Details of Disappearance

Davis disappeared from New Orleans, Louisiana on July 12, 1985, shortly after moving there from Orange, Texas. In September 1990, her skeletal remains were found on the side of County Road 101 in Manvel, Texas. There was little other evidence at the scene other than some jewelry, and the medical examiner could not determine the cause or manner of death.

The body remained unidentified for thirty years and was known as "Princess Blue." In June 2020, after Davis's brother submitted his DNA to law enforcement, the bones were identified as hers. Authorities have reopened the investigation into Davis's death. Her brother believes she was murdered.
