Son Charged In Stabbing Spoke Of Devil
- Last month, 24-year-old Mark Becker allegedly shot and killed his former high school football coach in Parkersburg. A witness heard the shooter scream, "Make sure Satan knows!" right after the assault. Becker was discharged from a mental health unit at a Waterloo hospital the day before the slaying.
- In April, a Delaware County man, Jesse Fierstine, 32, allegedly attacked his 63-year-old father and used a penknife to carve a pacemaker from the man's chest. Fierstine has since undergone psychiatric evaluation that will determine when and if he stands trial for attempted murder.
- In 2005, a judge ruled that a former Maharishi University of Management student was insane when he stabbed a classmate to death. Shuvender Sem had been hospitalized nearly a dozen times for psychiatric problems.
About 41 percent of Iowa's more than 8,000 prisoners are mentally ill, according to the state Department of Corrections. When Davis routinely accused others of being the devil, his family shrugged it off. "I just thought it was because he was brought up spiritually," Windsor said. She knew her son needed help, but she didn't think he was dangerous. Davis was arrested in November after he started fires in the backyard and driveway of his grandfather's former house, down the street from his mother's home. "He was trying to kill the spirits," Davis' grandfather, Arvell Windsor, said. "He had painted himself red and black." Davis moved in with his grandfather when he was 17 and stayed there on and off for several years. "Everybody was the devil but him," Arvell Windsor said. When Arvell Windsor remarried and moved to be with his new wife, Davis stayed in the house, even though there was no electricity or water. Neighbors who reported the fires to police said they had witnessed strange behavior from Davis, such as when he walked down the street in a parka in 100-degree heat. "That cat was out there," neighbor Jeff Cavil said. "His mom really tried to get help for him, she really did. But nobody would keep him locked up, and he ended up stabbing her. It's a shame."Lolita Windsor convinced a judge to send Deshawn Davis, against his will, for an evaluation at Broadlawns Medical Center several months after he graduated from high school. She said he was hospitalized for about a week, but Davis, then 18, did not give permission to release his medical information, and none of that information is contained in court documents. Broadlawns spokesman Rick Barrett said adults, by law, must give written consent for medical information to be released, even to relatives. Des Moines Police Sgt. Lori Lavorato said there is nothing in police records from the November arrest that points to Davis' strange behavior. She said a detective marked "No" under "mental health problems" on a checklist that was completed before Davis was taken to jail. "If he would have said he was seeing demons, the officer would have written, 'Yes,' " Lavorato said. Davis spent 11 days in jail, pleaded guilty to reckless use of fire, and was released. Arvell Windsor's former house was foreclosed on last year, but Davis returned to stay there. He broke in four times while it was being renovated by a new owner. Davis was eventually arrested May 8. "He thought that was his home," his mother said. "It was his home before." Davis was released from jail and had been ordered to be in court on June 3. He stayed with his mother in the meantime, in his old room in the basement. His name is written in wax on the door. Below it, also in wax, is scrawled: "Great One." Star Salazar, 29, along with her husband and seven children, moved next door to Windsor two days before the stabbing. She said she saw Davis wash the base of a tree trunk and gave it offerings of bread, pour vodka on a dandelion, and hold a bowl of what appeared to be urine and spin around to spread it in the yard. Salazar said she also saw neighborhood children walk by and kick the window to Davis' basement window to taunt him. On May 28, Lolita Windsor had just finished talking to a friend on the telephone and had turned on the television. It was late. She told Davis to go to bed so he could wake up early to look for a job. He went instead to the darkened kitchen and opened a drawer. Windsor said Davis repeatedly stabbed her over the next two-and-a-half hours. When he broke a serrated knife during the attacks, he went back to the kitchen for another - twice. Court documents say Windsor was stabbed 30 times. Windsor said surgeons patched 74 wounds. Two of Windsor's other children - a girl, 10, and a boy, 7 - were asleep in a nearby bedroom. They awoke to their mother's screams for help, but stayed put and weren't harmed, Windsor said. From under the coffee table, Windsor said she pleaded with her son for a telephone: "I won't tell them you did this." It worked. Windsor called her father, who called police. The first officer to arrive saw Davis near the back door and ordered him to the ground. Davis pointed at the house and whispered: "She's inside." "He had a very distant look in his eyes," the officer wrote in a report. Windsor continues to recover at her mother's home a few blocks away from her own. She hasn't gone back since the stabbing. Her hands and arms took the brunt of the attacks. Windsor, who works at Mercy Medical Center, says she knew to protect vital areas, like her neck. Her thumb and three fingers on her left hand are still numb, but doctors hope the feeling will return with time. Davis was in court on June 9. The judge ordered a psychological examination because Davis didn't "appear to understand the charges or the reasons he is in court," according to court documents. Davis went before the judge "with Kleenex stuffed in his nose and hanging out several inches - he says he has a runny nose." "It wasn't my son who did this to me," Windsor said through tears. "That wasn't him." A hearing is set for July 14 to determine if Davis can stand trial. Windsor hasn't seen him since the stabbing, but she was told he will likely be sent away for six months for treatment. She hopes her real son comes back when it's over.

Alabama Hopes 'Ghost Trail' Will Scare Up More Tourism Dollars
•Richmond, Va.: Demand from visitors was so high this year another tour was added to the May through October Haunts of Richmond schedule, says Sandi Bergman, who started the company with her husband, Scott in 2004.
•Cape Fear area of North Carolina: The city of Wilmington has nightly ghost walks that travel through the 275-year-old alleys and streets of the port city. This year an additional two routes are being added to the ghost walks, says Connie Nelson, communications and public relations director for the Wilmington/Cape Fear Coast Convention and Visitors Bureau.
•Long Beach Island, N.J.: Lantern lit ghost walking tours will return this summer to the Town of Beach Haven, says Maggie M. O'Neill, who started the tours as a way to inform visitors of the town's history. The tours began last year.
•Houston: Discover Houston Tours added cemetery tours this spring, held each Sunday, says Lindsey Brown, director of marketing and public relations for the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau.For most people, the attraction to scary stories is just natural, says Dr. Allen K. Hess, a psychology professor at Auburn University Montgomery. "If life were all vanilla it wouldn't taste good," he said. " Whether its boredom or curiosity, seeking arousal is part of being human. We are attracted the unknown and a certain element of danger. We are after the thrill being scared provides." The Black Belt trail is planned to be a self-guided driving affair. The ghost stories will also be told on video that will be posted on a web-site. The trail set to open this summer with stories from Dallas, Perry and Wilcox counties. The effort is gathering stories from each of the counties in the region, which will be added to the tour as work is completed. The stops include the St. James Hotel on Selma's Water Avenue. Overlooking the muddy waters of the Alabama River, the building's history goes back to 1837. Corner Room 301 is said to be haunted by the outlaw Jesse James. He and his brother, Frank, visited relatives in the area after the Civil War and stayed in the hotel, says William Ezell, the hotel's manager. Jesse James stayed in the room and the light is said to be his ghost looking out the window watching for the law. "Jesse stayed in that room several times, because it offered good views of the streets around the hotel," Ezell says. "His brother stayed in a separate room in the hotel, so there was always a chance of one of them getting away." In the Black Belt, it's common for people to be accepting, even welcoming, of spirits seen as benevolent. That's the case with Charles and Jenny Holmes of Marion, a Perry County town about 30 miles northwest of Selma. In 1978 the Holmes moved an antebellum home about four miles down the road to their farm. The renovated the home and in 1980 they moved in. This year they opened a bed and breakfast in the home. Jenny Holmes says she has seen a mist-like form, wearing a white gown, several times in the front hall. "I guess when we moved the house, she decided to come along," Jenny Holmes said. "I've never felt any fear or have doubted what I had seen. We have three sons, grown and moved away now. Of course my husband and boys wondered about me when I first told them what I had seen. But my oldest son has seen her too, so we just accept her."
