Rest in Peace Detective A. Worth Davis. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Houston, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your ancestors. I also Pray that the hounds of hell are gnawing on the scum responsible for your murder. May His screams of anguish rise up from the lake of fire to warn other evil doers of their impending fate.

Amen.
