Why wait to 5 to call police??????????????? Something is very suspect in this case.JMHO
