The three men that were on the ferry 6:30PM are very suspicious and how she found them unstable drunk in the golf cart if they are the same men that night at 11:45 PM.

As the story goes she first sees them on the fairy at 6:30PM with beer that was reported to her by fairy personnel.

Next that night at 11:45 PM she stops over to tell men in a golf cart they are riding on the wrong side of the road. They are most likely highly intoxicated since they were spotted drinking on the fairy at about 6:30 PM. Possibly the same very three men that she came upon on the fairy on their way to Bald Head Island out for a good time.

What is the next step...who are these three men. What is their description. WHo saw them on the Fairy that night. The crew personnel of the Fairy did. What description did they give to the police. Were they interviewd for the description of these three men?

Where did they sleep that night on Bald Head Island? There must be a list with their names somewhere on the Island if they slept over or ate at a restraunt.

On the tape her last sentence that was cut off was UGU. She was starting to say the words "You Guys "

It is great to see the truth in print and available for EVERYONE to see.

Finally, maybe the powers at be will take note and decide to let political pressure take a back seat to the TRUTH and change the death certificate to MURDER so the family can at least have a little peace.

jonesworld,
The three men from the ferry were not the same three that were in the golf cart on the wrong side of the road. Those three were two men and a woman on vacation. They were with her only seconds and talked to her as she rolled down her window to tell them to move to the other side. There are names and histories to go with the mysterious three men, but the police supposedly interviewed them and announced they were good Christian gentlemen. However, further investigation found they all had long rap sheets and one had already been deported at least once.

Elaine said...

wildred, I appreciate your comments. In fact, the whole point of the web is just what you said - to let the truth come out for everyone to see. It has been kept secret long enough.

I Remember !!!!
I met Dee in Jr High and became great friends all through Jr high and even in different schools in High School remained in contact. I remember what a joy she was to know and how she could make me smile just by giving me "The Look". We attended the Jr High Prom and and I still have the photo to this day and will cherish it always.
I support your efforts to clear Davinas name... I KNOW she would never take her own life. She was too Full of life herself. Being in Public Safety myself (Paramedic) I KNOW there were so many screw ups by the officials and it is so clear there is so much more.... to this story. I watch crime scenes processed first hand and Davinas was done with the professionalism of a bunch of Clowns. May they all sleep well with themselfs knowing they cheated a beautiful young woman out of Justice !!
I send my prayers and love to the Buff family and I hope some day, somehow, the Truth will be told and you all can sleep in peace.

Hello, J. Glenn. I am so glad to hear from someone who knew Davina. Hearing from someone from who knew her gives us the strength to fight on for her. Bless you for sharing your memories of her.

sadlerbev said...

OMG! J.Glenn, it is so good to hear from you. Davina loved you like a brother! God Bless you in what you do for a living - I always thought she would have been a great paramedic, but she loved the idea of being an undercover vice officer - and she would have been a good one, too!!
We will get justice one day. It is just sad that politics and power corrupt people from doing the right thing. . .Tell others about the website and KIT!!!

I am new to this area. I am totally dismayed at what appears to be corrupt law enforcement.

I wish Davina's family success in finding justice for her so that she may truly rest in peace.

This case needs to be tried in the public court of law by the media far, far away from North Carolina. Have you contacted Dateline, 20/20, American Justice, or Dominic Dunne to tell your story? From what I read and hear in the local news, there seems to be "Justice" and then there is "Brunswick County Justice." This story is incredible!

Elaine said...

Thank you, elouise, for your comments. We have so far been unsuccessful in getting any of the shows you mentioned to pay attention, but we are still hopeful in finding some ways to get the public's attention. And, a book is in the process of being written.

Toinette said...

I know Davina's parents and know this has taken a toll on the family, financially and emotionally. I too have had a sibling murdered. I know the burden this puts on a family. I am urging anyone that may have information to please come forward and put Davina's murderers in prison; whethere they be law inforcement or a regular citizen. Lets help eachother....

Elaine said...

Toinette, we share in your loss. No one can really appreciate the experience until it happens to them. The family thanks you for your support and response.

Elaine said...

I am so glad for this website, not only in keeping Davina alive in our hearts and memories, but in knowing that there are people out there that DO care!! I do not have a computer yet, so I only get the chance to use one at mama and daddy's house when it is not being used, when the kids aren't with me, when I'm not landscaping, and I'm not running in or out. Last year on this day Glenn and I were in Cheyene, WY. for Frontier Days and Davina's ashes were scattered at '' THE DADDY OF THEM ALL'' !! She was 40 last year and it so so hard to believe that she is 41 today. Sis, I MISS YOU VERY MUCH...HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I still need to tell you everything and I especially miss your laugh! Sierra has your hands, feet,skin and body, oh yes and attitude. Tristan has your mouth and your stubborn ways. I know you are laughing alot these days, aren't ya? GOD HAS BEEN GOOD TO ME! I am trully blessed. Thanks to all of you out there like Gigi, JGlen,my family,my friends,my animals and my faith for helping me through what sometimes seems a nightmare!! To me, Davina's last day on Earth seems like a lifetime ago, then again it seems like yesterday.LOVE and GOD BLESS ALWAYS, Tanya

I too know the family of Davina /Although I didnt know her personally I feel I know her just through the family .They are the sweetest people .I see them a lot and you can just see the hurt in their eyes.And feel the pain they are going through.I too hope justice is served someday.It was a botched investigation NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT ONE.Anyone that is a parent truly has to understand where they are coming from.I mean who would have known her better .I urge everyone to purchase the book and if at all possible go to Loys book signings .Hes a great man.I havent known all of them long but it is truly a privilage to know them .Hats off to the family for following through on this tragic ordeal they have been put through.And my prayers are with them always.

cajun said...

I cannot believe what I'm reading!This is crazy!
I want to know who the high ranking N.C. official that Davina mentioned is.
Also, are you saying that the drug agent, who had allegedly broken his foot, gave you, the family, a cause of death before the autopsy findings?

J B said...

I'm a retired Sgt,From a sheriffs dept.in North Carolina with 25 years.If a third of the book Out With Three is true any person with any sense of right or wrong knows that Davina was killed and not by her own hand!!!!!A rookie wouldn't made the mistakes that were made on Bald Head Island.Sounds like a cover up to me.I've never heard of an officer not able to write a ticket or arrest any one .I'd hate to live on that island!!!!!

cajun said...

I ordered the book out here in California and just finished it for the SECOND time! Rex Gore has a LOT of explaining to do!

Did you hear the 2007 taped conversation between Hewett and Caison?
Hewett implicated himself AND Caison as "helping" Rex!
Notice Caison asking Hewett regarding his investigation "what did you do?"
Of equal importance is when Hewett(not knowing he was being taped) mentioned Caison and himself as "helping" Rex.
Casion didn't ask Hewett for clarification on what he meant, did he? He just kind of left that alone, didn't he?
I have a feeling justice is coming for Davina and her family.

J B said...

Wonder when someone in law enforcement is going to wake up in N.C. and do something about this poor girls death?It's just unreal to know there's nothing being done!!!!please tell me someone is doing something for her.

cajun said...

I'm with you J.B. However, it doesn't really matter to me anymore as to the cause of death. We all know it was homicide. What matters is the refusal of Rex Gore to search any further. It appears that he's covering up for someone higher up. He could announce a change in his decision today and I could care less. When we figure out the "why" of his refusal, we'll figure out the who.

Elaine said...

Hello to all! Forgive my tardiness for answering, things have been crazy here. For those of you not in the area, the sheriff, who has been under federal grand jury investigation since June of last year, had charges brought against him by over 20 of his own officers for misconduct. Our books arrived on Valentine's Day and this proceeding happened one month, one day later. Then the state grand jury indicted him on three counts of embezzlement and one count of obstruction of justice (not our case). He resigned on April 15th. Both sides are looking at our book for corrobaration. It is my desire that the sheriff plea bargains. Most of the officers who came out against him were over on Bald Head that night. The tv station interviewed Loy last night (Ap. 17th). Rex Gore would not comment except over the phone (not heard) and said "I hope it brings the family closure." Keep on stonewalling, Rex. If you notice the web site for Dee, you will see a new picture on the homepage. Look who's picture is in the front of the trio. ... Our family continues to be blessed by people like you who see through the lies and give us hope. The reason for the book is show what we found out. The true is there. What goes on in the dark comes to the light. And to think that the sheriff has been able to use $100,000.00 of what is left in his campaign funds to pay lawyers to fight his federal investigation. They did not bring charges against him this month either. I hope they let him swing another year. We could use $100,000.00 ourselves to go to court.

And you are right, Cajun, once we find out who they're covering for - I think we know who, we just need the proof, we'll know why.

As for the high government official, we're talking someone who was attorney general and got promoted to the top here.

Elaine said...

Please post. I welcome your comments here and at our other blog spots including a new one on Amazon.com. Just pull up the book and scroll down to the bottom.

Elaine said...

Cajun, yes, the drug agent who allegedly had the 'broken' ankle told us that she was shot here indicating a place behind her right ear, and "it came out here," indicating her left temple. As we know, that was not correct. He told us this information Saturday morning within hours after she had been found dead.

Hi Elaine,
No apologies needed. I've been keeping up with the current events in Brunswick County through the online news and am aware of the ongoing issues with the sherrif. If it helps any at all, I now think of Davina every night when I crawl into bed out here and try to figure out the mystery.
I was living in Brunswick County at the time of her death and remember hearing about it on the radio station. Even then, it didn't sound right to me. It's so weird to actually have the book, the facts, and her picture to go along with something I heard about way back then. Keep up the good work and my prayers are with all of Davina's family and friends.

Matthew said...

I was living in Southport at the time Dee was killed in the line of duty. I have always felt that she was murdered,do to the fact she was starting to find out about the drugs that were on the island and just so happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time that October night. The sad thing was how the island responded. I mean they didn't even act like it was a person that had gotten killed, they were to worried about a wedding the next day and was worried that the island would get a bad reputation. Its sad to know that here was a young lady who had taken the job to protect BHI and when she was murdered, they swept the case under the rug, trying to protect themselves.
Keep up the great work with the website. I check it about every other day just to see if anything is new. The whole family is in my thoughts and prayers. Take care and God Bless.

Elaine said...

Matthew, do please keep checking back. Sometimes things happen so fast, I get behind posting. We have a major writer find the Amazon blog and asked for a copy of the book be sent. His blog reaches almost 3,000 people from all over the world daily. Just the kind of thing we need.

Elaine said...

BTW, at http://outwiththree.blogspot.com/ I am posting the reviews and my responses where necessary (because Brunswick Beacon won't publish it) to the book.

Amazed said...

The book was great! I as a LEO think that it is a shame that the crime scene investigation was handled the way it was.....rookies would have done a better job. Its still hard to beleive knowing how the SBI is that they would have been associated with anything like this however considering who their boss is oh well.......but to think that they still have to lay down and sleep at night. The law says that you do not have to obey an unlawful order but if you do so knowing it to be wrong then you are just as guilty.......I guess it will be interesting to see what Hewitt will do now that the feds are on him hot and heavy......I alway heard that had it not been for Hewitts support of Gore, Gore may not be in the position he is in....so since Gore has stuck in Hewitt, will Hewitt keep what/all he knows about things to himself or will he rat all the pest out.....will be interesting to see what happens...........I do hope that one day someone will start to feel guilt and come forward with the truth and clear this young ladies name.

I've added this to the list of blogs that I follow, so that anyone who examines my profile, will have a chance to see the link.

In the past few days, this has mostly been Animal Rights Terrorists who want to kill me, but I think I have some sane readers as well.

Keep up the pressure, it looks like they might be cracking!

ElanaC said...

I have just moved to Oak Island this past year, and your book caught my eye in a local bookstore..First, I wish to extend my condolences to you and your family on your loss...Second...this book is amazing that BHI has allowed this to go on as long as it has...I SMELL A COVERUP!!! My son is a police officer in a Western NC town, and he read parts of this book and he was dumbfounded...He spoke to some local officer's on a recent trip here, and they stated BHI does not want POLICE officer's, they want COMMUNITY support...I am assuming that the RICH can buy their way out of anything...I wish your family the best in finding the TRUTH to what really happened!!!

Even though this is Jan. 2011, I know for a FACT, that "planes" used to fly up the Lockwood Folly River(s), and Cape fear in the Early hours of the morning, NO running lights, treetop level...
No doubt, up the Cape Fear also, (I was a commerical fisherman whom Shrimped at night at times in these rivers), I'd hear the plane(s), (around the 3 week of each month), catch maybe a glimpse, before it was gone...
NO Doubt,Her MURDER; that this was, a cover-up for a drug load incoming...

Allen Gilbert said...

Praying for them to re-open this case... I will help in any way I can. I too knew Davina in JR. High school and feel horrible that I missed all of this. God Bless the Buff Family.
