Vance deputies investigate man's death

Posted December 1, 2008

— Vance County sheriff's deputies are investigating the death of Joseph Arrington Davis III, of 4489 Stagecoach Road in Oxford.

Davis' nephew, Brandon Davis, found him dead in his home Saturday evening. He appeared to have two gunshot wounds, investigators said, but the time and date of his death were unclear.

Several witnesses reported seeing Davis alive on Nov. 26, two days before he was found.

Investigators are continuing the search for a suspect and a motive in Davis's death.

    Thank you for your concern for the victims family, mamakazz04, and you are correct. Oxford is in Granville County but, since we live on Vance/Granville County Line. Oxford delivers our mail so we have an Oxford mailing address while still being a Vance County resident. We are praying for the capture of the thug or thugs responsible for such a senseless act.
