Davis linked to murder


Niagara Gazette — Fatico said Davis was “upset” and told the two women to contact Bradberry again and tell him they were coming back. When they returned to Bradberry’s apartment building, Wilson was supposed to use her cell phone case to prop open the security door so Davis could get in.

But Fatico said that didn’t work, so after Davis texted her to tell the door was locked, she left the apartment and let Davis in. Once Davis was inside, Fatico went to his van and waited.

Five minutes later, Wilson came out and hopped in the back seat of the vehicle.

“She was out of breath,” Fatico said. “She told me Matthew and Mr. Bradberry were fighting.”

Prosecutors and investigators claim Bradberry was killed after being held down on his sofa and asphyxiated with a shirt.

Fatico told the jury a half hour after she left the apartment, Davis came out and got in the van. He was holding a white garbage bag.

Inside the bag, Fatico said Davis had two jars of marijuana. When she asked Davis what had happened, he told her, “Nothing really happened.” 

Fatico said Davis gave Wilson $50 for her part in the plot. 

The following day, Davis asked Fatico and Wilson what had happened the night before. When Wilson started to recount what happened, Davis stopped her and told her, “Naw, we was chillin’. Nothing happened.”

On Aug. 23, Fatico said Davis called her and told, “Mr. Bradberry had passed away.” The following day, Fatico said, she awoke to find her home “surrounded by police.”

Fatico said she lied to police about being at Bradberry’s apartment and tried to delete text messages and pictures of Davis from her phone. She also called Davis, who told her to meet him in Buffalo.

When Fatico arrived in Buffalo, she said Davis had left town. 

Her testimony in the case will resume later this morning.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
