    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.

    Nah...not karma! If it was...he would have burned up with the house. This guy is as bad a Pukerson.

    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.

    This demon deserved the death penalty just for what he did to that poor kitten.

    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.
    Racehorse Haynes at his best.
    Unbelievable.

    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.

    He survived a house fire? Wow, the man upstairs must have something really special planned for his exit from this world...
    Just my opinion, of course.

    "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.
    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.

    ............................
    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.

    They controlled the metaphorical thread of life of every mortal from birth to death."
