Bobby Lee CUTTS Jr.



Jessie Davis Murder Case


Jessie Davis, 26, the mother of a 2-year-old boy, was 9 months pregnant when she went missing between June 13 and June 14, 2007. After Davis' mother, Patricia Porter, couldn't reach her for a day and a half, she went to Davis' home on the morning of June 15. The home was in disarray and Davis' 2-year-old son was alone. The boy, Blake, told police, "Mommy was crying. Mommy broke the table. Mommy's in rug."



Davis, pictured at her baby shower a few days before her disappearance, was due to deliver her second child July 3, 2007. Davis' car, purse and many of her other belongings were left behind at her home. Porter told police it was not like Davis to leave her child home alone and she was convinced something terrible had happened. There were also no signs of forced entry into the home, police said.



Davis and her son Blake are pictured in this surveillance-camera footage at an Acme Grocery in North Canton, Ohio on June 13, 2007. The Stark County Sheriff's Department said this was the last recorded image of Davis before she disappeared.



Davis' 2-year-old son Blake may have been the only witness to her disappearance. Davis' mother, Patricia Porter, now has custody of Blake. When reporters asked how he was doing, Porter said, "Blake is doing as well as can be expected for a 2 1/2-year-old whose mom is not coming home."



Davis' comforter (pictured) was missing from the home, and police believed that, when Blake said, "Mommy's in rug," he might have been talking about the comforter.



Bobby Cutts Jr.'s online dating profile. Cutts is the father of Davis' first child and believed to be the father of the baby she was carrying. In two of his online profiles, Cutts said he did not want to have children.



A photo of Cutts, a Canton Police Department officer, posted on his profile on a dating Web site, which was updated during the week of Davis' disappearance. "I'm an easy going person who likes to have fun whenever possible. I like doing things to make people laugh but can be serious when need be. I am a hard working person and I expect for you to be the same," he wrote.



On June 13, 2007, Cutts was last seen at Champs Sports Bar. He had dinner and drinks and left the bar at about 12:30 a.m. June 14, 2007, according to police. Police maintained that Cutts was not a suspect, but were investigating his whereabouts during the time Davis went missing.



Cutts rested while helping search for clues near Davis' home on June 17, 2007, in Lake Township, Ohio. Police and search teams scoured the neighborhood for clues to Davis' disappearance.



Family members and neighbors watched as FBI agents and Stark County Sheriff deputies searched Cutts' Canton, Ohio, home on June 20, 2007, the same day police searched Davis' home. Police would later search Cutts' home again, removing several bags, while volunteers continued to search for any evidence in Davis' disappearance.



Jessie Davis' brother, Chris Davis (center), searched a field for his missing sister on June 23, 2007. During the 10 days that Davis was missing, thousands of people combed through wooded areas, looking for clues. That Saturday, authorities announced they had found a body, which they believed was Davis.



When Jessie Davis disappeared, people left flowers on the doorstep of her home, and continued to leave flowers, gifts and messages during the 10 days Davis was missing.



Authorities in Summit County, Ohio, removed the body of Jessie Davis at 3:30 p.m. on June 23, 2007, from a field in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

On June 24, 2007, police arrested 29-year-old Myisha Ferrell, shown in her mug shot, on a charge of obstruction of justice. FBI agents and sheriff's deputies broke down Ferrell's door on June 23, 2007 and removed evidence. Police said bleach was found in her home, and the floors of Davis' home were covered in bleach after her disappearance. Ferrell and Cutts, who were high school classmates, had dated for a short time.

Bobby Cutts Jr., charged with two counts of first-degree murder, waived his right to a preliminary hearing July 2. He stood in court for less than five minutes, only to say yes three times to Municipal Court Judge Richard Kubilus to indicate he understood what it meant to waive the hearing. His case was set to go to a grand jury.



Myishia Ferrell, charged with obstruction of justice, waived her right to a preliminary hearing July 2. Her defense attorney asked Judge Kubilus to lower her bond from $500,000, but prosecutor Frank Forchione asked the judge to deny the request, bond saying that Ferrell had helped move and "deposit" Davis' body and had continuously lied to authorities investigating the case. The judge denied the defense request and her case was bound over to a grand jury.
