Biography

American oil heir and former billionaire. He is the wealthiest man to have stood trial for murder in the United States.

In August 1976, Davis was charged with the murder of his estranged wife's boyfriend and her daughter. Davis' wife had filed for divorce in 1974, but in 1976 the divorce proceedings were still ongoing and the divorce had not been made official. The victims had been shot dead, and Davis' wife wounded, by a gunman who entered their home in Fort Worth on August 2, 1976. In November 1977, after what has been called "one of the most expensive murder investigations and trials in Texas history," a jury found Davis not guilty.

In 1978, Davis was arrested again, this time for allegedly hiring a hitman to murder his wife as well as the judge overseeing their ongoing divorce litigation. Davis was ultimately acquitted.

Davis reportedly lost most of his oil fortune in the recession of the 1980s, and eventually declared bankruptcy.
