I will always believe this man got away with one of the most notorious murders in Texas because of his money. Anyway, now his home has caught on fire. Could be karma?

COLLEYVILLE, Texas -- A Texas oilman is back in the headlines: This time T. Cullen Davis is a victim of a house fire.

If you don't know who Cullen Davis is, this is a pretty good article.

Karma, yes I believe....

This is not the kind of Karma that I was thinking of. He and his wife escaped unharmed. Now, if he had died in the fire, it would have been Karma. IMO, he is a cold-blooded murderer.

Never heard of him, that was interesting reading. I also believe that justice wasn't served based on what I just read.

Maybe karma is just gearing up? If I were him, I'd be looking over my shoulder.

He is pond scum and unless he was burned over 75% of his body and LIVED, then there has been no karma. He is a cold-blooded murderer. JMHO.

I read the book about this case. He is a sick B******.


Can't believe he got away with it the way he did.

I am reading that article and although his wife was not perfect it is casting her in a rather unflattering light.


If I recall he had some not so above the board dealings as well and his own issues.
The article is talking of how she dressed but as I recall he insisted she be revealing.

Are they talking about his first wife, Priscilla, or his 2nd wife, with the revealing dress? That sounds more like Priscilla than his 2nd wife, who it seems is/was religious.

I remember when Cullen "found God" and threw hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of rare art work in the lake, or some such stupid thing.

Of course the Ultimate Karma would be the same thing happening to him that happened to his stepdaughter and his ex wifes boyfriend. :D

I agree with you all, especially you Michelle. He deserves to have done to him what, I believe, he did to Andrea Wilborn and Stan Farr. Maybe this house fire is just the beginning and the tides are finally turning to give him the punishment he so much deserves.

HOT, I remember that also about throwing rare artwork in to Lake Worth, I believe. Didn't some of the pieces wash ashore years later and people thought they were religous artifacts or something?

I don't know what his occupation is now, but he has been a minister in recent years. :loser:

There is a fantastic article by Skip Hollingsworth about Cullen being "born again" in the Texas Monthly archives. I'll try to dig it up.

This man is nothing more than a cold blooded child killer. He deserves to rot in hell. :furious: His current wife (his 3rd) lied on the stand about him being in bed with her on the night of the murders. She helped a child killer go free, so IMO, she's guilty as well. :furious:

BTW, I've been to the Fort Worth mansion. It was a restaurant a few years back. Our waitress took us on a tour which included the wine cellar (basement), where Andrea was murdered. I wasn't the same after seeing the tiny room where that precious child :angel: was murdered by Thomas Cullen Davis. The tour was fascinating, but I wish I had not gone down to see the basement. I completely loathe this man. :furious:

while he may not have gotten what he deserved and burned this time, he will one day.

I was refering to the wife he stabbed Pricilla.

This guy was identified by two of the victims!
His campaign to discredit them was disgusting and I can't believe he killed that little girl in cold blood and just walked free.

Infuriating, isn't it. Priscilla actually watched him shoot her, the girl ran from him and saw him shoot at her.

The DA never did prosecute him for the shooting of Bubba and Bev.
There is no statute of limitations.

I wonder if he caused the fire in order to collect the insurance??

Cullen is not exactly rolling in the money these days.

Personally I think its travesty that he isn't sitting an a DR prison cell.
He Hardly has the money or the means to buy off a jury like the last time ...
The DA should go at him while he is down and nail his ass to the wall once and for all.

Its not the 80's anymore Mr Davis my guess is this time a jury would throw your butt in prison.

We should all write the DA.
Poor Pricilla died of cancer and according to her older daughter she refused to take any pain pills in the end because of the accusations made by Cullen's attorney.

For this man to not pay for his crimes is not right.
How do they NOT charge him with shooting Bev and killing Bubba?
He doesn't have the money to fight it now.

Michelle, here is a list from amazon. I've read them all and can't remember one from the next so I don't know which one to recommend. Sorry. It's a very intriguing case though. It's what got me hooked on true crime.

There is also a mini-series about the case starring Heather Locklear as Priscilla. It was pretty campy I thought and could have been done so much better.

Here is another book. Amazon says it's currently unavailable but you might find a copy on ebay.

There is one other book about the case that I can't remember the title of and I can't find on amazon. I'll look some more.

I thought Blood Will Tell by Gary Cartwright told the story well. Others might have better recommendations, so don't necessarily rely on mine!

Remember Cullen Davis well.
Best example to date in my opinion of $$$ buying the verdict.

Heartoftexas...thanks for bumping up this thread. I had not heard of his house fire...total news to me.

I read one of the books about these murders a few years back and was infuriated at how this a$$ got off scot-free. What a horrible excuse for a man. And how he made up such lame excuses about the recorded conversation regarding killing the judge....and the jury bought it! I still can't figure out which book it was but it was what hooked me on true crime as well.

This guy deserves every nasty, rotten thing life has to offer him....along with his lying current wife.

"According to the profile on Power, Privilege and Justice and on A&E's American Justice, Cullen Davis became a born-again Christian and is now a Christian missionary."

Guess this was after he lost his fortune and declared bankruptcy. I tried to read a book about him one time, but got so mad and upset about what he seemed to be getting away with that I never finished it.

While discussing this case with a friend I found this bit of information I have never read or heard of. :thud:
Of course the books I read about TCD were published well before 2004.

Thought I would share the links.

In 2004, Billy Vickers, a man sentenced to death in an unrelated case, claimed that he had been the one who murdered Farr and Wilborn.[7]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T._Cullen_Davis

Then more information about Billy Vickers.

In his last statement, Vickers admitted to killing Phillip Kinslow. "It was nothing personal, I was just trying to make a living," he said. Vickers then took credit for more than a dozen other killings. "I'm sorry, but I am not sure how many. There must be a dozen or 14, I believe, all total." He only mentioned one specific case: "One I would like to clear up his Cullen Davis, where he was charged with shooting his wife," Vickers said, without elaborating. Davis, a former Texas oil millionaire, was tried and acquitted of killing his 12-year-old stepdaughter in 1976. Davis's wife, Priscilla, was also shot, and her boyfriend was killed.

"I wish to say to my family, I'm sorry for all the grief I've put you through," Vickers added. He was pronounced dead at 6:21 p.m.

Jack Strickland, a former prosecutor who worked on the Cullen Davis case, said that he had never heard of Vickers and doubted that he was involved in the shooting. "I certainly don't put any stock in it, not the slightest bit," Strickland said.

I must say I agree with JS about this pile of stuff. :rolleyes:

............................
I wonder WHY a man would lie at his deathbed, his last words?

Ordinarily, they tell the truth while drawing their last breath?

It seems to me most prosecutors have a stake in saying they were not wrong afterall for prosecuting a man for murder?

However, even "If" this guy is telling the truth, it still stands to reason he did it for money and for T. Cullen Davis who hired him. At least that is how I'd perceive it on the face of it. He (Davis) is the only one with a motive.

Unless this other man looked just like him, I can't see three people mistaking him for Cullen Davis. Also, if the two women were shouting the wrong name, it would have behoved this other guy to take off, figuring no one would ever find him. They would be looking for Cullen Davis.

Talk about a good lawyer!! Either that, or the members of the jury made more than their stipend from the county while sitting on that jury!

RIP Andrea! The boogey man can't hide from God!!
