    Bald Head Island is exquisite, just beautiful. I get some mailers from them, as I had wanted to visit. I still might, but to tell you the truth, I have the creeps now about it after finding out about this case. It certainly is a beautiful place, no question.

    Oh laces, You should go visit. It really is beautiful and full of mystique. I don't feel that you would be in any danger. Kate Gosslin and her brood vacationed there.

    I hope my post didn't frighten you. Summer is a good time to visit and there is lots of fun stuff to do. (The island is more desolate and isolated and spooky in fall and winter tho.)

    Also, Southport is such a quaint little town with lots of unique shops and good seafood which is well worth a visit!

    It's only a short drive down 40

    And here comes the Understatement of the Year: There is lots & lots & lotsa money on BHI; money talks and BS walks.

    It's hard for some folks to stand up to some of those big money folks -- they're paying their salaries, and some of the $$ folks know people in powerful positions or make it sound like they do.... It's the way things seem to work -- and being on the outskirts of heady stuff like that can certainly throw your equilibrium into quite a whirl. I'm definitely not sympathizing or defending anyone, but I'm just saying that's the way it is with some folks... And we had this there at BHI those days, I'm sure. And I'm also sure that there are other folks on that island who would have none of that kind of thing from either side of the aisle, so to speak.

    And it is a gorgeous place...

    Thank you!

    On behalf of the family, I would like to thank everyone who has supported and continue to care about the death of my sister Davina. Thanks for extending me the opportunity to join here. We have two goals: first, the name of the person(s) who did the actual killing; second, those who planned and covered up the murder. In some ways I believe the latter group is more guilty than the first. The family has suffered for a long time; if there is any law left worth defending in this county, it should be the one that hold offenders accountable for harming police officers on duty. It is despicable to me that in my sister's case, law enforcement helped deny her justice. Again, I am happy to be here.

    Elaine, Thank you for joining WS and stating the goals of your family. I agree, it is despicable that law enforcement helped deny Dee justice.

    Do you think that the new DA has the names of the three hispanic men? They were supposedly checked out, right?

    I also have a favor to ask of you. (if you have time) Do you have any links bookmarked about the case throughout these past years that you can share with us? I lost all I had saved a few months back when my laptop crashed.

    I'm glad you are here!

    When someone is going to commit suicide with a handgun they usually will put the gun in their mouth, or to the temple. Not to the back of the head. This sounds like an execution.

    its about time they re-opened this case! i never believed that she committed suicide....

    thanx for the update, i really didnt think they would ever get it re-opened.

    Bits and Pieces

    wm, here are some of the articles or videos that were after the SBI and the DA refused to reopen Dee's case. The latest one is from the new DA where he asked for information from the public. The reporter from Channel 11 in Durham was a very young reporter for WECT in 1999. When she saw where the case was being reopened, she sought to do the story several weeks ago. She did an excellent job interviewing Dad and she surprised the former DA and he comes across looking and sounding like the 'person' he is.

    Yes, the DA does have the names of the three Hispanics. They went over on the 6:00 ferry that night and left on the first ferry in the morning after they had filled out that sorry excuse for an investigative sheet for the police. They were working at the time in Charlotte, NC for a company that does lawns and such. What they were supposed to be working on all night is anybody's guess. And, nobody knows where they spent the night. At the time I came across the rap sheets on them, it was over 75 pages. Five years, at least, after the Bald Head Island chief tried to get someone to question them and was refused by the BHI officials, the SBI came and told us that the men had been cleared. But then, later, we found out that the SBI agent here had called an SBI agent in Charlotte who called the employer of these men. He declared that they were all church-going, tax paying good citizens. One of the men got a DWI in Raleigh the next week, so my definition and his do not agree. As a matter of fact, the new DA has an identical twin brother who is DA in neighboring New Hanover County. Jon David has a photographic memory. The two brothers worked in Dade County, Florida before they came here. When Jon read the info about these three Hispanics, (one of which was supposed to have been deported), he remembered them from court down there. I hope the info I've seen along is helpful.

    One thing I can add, as much as I find it repugnant. There is a young man interested in writing a book about this case. He and his family used to vacation on BHI. When he approached the family, we decided to decline his invitation to work with him. We believe the story is told. He informed me it was poorly written and needed his skills (he is a tv reporter in Va.) to tell it better. He has nagged me wanting me to send him all the information from my book. (Apparently he has no idea of how much he was talking about me copying to send him). Further, I don't like doing his leg work for him. Any penny we get from the sale of the book goes into the fund to help others later. He certainly hasn't mention any donations from his book. I have had him get others to approach me through email to ask questions, too. The last time, I told this person to go to the new DA if he wanted new info. The reporter told me he had connections on the island. If he finds new info, somebody will be in trouble for not coming forward, is all I can say. Plus, he'll be hard pressed to find more than we have. We just need to get some people on the stand in a courtroom. So if he should stumble across this discussion and I realize it's him, I will get really quiet. My sister doesn't deserve his self centered, career climbing goals. On the other hand, the girl from Channel 11 contacted the DA first before talking to any of us. She didn't have to do that, but it shows to me that she is a professional, interested in helping the case, just like she said.
    What goes on in the dark comes to the light.

    Bald Head Island

    I would like Davina's friends to know that I finally got a badge from BHI. It was not hers, it took over two years, and an active policeman from another state put pressure on to get it. But it is with me. Since they didn't even send a flower to her funeral, I feel like I have some kind of acknowledgement from them that she did in fact work there. Come to find out, the police chief was going to send a broken one, but the town manager sent it back for a decent one.

    Some Bald Head Island citizens were incensed when the book first came out and we had our share of discussions online through WWAYTV3. Finally they came to realize that if people like those Hispanics were on their island at night, perhaps there was something to what the book was trying to get across. A few of them even tried to leave flowers for her, too, but they had no better luck than we do. Last year in October, some of us met at the pier on Oak Island where Dee and Grandpa used to fish. It was cold, dark, windy. But we each had a yellow rose, each of us said something and then through our roses into the ocean toward BHI. We talked a few minutes among ourselves, and as we turned to leave, I looked back and the roses were glowing in the light from the pier. The wind or whatever, had blown them into an outline of an angel. It wasn't just me. I called them all back and all of us saw it! Too bad we have to show our support of her in the dark, away from where she died.

    As far as going to Bald Head Island, they have gone up on the ferry ticket so much, I don't know when I'll go back. I am the one in the family who needs, wants to go. The rest of the family hates it, but I tell them, she consecrated ground out there and they might think they own it, but they don't own that little spot where they left her like garbage for her to bleed out on the ground.
    It is a very pretty place. One advertisement they had said, The island had a soul. I responded, if it has one, it's blood-stained. So if you've never been there and can afford it, please, do so. Just don't go around the lighthouse at night.

    This is one if not the worst case of a onduty Police man/and-or/ woman murder I read in my whole life.

    There sure did not show no code of blue respect on this case. And that is a huge shame! , I hope this case will bother the heads of all police depts and everybody else that worked on this case until day they die..

    The code of blue states if fellow officer is killed in line of duty all police officers no matter where they from should work together to find the killer as soon as possible.. This sure didn't work in this one case.. Make me wonder if I hear a police officer is shot or in bad auto accident if I should go again to the hospital and stand in line with the others for hours on end just incase the officer need more blood or anything else..All I am is a Vol. Fire Fighter. Not Police officer.

    Bare with us, you now got some of the best investigators bar-none in USA on your side now what I seen from fellow board members...It's just will take some time and 1 lucky break to bring the whole rotten house of card's to come tumbling down..

    I couldn't agree more. Somehow this case was intended to be swept under the rug by those responsible. Guess what? Ain't GONNA HAPPEN! They didn't realize who they were messing with when they took down Davina. I have no doubt that she will see justice here, although she will be looking on from another perspective. Time does NOT heal ALL wounds.
    Totally behind the family, here. I don't know any of those involved, but they have a friend in laces.
