NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk police are asking for any information residents may have on an unsolved homicide from 1989.

On the evening of Saturday, Oct. 10, 1989, two officers discovered a body face down on Grove Street in South Norwalk in a pool of blood.

The victim was identified as Donovan 'Silence' Davis, and an autopsy determined he had been shot in the back of the neck with a shotgun, according to police.

According to witnesses, a disturbance was heard in the street and a black four-door sedan, either an Oldsmobile or Buick, was observed with three or four men inside. Witnesses told police that two of the men were black, while another was Hispanic. The sedan stopped at Grove Street to confront Davis, according to police reports.

From there, stories differ. One witness said Davis was confronted by the shooter, a black male who allegedly said 'tell me who it was' before shooting Davis, according to police reports.

Another witness said that the shooter was a Hispanic man in jeans and a jeans jacket, police said.

Other information received included the statement that a black male named Eric had shot Davis over a money dispute, and that it was for someone named Cleveland Thompson, who was incarcerated at the time, according to police reports.

Anybody with information can contact Lt. Art Weisgerber at (203) 854-3028 or aweisgerber@norwalkct.org, or send anonymous tips online through the Norwalk police website at www.norwalkpd.com or by text by typing 'NPD' into the text field, followed by the message and sending it to CRIMES (274637)
