In the summer of 2007, a very pregnant twenty-six-year-old Jessie Davis was eagerly preparing for the arrival of her daughter Chloe. She was thrilled her two-year-old son Blake would soon have a baby sister. Jessie was a single mother with a good job and a great support system. She loved being a mother and made it the center of her world. On June 14th, Jessie went shopping at a local market and chatted with her mom on the phone. However, later that day no one could get ahold of Jessie.
