Slain cop’s case stalls

MURDERED: Julian Davidson, 30

Victim's family outraged that police have made no arrests for the father of two's murder.

The family and colleagues of a murdered law enforcement officer say they are disappointed that police have not yet arrested his killer.

Julian Davidson, 30, was shot outside a colleague’s home on August 7 when he went home to help his sick wife.

It’s alleged six shots were fired through the window before Julian was dragged out of the car, presumably for his firearm, although he was unarmed.

Despite the City offering a R50 000 reward for information, it seems police are no closer to making an arrest in the case.

Julian’s frustrated mother, Adele Davidson, 51, says the family is desperate for closure.

“The investigating officer personally told me that they have a suspect but they want to arrest all three suspects at the same time,” she says.

“So must that one suspect go and commit another murder so long?”

Adele also had strong words for her son’s bosses.

“I am so gatvol of the City,” she says.

“They only gave my son a beautiful send-off but until now the Davidsons never got a blue bean!”

But the City’s JP Smith denied this and says: “The City created a fund that makes a short-term payment immediately available for immediate relief.”

Smith tells the Daily Voice that Davidson and his wife cancelled their policies before he died.

“He did not have a will at the time of his death and all his money is with the executor of his estate,” he says.
