UPDATE: 11/27/15 – Davis’s head has still not been recovered. Its current location is unknown, the sources said.
A headless body found in a Newark garage on Monday has been identified as a missing woman that has not been seen since Oct. 30, 2015.
Pamela Davis, 51, was located after someone called the police about a foul smell coming from a home on the 800 block of South 11th Street, reports ABC 7 news. Authorities found a body underneath a blanket inside the garage of the home. The body was bound and headless.
The home where Davis’ body was found is being rented by a local neighborhood mechanic. He was taken in for questioning by police and is now being called a person of interest in the murder.
The family had reported Davis, a mother of two who lived on 8th Street, a few blocks away from where she was found, missing after she did not return home on that Friday.
