WINTER PARK, Fla. — Police have announced they have a suspect in custody in connection to the execution style murders of two teenagers whose bodies were found burning alongside a popular walking trail.
Last month, some bicyclist riding along the Cady Way Trail found the burning bodies of 16-year-old Nicholas Presha and 18-year-old Jeremy Stewart, best friends who both attended Winter Park High School.
It is now being revealed that police have a suspect and have had him in custody since two days after the boys were found. His name is Jessie Davis and it may come as a shock, judging by his picture, but the 30-year-old is an alleged drug dealer with a lengthy criminal history. He also lives one mile from where the murders occurred.
Davis was arrested on April 17 on charges of violation of probation, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, carrying a concealed firearm, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery. These charges are not related to the deaths of Presha and Stewart.…Continue Reading

Nicholas is also the son of Bernie Presha, an investigator for the state attorney’s office who said his son snuck out of the house at around 2 a.m. Sunday, and that he had been unable to find him when he went out looking for him.
Residents of the nearby Sun Bay Apartments complex reported hearing gunshots early that morning, and one said they heard arguing outside their door just hours before the bodies were found.…Continue Reading
