The boys were Jermey hankins and steve mays and the law has questioned them but they were never considered suspects. I've heard the Sherman dude was involved but idk for sure. He died when he was in 10th grade. I still remember him well. The story was he died from an overdose and the others got scared and dumped his body. Mays did not own that property but they did have a deer camp close by on public property.

Don't know anything about a party that night, but he was camping with the Mays boy and the Hankins boy on Mays' property. A car pulled up sometime during the night and David got in the car and left and never returned. Mays and Hankins WERE both questioned by officers and detectives and were NOT suspects.(They had nothing to do with it.) The land in Waterloo where the body was found is NOT Mays land and there was not a deer camp close.(Deer season is in Fall/Winter.) Don't know anything about the Sherman guy or the others mentioned.

He did not die of an overdose. He was beaten to death. His front teeth were gone!! They found his teeth several yards from his body. He did not do drugs. I know his Aunt very well. I went to school with him as well. When people first started talking about it, one of the boys involved with it, I believe it came from Steve Mays mouth,he made the comment about him being in his natural habitat. Shortly after they found David in the woods in Waterloo. Now why would he say something like that if he wasn't involved. It's sick these pigs still have not been brought to justice!!!!

I was told the same two people knew something about it as well. Which one was it that made the comment about him being in his natural habitat?

We need to call unsolved mystries and see if they would investegate this case. this case has not been closed because it has not been solved.i know with out a doubt the names mentioned on here know exactley what happened to david, and no there was no car that came along , that was their story they made up to cover their asses.

I also heard of a girl named Amy, that knew something about it. When we went to school that Monday I believe it was, her back window was busted out of her car. People were saying she was involved with it too.

I have no personal ties to this case other than a dear friend of mine was very close to this boy. She is one of the most awesome, straight-up honest people I have ever met. Seeing the pain in her eyes when she mentioned this killed me, and I know it must be hell on her, his other TRUE friends and his family not to have closure. I see that many people have posted on here, and what a great way to give someone a (new) lead. I just wanted to comment on here in order to bump this post back up to the top and to keep it running. There are too many people around here that may know something. Unburden yourself and post if you are holding onto any helpful information. Thanks.

I really wish and pray that they would once and for all find out who did this to him. David was very kind and good person. Why did the kids that did this to him get away with it? He will always be remembered!

I'm glad to know that so many ppl still think of David and want justice for him. Its been 17 years the 23rd day of April when he was killed in the year 1994. His body was found May 6th 1994 out at waterloo, off of one of the county roads, thrown into a ravine. He had lay there for 2 weeks. his clothes had been changed. Muddy ones were returned to his mother on Sunday, by steve mays and jeremy hankins. Both of those families got attorneys to keep those boys from being questioned. To this day, they have NEVER been questioned. The rumor of overdose was just that a rumor. David died from lack of oxygen. He was suffocated. That was the autopsy report. There were no drugs in his body. The cover up came from the prosecutors office, from one of the judges, and from certain members of Lawrence Counts "finest". Roy Smith was sheriff at the time, and was not in volved in the coverup. I can tell more of the truth of the what happened after if anyone is interested. But the what happened after doesn't change what happened that nite, or tell us who is truly responsible. Truthfully, no one may ever tell.... But this I can tell you. They will stand before God and Answer. And when that happens, they will be punished. Thanks all of you for keeping this going. David deserves that. His family deserves that. Those people who are responsible didnt just take one life. They destroyed several

It's been way to long and his family and this town deserves justice. Don't understand why nothing has been done, with all the info that is on here. I'm sure it's not all true but a really good start. What has to b done for them to reopen a case? It seems like everytime someone gets killed in this area it goes unsolved, why?

I contacted Spike TV thats where the unsolved myteries is at, and left a messsageon computer.I think more of you need to do the same.The answer to(i AGREE) they get away with murder cause the local official cover up for certain people and thts why they get away with stuff that they should nt have. I wont change until people demand it to. We all have voices and we need to make some noise and be heard, for David and his family.
