Family seeks answers after mysterious death of son Jordan Davenport
A family is still grappling with the mysterious death of Jordan Davenport, a loving father of three who was found dead in a Texas lake last month, ABC 13 reports.
On Sunday, the family and friends of Davenport, congregated at the lake, near Cypress, where Davenport was last seen on Oct. 31. Together they remembered their loved one yet agonized over the puzzling circumstances that led to Davenport’s death.
“He loved this place,” said Jordan’s father Kenneth Downing. “And to have to come here, for a place he loved so much and lose his life, it’s senseless.”
“It’s not fair to us this happened to him,” said Jordan’s mother Tanette Davenport-Downing. “We just want to know exactly what happened and why. He didn’t deserve this. My son is a good man and he wasn’t treated so that night.”
According to police, Davenport dropped a friend off at a Halloween party on Oct. 31 in the Town Lake area. That’s where the trail gets cold and police are still trying to piece together the circumstances. After the disappearance of the 29-year-old over the weekend family and friends started circulating flyers and became increasingly concerned when he didn’t show up for work on the following Monday.
Davenport’s body was discovered in the lake days later. There was trauma to his body that suggests that he was beaten.
“We raised our children to be respectful and good people,” Tanette said. “And they will not be anywhere they were not invited.”
The family is still struggling and trying to get answers and ask that anyone with information, report it to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, where they can make an anonymously tip.
“We’re not doing too well,” Kenneth said. “We still need answers. We understand it’s an ongoing process. There’s a big void in our life. We’re still missing our son.”
