19-year-old James Eric Davis Jr. shot and killed his parents, James Davis Sr. and Diva Davis inside his dorm room at Central Michigan University on Friday morning March 2nd.
According to reports, a friend of Eric said he was arguing with his parents over money and his tuition fee.
The friend wrote,
“Eric’s parents wanted to stop paying his tuition so that they could save for retirement. Eric was upset that they asked him to take out a student loan.”
Another friend, Deantre DeYoung told the Chicago Tribune:
“He was a good kid, always… You would never expect something like this to come from James.”
Eric Davis Sr., a National Guard veteran who toured in Iraq, worked as a police officer in Bellwood, Illinois. His mother was a real estate broker.
