He is now charged with her murder after he told cops he picked the 16-year-old up from school and killed her. Her family says he did it so she wouldn’t testify at his trial.
Shania claimed that Davis raped her while she babysat his two kids, and threatened to kill her if she told anyone.
The decease teen told her grandmother, Davis was eventually charged with four counts of sexual assault of a child.
He plotted to meet Shania at her Irving high school on Thursday afternoon by posing on Facebook as a teenager in her social circle who had a crush on her, the Dallas Morning News reported.According to the NYDaily, “The trial was coming up in October and I think he didn’t want her to testify,” said Sherry Ramsey, a friend of Shania’s mother who spoke on the family’s behalf.
She then added, “She definitely wouldn’t have talked to him if she knew who he was.”
Shania’s parents reported her missing early Friday. Her body was found dumped in a river Saturday, and cops recovered the .38 caliber pistol that killed her from a nearby pond.
Davis was arrested Friday on a traffic warrant. When cops grilled him about his connection to Shania, he confessed to the shocking murder, police said.
He was charged Sunday with capital murder. Cops believe he acted alone.
