Davis’ Body Found

Sadly, it’s not surprising that police believe they found the body of Jessie Marie Davis, a pregnant Ohio woman. Her boyfriend Bobby Cutts, who is a police officer and believed to be the father of the unborn child, is charged with her murder.

After all, he seemed to be the likely suspect. He is separated from his wife and he already fathered a child with Davis, 2-year-old Blake.

In fact, it was little Blake who probably made this tale so gripping. Yes, when a pregnant mother who is only weeks away from her due date goes missing, it will fetch major headlines. But when Patricia Porter, Davis’ mother, discovered broken furniture and bleach on the floor of her daughter’s home, it was probably wasn’t as chilling to her as what her grandson said, “Mommy was crying. Mommy broke the table. Mommy’s in the rug.”

It does make one’s blood run cold hearing that last part. He was certainly a witness to his mother’s murder and by the grace of God, it won’t scar him for life but it probably will.

If Cutts is guilty of the crime, then hopefully he’ll be facing the death penalty. However, Cutts probably won’t if he made a deal with Stark County Prosecutor John Ferrero, telling him where Davis’ body was at in order to spare him the death penalty.

It’s only a matter of time before we hear the sick “reasons” why Davis and her unborn daughter were murdered. Sadly, between that and how they were actually murdered and were hidden will be far chillier than hearing a 2-year-old little boy saying “Mommy’s in the rug.”
