Man Shot Wife and Stepson in Apparent Murder-Suicide in Northwest Dade
Authorities are still trying to piece together the puzzle after they found three bodies inside a home near NW 55th Court and 193rd Lane early this morning. According to unconfirmed reports, Charlie Davis is suspected of killing his wife and his 20-year-old stepson before turning the gun on himself.
Jeffrey Eskridge Sr. tells WSVN that his 16-year-old daughter informed him that his ex-wife, 42-year-old Valerie Davis, and his 20-year-old son, Jeffrey Eskridge Jr., had been killed by Davis. The 16-year-old girl was not at the home at the time of the shooting.
Eskridge Sr. added that he believe the relationship between his ex-wife and her current husband was good, and that he had talked to his son just yesterday and had no reason to believe their were any problems in the home.
"He was a good boy, he was a good boy, he had his whole life ahead of him," Eskridge Sr. told NBC6. "I don't know if I'm dreaming, is this for real or what."
