Davina Garrison, 1963—2005
Her body was found near the railroad tracks off of the waterfront on Thanksgiving Day. The Chief Medical Examiner, Dr Richard Harruff, responded to the scene on this holiday. Her body had been set on fire to cover up the murder. Women in Black did a cleansing ritual there.
