Davis jury vote told
Juror says 4 conned
United Press International
HOUSTON — One of the eight
jurors who contended T. Cullen
Davis was guilty of solicitation of
murder says the dissenting jurors
were conned by the millionaire’s re
spectable image and the presenta
tion of his defense.
Despite an oath not to reveal
which way the jury had voted, James
W. Morrison Tuesday revealed the
breakdown of the jury that deliber
ated through 43 hours and 14 votes
without reaching a verdict, causing a
mistrial to be declared.
“They wanted to believe Davis is
respectable and therefore he’s got a
nice lawyer and the good guys
couldn’t possible be the bad guys,’’
“I think this guy is a walking
bomb. I guess there’s a lot of people
in Fort Worth who think so, too.
Morrison said jury foreman Mary
Carter, 47, a medical secretary, and
jurors Vera Miller, 57, a personnel
stenographer; Helen M. Hill, 47, a
bookkeeper, and Charles Franks,
31, an engineer, resisted conviction.
He hinted defense lawyer Richard
“Racehorse” Haynes’s sex appeal
was a key.
“They would not admit to being
taken in by him,” Morrison said.
“We confronted them with that.
They were quick to say no’ — maybe
a little too quick.”
Morrison said the tapes convinced
him of Davis’s guilt.
“For me, it had to be guilty. The
tapes were the all-important thing,”
Morrison said. “They said MeCrory
controlled the conversations. He
didn’t really. It isn’t necessarily the
guy who makes the most noise.
“As far as the rest of us were con
cerned, when they talked about kill
ing people, that’s what they meant. ”
“The people who were (voting) not
guilty pretty much believed Davis’s
story and they believed Karen Mas
ter’s story about the FBI, Morrison
said, referring to testimony from the
defendant’s mistress that he was
telephoned by the FBI.
Davis testified he cooperated with
MeCrory in making audio tapes

DETROIT — The Republican Party picked a city on the rebound —
symbolic of its own presidential hopes — for its 1980 national conven
City fathers said they felt the GOP decision will help Detroit shed its
lingering image as a center of crime and racial unrest and add
momentum to its drive towards revitalization.
State Republican officials said it also could improve the image of the
“The decision to hold the convention in the Renaissance City will
help focus national attention on the progress which we have made in
revitalizing our urban areas and will underscore the resurgence of the
Republican Party, Michigan Gov. William G. Milliken said.
“It will emphasize the fact that just as Detroit is being rejuvenated,
the Republican Party is being rejuvenated.
Milliken, who was vacationing in the Virgin Islands, worked closely
with Mayor Coleman A. Young to secure the GOP bid, which was
announced Tuesday in Washington.
Young, a vice chairman of the National Democratic Committee and
one of President Carter’s closest black supporters, said he will now
concentrate on securing the Democratic convention for Detroit.
Auto magnate Henry Ford II, a major supporter of the new
downtown Renaissance Center complex that features a 1,200-room
hotel, said he also will try to convince Democrats "that Detroit is the
place to be in 1980.
The Republican convention will begin July 14, 1980, at spacious
Coho Hall, which can seat 4,400 delegates and alternates and more
than 12,000 spectators. The Democrats are expected to hold their
convention the following month.
At a news conference Tuesday, Young posed with a photograph that
showed him riding a zoo elephant — symbol of the GOP. He boasted
that Detroit, despite its poor national image, is one of the country’s five
leading convention cities.
“Through this national convention, the entire world will see that
Detroit, which once was declared dead, is indeed alive and well and
that we have recovered from the maladies of our past,” he said.
