Home » Brittany Davis, 32: Vanished In 2020, Fiancé Charged With Murder
For months, the Greenville Police Department pleaded with the public for help in locating Brittany Davis. The 32-year-old vanished two days before Valentine’s Day on February 12, 2020, but it would take her loved ones another month before they officially filed a missing person report, because many believed she was still alive. Sadly, this case would result in devastating news after her remains were located over one year later.
The last time Brittany was seen was either at the Bucks Racks & Ribs restaurant in Greenville or while being dropped off at home following the outing, depending on what reports you read. The South Carolina resident was reportedly living with her fiancé, 42-year-old Michael Lee Wilkerson, from Lawrenceville, Georgia, at the time and he was a clear person of interest throughout the investigation.
In April 2021, human remains were located in a wooded area in northeast Georgia, and later, they were determined to belong to Brittany Davis. Wilkerson was arrested during a traffic stop in August 2021 and a report by PEOPLE in September 2021 stated that Brittany’s cause of death was not yet known. Investigators speculate that Brittany was a victim of homicide around the time she went missing.
An even more twisted fact to this case is that Brittany’s mother Melanie Holliman shared with FOX Carolina that from February to March 2020, she continued to receive text messages from her daughter’s phone. Melanie believed it was Brittany and the last message stated that her daughter was taking a trip to Puerto Rico. Police allege that this was to make the loved ones of Brittany Davis believe that she was still alive after she was already deceased.
Wilkerson has been charged with murder.
“Brittany was a shining light and for her to die like this it’s just heartbreaking,” former coworker, Brian Paiz, told WSPA. “People pass away of cancer or they pass away in a car wreck or something like that. You can kind of know what it was. But to not know where she was and how she passed away, I think that was the biggest thing that really just hurt everybody.”
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Greenville City Police Department at (864) 467-5548 or their local authorities. The agency case number is 2-20-19033.
