Tragic Discovery: Body of Kidnapping Victim Found in Birmingham

Birmingham Police have confirmed a heartbreaking development in the case of missing person Nakita Davidson, Mother of 4 children. Davidson’s body was discovered on Friday afternoon at approximately 3:18 p.m. on 18th Place SW.

The investigation began on Thursday, April 11, following a two-vehicle collision at 6th Avenue SW and MLK. Police arrived to find evidence suggesting a possible assault or shooting, but no one was present at the scene.

Authorities believe Davidson, (40), may have been injured during the collision and subsequently abducted. Her vehicle, a 2008 Saturn Outlook, was reportedly driven away from the scene.

Friday afternoon, a breakthrough occurred when the U.S. Marshals and Crime Reduction Team located a burgundy vehicle in a wooded, dead-end area. Upon entering the vehicle, Birmingham Police sadly discovered Davidson’s body.

Later that evening, at approximately 6:40 p.m., a suspect identified as Cedric Dewayne Robertson was arrested in the 2100 block of Northland Avenue SW in connection with the case. He was said to have possibly been a boyfriend she was trying to separate from.

This tragic turn of events has left the community in mourning and authorities continue to investigate to bring those responsible to justice.
