Fairbanks police continue investigation of stabbing death

Posted: Friday, June 21, 2002

FAIRBANKS (AP) -- Fairbanks police are continuing their search for a man who left a bar with a 21-year-old Fairbanks woman less than an hour before she was found fatally stabbed.

Mahogany Davis was found outside her apartment May 11. Detectives said a neighbor who saw Davis stagger out of her apartment called police at 4:13 a.m. Police found Davis collapsed on the ground.

Police were able to talk to Davis and obtain information from her before she was taken to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, where she died.

Detectives believe the man will help them fill in events leading up to Davis' stabbing inside her South Cushman Street apartment after the two reportedly left the Greyhound Bar at about 3:30 a.m. closing time.

''They were seen holding hands and walking toward the door,'' Detective Tara Tippett said.

Police don't have the man's name. He's described as a black man with a short haircut in his late 20s to mid-30s, standing about 6 feet tall.

So far, police have made no arrests.

Detectives still want to question the more than 100 people who were at the bar and may have seen Davis before she left that night.

Davis, left three young sons, age 4 years, 20 months and 3 weeks.
