PRESS RELEASE: Mahogany Davis Investigation





On May 11, 2002, Mahogany Davis died from injuries inflicted by an unknown attacker.  Shortly after 4:00 a.m. a concerned neighbor called the police after they saw Ms. Davis come out of her apartment.  Police found Ms. Davis outside her apartment and she was transported to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, where she died.


Unsolved homicides in the City of Fairbanks are never closed until solved, and investigators have continuously followed up on all reported leads, witnesses, and evidence since the time of Ms. Davis’s death. The Fairbanks Police Department has intensified the investigation since December, at the request of Mayor John Eberhart.  Police Chief Aragon has assigned multiple investigators to the case and has also been looking at the available information.  “I have found in past cases that sometimes a new set of eyes will lead to questions or lines of investigation that had not previously been queried,” said Chief Aragon.  “We want this case solved for Mahogany and her family.”


Ms. Davis’ family is also asking the public for assistance, and they have put up a reward of $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest and prosecution of the person responsible for her death.  The family has started a Go Fund Me page to help raise additional funds for the reward.  The family’s request coincides with the recent reinstatement of the Crime Stoppers hotline program in Fairbanks.


People with information about the case can call the Crime Stoppers line at 907.456.CLUE (2853), and those wishing to donate to the Go Fund Me site to raise money for the reward for information can find that page at:
