A clearinghouse for information, analysis, and resources related to state sanctioned violence in the United States
Killed October 25th, 1914, near Newport, Arkansas. Davis was taken from jail around noon on a Sunday, and lynched in the courthouse yard “about a stone’s throw” from where church services were in progress, according to news accounts. No arrests were made, nor was the sheriff disciplined for failing to protect his prisoner. However, another man arrested on the same charges as Davis was taken to Little Rock for safe-keeping.
