    TX - Shania Gray, 16, killed before rape testimony, Carrollton, 6 Sept 2012

    CARROLLTON, Texas (AP) - A Texas man has been charged with murder in the death of a 16-year-old girl who police said they believe was killed to keep her from testifying at the man's upcoming sexual assault trial.

    Police in the Dallas suburb of Carrollton say Franklin B. Davis, 30, of Irving was charged with capital murder Sunday after confessing to the death of Shania Gray. Gray was last seen alive Thursday afternoon at Hebron High School in the Dallas suburb of Carrollton. Her body was found Saturday in a secluded area near the Trinity River.

    Carrollton police spokesman Jon Stovall told The Associated Press in an email that police believe Davis killed Gray because she was about to testify against him.

    I've been hearing a lot of news about this on my local news stations and it is just awful.

    Oh God bless that child. And her family. Doing what's right, at 16, can be a tough thing to go through, and to end up with her murdered?

    I lose more faith in humanity every day...

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    How stupid. A waste of a another precious life. Did he think they wouldn't suspect him if she showed up dead?

    Thoughts for her family.

    Hebron's principal issued a news release to parents and students.

    "Based upon the most recent facts, the police department has shared that this situation was not an abduction," wrote Principal Scot Finch. "We encourage you to talk with your student this evening about this situation as well as getting into cars with acquaintances or friends."

    Yah, okay, let's minmize the crime already. He was not an acquaintance or a friend, He was her rapist. I'm pretty sure that her getting into his car, under the circumstances, constitutes an abduction. It was not a stranger abduction....most of them aren't. I have no faith in that principal, just saying.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    True indeed and with the evidence needed to send him straight to death row. Unfortunately our tax dollars will support his sorry arse for the next 20+ years but at least we have the satisfaction of knowing there will be a day when he will no longer take up space on this earth.

    So very true, what a strong brave young lady, and that is how you will always be remembered.

    I hope this piece of filth rots.

    Not only is this horrible for Shania and her family, but what it will do to future rape cases is too. There will be less girls that will now come forward in fear of being killed by their rapist. This is so sad on so many levels.

    What a tragic story. Sometimes life is so unbelievably unfair.

    I'm sorry that this young girl was taken much too soon, with so much life ahead of her.




    Rest in peace, Shania.

    Any man's death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in mankind,
    Therefore, send not to know, for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee.

    BREAKING: Franklin B. Davis grabbed a sheriff's deputy's gun and ran out of the hospital where he was receiving medical treatment. He is holed up in a van and surrounded by police.
