CLEVELAND – The family of a woman found dead in a parking lot in Cleveland last week seek justice for their murder and are now concerned for their own safety as the killer is still at large.
Just before 1:30 a.m. last Saturday, Cleveland police found the body of 39-year-old Francina Davis in a parking lot on the 4800 block of Scovill Avenue.
Police said the mother of three suffered severe head trauma and was in a car before being pushed onto the property. Police said they could not determine if the woman received a gunshot wound or if her injury was caused by other trauma.
Family members remember Francina as “the life of the party” that loved her family and liked to joke.
“Loved to smile. Oh my god she had a smile. Unforgettable, beautiful smile, ”said Donna Davis, Francina’s aunt. “It’s just very devastating. She was a good person, a cool person to be around. “
They said when hours went by without hearing from Francina, they knew something was wrong.
“My daughter called me every day. I don’t care who she’s with. ‘Hey Ma, how are you? ‘”Said Charlotte Davis, Francina’s mother.
Her worst fears were realized later that day. Francina’s sister Theresa Davis saw a photo on a social media post and linked it to information from Francina’s nephews and friends about the clothes she had last seen.
“In the picture you can see her boot. When he told me which shoes she was wearing, I knew when I saw the boot that it was her, ”said Theresa.
Family members believe Francina knows her killer and now that they are in mourning they also fear for their own safety.
“That guy, you have to catch him because he knows where I live and I’m scared for my life,” said Charlotte.
You advocate justice and peace.
“I just want him to be caught. This is what I want. I want him caught, ”said Charlotte.
“I just want it to be peace. I want him to be caught so that my mother will be at peace because she has not only lost her daughter but is also going out of her mind, ”said Theresa.
The police have not yet named a suspect for Francina’s murder. They ask anyone with information about the incident to call Detectives at 216-623-5464 or CrimeStoppers at 216-25-CRIME.
