Is he from here originally? I have met no one that knew him. I remember when this happened. I thought then that he did it. I would like to have a few minutes alone with him and show him the big end of a baseball bat.

Font Size: NASHVILLE, Tenn.– The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has arrested a Cumberland County man
for child abuse that led to his infant daughter’s death last year after he was indicted by the Cumberland County
Grand Jury Thursday morning.

William Allen Davenport, 39, of 132 Buck Creek Road, Crossville, Tenn., was indicted on one count of felony murder and one count of aggravated child abuse.

On November 12, 2010, Davenport called Cumberland County 911 to report that his two-month-old daughter, Destiny Davenport, was not breathing.

She was transported to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, Tenn. and died three days later.

Both medical personnel at the hospital and the autopsy indicated the infant died from abuse.

The TBI investigated Destiny’s death with the Cumberland County
Sheriff’s Office and the 13th Judicial District Attorney General’s Office.

On Thursday, Davenport was booked into the Cumberland County Jail on $750,000 bond.

Why must you judge my brother in Christ his family is already hurting and your fowl comments do not help the healing process only hinders it. Even if you know this father for past transgrations this father walked with Jesus before his baby girl was born. This father completed his family with his wife and children. Please leave judgement for our lord and not in the eye of man. I will pray that no family has to endure what his family has endured.

I have known Allen for 27yrs he is a very good friend of mine and he did nothing to his baby girl but love and care for her..Everyone is so quick to judge without knowing both sides of the story.Destiny was born with medical issues and that is the reason this little angel isn't here today not because of anything either of her parents did or didn't do...I have daughters myself and if I thought for 1 second Allen truely did this I certainly wouldn't be on here supporting him.

First off i got a call about all you people that have nothing better to do with your life then to sit and judge and talk smack!! The sad thing is that you are to big of a word i will not say on here and stoop to your level!!!!But just to make things clear this was OUR child!!!!! He loved her more then anything. Allen was a great father and daddy!!! This child changed so much in him i couldnt ask for a better husband or daddy for my kids!!Unlike some of the true deadbeats. There was things medically wrong when she was born with the fontanol on her. But thats right now days people are so fast to judge before they hear the whole truth shows how these people are thay will be the ones to face their judgement day with the higher power thats out of our hands robin and wes. To all that dont know everything that was wrong with our daughter when we delivered her im sorry your life is so miserable you have to get on here and talk some smack about MY FAMILY and dont have the guts to say your real name.and want to hide behind a screen cause you can come see me. EVERYTHING i have backs up what really happened o thats right you were not there in our life. So you can keep talking just remember there is a mother and 2 other children that are having to fight to get the truth out!!!!I would not wish this on my worst enemy but i know he didnt do what TBI and DCS and county investigator is saying so you guys keep living your life so miserable and feel the need to talk about others family all you want but you have no clue what this family is going thru. Cause believe me if i thought he did it as the mother i would have killed him and i would be the one sitting in jail for the rest of my life but i know the truth.This just shows everyones mentality and and how low their life is.
