Meet SAMANTHA DAVIS and GREGORY JEAN!!!
Saturday morning, November 30, CLAYTON COUNTY couple GREGORY JEAN, 37, and SAMANTHA JOY DAVIS, 42, were arrested and charged with FALSE IMPRISONMENT, CHILD CRUELTY, and OBSTRUCTION after CLAYTON COUNTY POLICE Found GREGORY JEAN'S Missing 13-Year-Old SON hidden in a compartment behind a false wall in a closet of a home near JONESBORO, GA.
AJC reports CLAYTON COUNTY POLICE first went to the home late Friday night to check on the child, who had been reported missing by his mother in Florida four years ago, but the pair denied knowledge of the child.
Officers returned to the home on Duke Court several hours later and found the boy in the hidden compartment after the teen texted his location to his mother.
Here’s the latest in the case:
- A CLAYTON COUNTY MAGISTRATE JUDGE has DENIED BOND for GREGORY JEAN and SAMANTHA DAVIS, ordering that they be held in jail until their next court appearance.
- Police were awaiting court documents from HENRY COUNTY to confirm that SAMANTHA JOY DAVIS is the same SAMANTHA J. DAVIS that was convicted of child cruelty in Henry County in 2006 after cutting off part of her own 6-year-old son’s tongue with hot scissors after he talked back to her.
The attorney who represented the Henry County woman eight years ago told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the woman arrested Saturday in Clayton County is indeed the same SAMANTHA J. DAVIS.
- Neighbors told Channel 2 that they never saw the boy leave the home the family was renting, even to go to school, but did see him outside the home, often working in the yard. He was always under the close eye of a parent, according to neighbors.
