The body of 26 year old, 9 month pregnant Jessie Davis was found in June 24, 2007 along with her full term fetus. It is believed by authorities that Jessie Davis was killed in her home near North Canton on June 14. However, the Summit County Medical Examiner ruled Jessie Davis’ death a homicide; however, she could not determine the exact cause of death.
Summit County Medical Examiner Lisa Kohler ruled that the manner of death was a homicide but offered no other details in a news release.
“Based on our examination of the remains, as well as consideration of supplemental laboratory testing and investigative findings, her cause of death will be listed as unspecified homicidal violence,” Kohler said.
Investigators previously stated that the advanced decomposition of the body would make determining a cause difficult. (Fox News)
