Deric Davis missing
Deric Davis was reported missing by his brother on December 21, almost 2 weeks after he was last seen by members of his family.
His brother reported that he had not reported to his job at Amguard Security for weeks. Winbush allegedly told members of Davis’s family that she had last heard from him on December 14, according to a criminal complaint obtained by PEOPLE.
The complaint alleges that Winbush pretended to help search for Davis, even calling local hospitals to see if he had been admitted.
When Pittsburgh detectives went to Winbush’s home to verify her whereabouts, they found a gruesome scene.
“Detectives knocked on the door and while waiting for a response, one of the detectives noticed a mound on the ground next to the front porch and steps, covered by a deflated air mattress,” the complaint says. Detectives also noticed the smell of a decomposing body. They looked under the mattress and discovered Deric’s body. Deric had been placed in garbage bags wrapped with duct tape. ”
According to the complaint, Winbush was found in the basement sitting on the ledge.
“Within this same room, officers located a blood-soaked umbrella behind a panel that was leaning against a wall,” the complaint says.
Later, the police found drops of blood on the steps leading to her second-floor apartment.

Winbush allegedly told police that she had an argument with Davis that she “turned violent.”
She “She said that Deric physically assaulted her by repeatedly hitting her and suffocating her,” according to the complaint. She “she said that at some point during the assault, Deric went to the kitchen and got a knife, then attacked her with the knife. Winbush said she was able to disarm Deric and then stab him in self-defense. ”
She told police that she “could not remember anything that happened after she stabbed Deric and claimed to have no idea how it came out,” the complaint says. “Winbush described everything after the stabbing as ‘a blur.’
It was not immediately clear whether Winbush hired an attorney. She has not yet pleaded guilty to the charges against her.
