Davis In More Hot Water Over Bones

More trouble for Joshua Davis.  Davis was originally arrested by Angles Camp Police on November 22, when a human skull was found in the vehicle he was driving.   Davis’s latest brush with the law came on Friday when authorities served a search warrant on his property off Old Franke Mine Road in Murphys.   Some bones were located on the property; however they do not appear to be human remains.   Several cell phones, and other electronic devices were seized, as well as several types of weapons and ammunition that Davis is prohibited from possessing.   Further investigation will determine whether or not the bones recovered are human.   During the search, Davis told the investigating officer that he found the skull at a construction site in Angels Camp.   Deborah Grimes, of the Calaveras County Miwok Tribe was notified, and she is currently spearheading efforts to determine if the location where Davis recovered the skull is a Native American burial site.   Construction work at the site has stopped until that determination can be made.   Davis was booked into the Calaveras County jail and two other people that were detained during the service of the search warrant were released.   The investigation will continue, to determine the origin of the additional bones that were found, as well as whether there is any information related to this investigation on any of the seized electronic devices.
