T. Cullen Davis: The Best Justice Money Can Buy

Photo Gallery

Andrea Wilborn was 12 years old at the time of her murder. People could not comprehend why she was killed, or why anyone would want to harm anyone at the Davis home.

Priscilla Davis came from a poor background, but she was very attractive. She referred to her shapely bust as "the balcony", and dressed to show it off.

Stan Farr was Priscilla's boyfriend. He had been a basketball player, and was large and athletic. During the struggle with the gunman while wounded, he bought enough time for Priscilla to exit the house, but then died when the gunman managed to get off a few more shots.

Judge Tipps presided at the Davis trial over the solicitation to commit murder of Judge Joe Eidson. Sketch artist Harold Maples drew McCrory testifying that Cullen Davis had paid him $25,000.00 after showing him a photo of Judge Eidson apparently dead. Eidson was actually never harmed.

Priscilla Davis before her death from cancer. The prosecutor from the original trial had so upset her during his character attack of her during trial, that even in the final stages of her illness, she refused to take painkillers.
