THe sister was interviewed on TV last night stating the accusers friends had been questioning the brother about what he told the police.
She also stated that the missing boy didn't actually witness the shooting, he heard the shots, he was in the bathroom and tried to get out the window but couldn't so he waited awhile and then left the house. He was later questioned by police and told them what he knew.
The sister/family is convinced it is related to the murder.

lady-eowyn, thanks so much for searching this out. I really wanted us to have a thread for him but couldn't remember his name since I was half-asleep during the broadcast.
I worry that this young man is already gone, and that it's just a matter of finding him. Hoping that a miracle brings him home alive, and that maybe he's just hiding out somewhere.

FOX Carolina The Ten O'Clock News Missing Teen Will Be Featured On America's Most Wanted
WHNS Video Player
Spartanburg teenager, Alex Davon Buckman, disappeared in late March. But his family says he didn't run away, they believe he was kidnapped. His case has been profiled in both local and national news and his story is about to get even more national attention this weekend by being featured on America's Most Wanted...
The family fears that Davon's disappearance is linked to the murder of Shamon Martin back in December. Investigators say Davon was hanging out with some friends when he heard the fatal shots fired. Deputies arrested Davon's friend Clifton Fleming and charged him with the murder. A few months later Davon disappeared and the last person believed to have been with Davon is Clifton's own brother, Ralph Fleming. LaCresha says she can explain the time lapse. She says, "Because Cliff was in jail (under house arrest) at the time and we had no problems until Ralph Fleming got out of jail."
Deputies though say they are skeptical the murder and Davon's disappearance are connected because there were actual eyewitnesses. But the Buckman family fears there was some animosity between the Fleming brothers and Davon ever since the murder of Martin. LaCresha says, "But the thing with the other witnesses is that he didn't know them, Davon was his friend. So to have your friend cooperating with police, it makes it personal."
LaCresha says she wants people to realize that Davon is missed and loved by many..."

amw.com | Alex Buckman - Missing Person
... Davon's family says he was quite nervous about being a witness to a murder. Friends of his say that Clifton was not too pleased with Davon placing him at the scene of the murder. Clifton's older brother Ralph was also critical of Davon's cooperation with the cops.
One day Ralph paid Davon a visit. According to Davon's mother, Ralph dropped by the house to ask Davon what exactly he told police. So Davon went inside his home and asked his mother for a copy of the statement. He showed Ralph the police statement and tried to convince him that he did not "rat" on his brother. Davon's mother said Ralph did not appear to be convinced.
On March 24, 2005, Davon was hanging out with some friends in the Howard and Williams Street areas of Spartanburg. He did not come home that night. His mother says that she did not immediately worry because Davon used to stay out from time to time--but she says he always called her. However, this time Davon had not come home nor had he called anyone.
A few days later, Davon's mother received an anonymous phone call concerning her son. She immediately called the authorities. "We got a phone call that someone had heard he had been beaten up and put in the trunk of a white 4-door Mercury, and the guys were riding around with him in the trunk of the car," said LaCresha. "I believe he has been kidnapped. I believe he has been beaten. I don't know if he's alive. We believe he is the victim of a conspiracy. We just want him found..."

Yikes. This is so close to home. I live about 20 minutes from Spartanburg. My good friend lives in Inman. Inman is a very tiny town, close to Spartanburg.
I feel sad for Alex's family. Especially his baby, who will never remember his daddy.

I'm so sorry for Davon's family. My heart is with all of you.
