Jessie Davis, the mother of a 2-year-old boy named Blake, was first reported missing in Ohio on June 15, 2007. She was nine months pregnant and about a week away from giving birth to her second child, Chloe. The father of her children, Bobby Cutts Jr., was married to another woman at the time. A little over a week after she was last seen, Davis was found dead on June 23, 2007. Her murderer? None other than Bobby Cutts Jr.
The murder of Jessie Davis is often compared to that of Laci Peterson, as both were pregnant women who were killed by their significant others. Though Davis and Cutts were not married, the fact that she was pregnant and that Cutts was a police officer led to quite a bit of media attention. On February 27, 2008, Cutts was sentenced to life in prison. He is eligible for parole after serving 57 years of his prison term. Read on below to learn more about the horrible crimes committed against Davis and her unborn baby.
