Deputies Raid Home Of Bobby Cutts' Friend In Search Of Evidence In Murder Of Jessie Davis

Topics: National News

As sheriff's deputies in Canton, Ohio continue to investigate whether Bobby Cutts Jr. had help in the alleged murder of Jessie Marie Davis or in the disposing of her body, last night deputies smashed through the door of Myisha Ferrell, a high school friend of Cutts, looking for DNA trace evidence, including blood, hair and fibers "which may be used as evidence of the crime of obstructing justice." An inventory of the search showed officers took three empty containers of Febreze fabric freshener, an empty Clorox Clean-Up Cleaner (spray cleaner), a black address book, three cell phones, a partial roll of duct tape, Hefty CinchSak garbage bags, Lysol cleaner and bleach gallon jugs. Bleach was found splattered throughout the bedroom of Jessie Davis' home last Friday, when her family discovered she was missing.

Myisha Ferrell was not at her Canton apartment at 1245 Oxford Ave. NW Saturday night when Stark County sheriff's deputies were looking for DNA trace evidence, including blood, hair and fibers "which may be used as evidence of the crime of obstructing justice," according to the search warrant signed by Stark County Common Pleas Judge John Haas.

Deputies smashed through the door of Ferrell's apartment shortly before 8 p.m. as neighbors gathered in the street.

Officers removed about eight brown paper evidence bags and several smaller envelope-sized bags from the apartment.

The warrant showed they were looking for pillows, a bed sheet, a cell phone, cleaning supplies including bleach, children's clothing, men's or women's clothing, gloves, and the DNA evidence.

An inventory of the search showed officers took three empty containers of Febreze fabric freshener, an empty Clorox Clean-Up Cleaner (spray cleaner), a black address book, three cell phones, a partial roll of duct tape, Hefty CinchSak garbage bags, Lysol cleaner and bleach gallon jugs. The bleach came from the basement, which is shared with neighbor Justin Lindstrom, and he said one of the bleach jugs was his.

... A source close to Cutts told The Repository Saturday that Cutts said he asked a female friend help him remove Davis' body from her home. Cutts reportedly said Davis' death was not his doing, but he thought no one would believe him and decided to hide the body.

... According to Ferrell's neighbor, Lindstrom, "The FBI has been here about four times in the last three days." Agents called him again Saturday night, and told him Ferrell had been released from police custody, but if Lindstrom saw her he was to call immediately.

... He said he last saw Ferrell Friday, when she was at her apartment for about 20 minutes and left with cleaning supplies, a broom, a dustpan and a black garbage bag.
