COLD CASE: Nathaniel Davis (2003)

Nathaniel Davis (2003)

On 03-08-2003, in the early morning hours, 25-year-old Nathaniel Davis was shot multiple times by unknown suspects, while in his vehicle engaged in the trafficking of crack cocaine on MacPhersonville Road in Yemassee.

Crime scene investigation led to the recovery of a large amount of crack cocaine in Davis’s vehicle.  An eyewitness, Patricia Cooper, who accompanied Davis in his vehicle, was unable to provide the identities of the suspects.  She described the suspects as three black males driving in a green Buick, but it is believed she was withholding information about their identities.  Cooper was ultimately charged with the trafficking offense, as she was complicit in the proposed drug deal.

It was determined through the investigation; Davis was a high-level and well-known drug dealer and was believed targeted for this reason.


A Reward of Up to $2500 is offered for information leading to an arrest in any Beaufort County Cold Case.
