BREAKING: Davis Situation Changing

Keith Davis

TheRanchReport.com is closely monitoring new information that is expected to be released later today regarding Cowboys safety Keith Davis.

The story regarding the events that surrounded the shooting of Cowboys safety Keith Davis more than 10 days ago could be changing, TheRanchReport.com has learned.

As first reported on July 16, Davis was shot twice while driving in the early morning hours on a Dallas interstate.

Authorities issued statements afterwards indicating that an attempted car-jacking had occured, and Davis himself said that he was simply returning home from a family gathering in Shreveport, Louisiana.

At the time, TheRanchReport.com's Mike Fisher suggested there were significant holes in Davis' story in an July 19 article.

Quoting the article:

1) Keith is saying something about returning from Shreveport in time to attend church. Does that jive with being in the car at 5 a.m.? "Shreveport. ... and then church''? Given that they go together like "Lance Armstrong'' and "comedy at the ESPYs,'' does it ring true at all?

2) Police say the gunshots unloaded into the rear of the car suggest that the shooter wasn't trying to kill Davis. OK, but don't the gunshots that reached his head and thigh scream otherwise?

3) There is the suggestion that the 2003 strip-club incident and this incident are completely unrelated. What are the odds of that being true?

4) Police were very slow and very reluctant to ID the "other person'' in Davis' car. I immediately knew that meant it was a woman. Which police have now confirmed. Why the slowness? Why the reluctance? And who is she? I mean, unless she's, say, Barbara Bush, why the hush-hush?

5) In fact, why do both the Davis shooting cases seem so similar in at least one regard: The slow pace at which details were released? In the 2003 case, some reports still insist the establishment was a "nightclub'' when it was in fact a "strip club.'' Davis still insists he was there at 2:15 a.m. to "pick up a friend,'' yet at the same time, as the story goes, he ended up in a dispute while protecting his girlfriend. Was she the "friend" being picked up? What was she doing at a strip club? Is she the same woman from this case?

6) And then the logical follow-up question to Keith's passenger: Honey, are you SURE you don't know the shooter?

7) Oh, yeah. ... do carjackers generally strike vehicles traveling at 65 MPH on an open interstate? Do they generally fill the car body full of holes? And if they shoot the driver in the head, do they enjoy jacking a car that just crashed into a wall because the fellow in the driver's seat is dead?

8) And more on the nature of carjacking: Davis says he pulled over after being shot. If so, why didn't the carjackers pull over as well, and claim their prize? If it's a carjacking, why didn't they jack? Why did they keep driving?

9) And one more: There has got to be an easier way to steal a car than to attempt murder on the driver of a moving vehicle. Right?



Now it appears, the same holes discussed by Mr. Fisher are making their way to those involved with the case and that details will be released later this evening specifically refuting the information Davis gave police 10 days ago.

TheRanchReport.com will have more on this breaking news, as it is released to the general public later this evening.
