JACKSON, Miss. – A warrant has been issued for Ricky Davis in the death of his own 17-month-old daughter.
Ra’Kayla Silman was taken to the hospital Saturday with head injuries. Detectives said during their preliminary investigation, they were told the child fell and hurt herself while in the care of Davis. However, doctors said Silman’s injuries did not appear to be consistent with a fall. After her death Tuesday, an autopsy was completed and the child’s death was ruled a homicide.
Silman will be charged with capital murder once he is located. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police.
