The sad case of missing Ohio woman Jessie Davis, played out the way many of the regulars here at MSWs thought it would. Her body was found about 25 miles from her home, in a remote national park. It was in an advanced stage of decomposition, which means she was most likely killed in her home, possibly in front of her young son.
Arrested and held on a $5 million dollar bond is her boyfriend, Bobby Cutts, Jr., a police officer. Also arrested and charged with obstruction of justice is an old high school friend of Cutts’s, Myisha Ferrell.
Authorities are still holding back many of the details, but it ended like most of these cases do. The boyfriend appears to be the suspect (I’ll say allegedly), and the motive, as of yet, is unknown, but likely involved money (my guess, she wanted support for the new baby).
The baby who was found on a doorstep, about 40 miles from Davis’s home, turned out to be a coincidence. If one can call an abandoned newborn a coincidence.
And now, I am left to explore this. How can a man brutally and callously kill a woman? Even worse, how can he kill a woman knowing she is due to give birth to HIS CHILD. Any day. That baby could have survived outside the womb, which means that Cutts is also facing charges for murdering the baby, as Ohio law allows.
Even more, that WOMAN is the mother of one of his LIVING children. A child that is now motherless, and basically–if he is found guilty–parentless, all because of his actions.
Apparently, Cutts does have a record of domestic violence, although details of that are sketchy at this point.
So what do you think motivated Cutts? Why did he kill Davis? Why did he callously disregard the lives of his own children?
