Lei Patricia Nichols is here
November 24, 2011
Made her way into this world Nov.21st @
4:31pm! I went in to be induced @ 6 am and
labored for about 10 hours. I had to have
my epi redone because it moved and I
started to be able to feel every
contraction but not my legs. I had told
the nurses that I could feel everything
from the waist up,yet all they did was
give me more medicine in the epi. It
wasn't until I was in tears telling them
it hurt that they decided to take a look
and sure enough it had moved. I had it
redone,by then I could not feel my legs at
all. After my new epi started to work I
decided to take a nap and rest up until it
was time to push. I was put on my side by
the nurse,had just settled into my nap
when the doctor came to check me. She went
to check and almost instantly said
"There's the baby's head,it's time to
push." My legs were totally dead to the
world and wouldn't even stay in the
stirrups,so my DH had to hold my left leg
on there while the nurse held the other. I
pushed for 31 mins which would have been a
shorter time if I wouldn't have had to
wait for big contractions to come.
In August of
2014, this beautiful little girl was taken to
the Emergency Room of Arkansas Children's
Hospital. Naomi Nichols had a broken arm and
the staff at the hospital felt the need to
report it to the State Police's Crimes Against
Less than one month before her death, Naomi
was once again taken to the hospital with a
hematoma on her cheek and it was claimed by
family members that she had fallen on a marble
coffee table. The next medical attention Naomi
would get, would be in October of 2014 when
she was admitted to Sparks Regional Medical
Center in Forth Smith, Arkansas suffering from
severe internal injuries with suspicions that
she had been beaten and raped, Naomi ended up
In February of 2015, a Crime Laboratory report
held the truth about the severe abuse that
Naomi had been going through for the past two
months of her life. Prosecutor Daniel Shue
filed first degree murder charges against
Naomi's Uncle Cohen J. Davis, who was 24 years
old at the time and was been being held
without bail at the Sebastian County Detention
Center since Naomi's condition showed she had
been raped. Cohen had been arrested in
November of 2014 on suspicion that she had
raped this little Angel and then in January of
2014, the Medical Examiner's report said that
she died of multiple blunt for injuries and
cause her of death was listed as homicide.
Family members claimed that she had fallen
down the stairs and that is how she had gotten
Cohen had brought Naomi to the hospital
claiming that she wasn't acting quite right,
she was not responding to him and so he had
put her into a cold shower in an attempt to
wake her up, he said she began to vomit while
in the shower so he brought her in. Hospital
staff tried to save her life and had to
resuscitate her several times during a surgery
that failed to save her life. Naomi had severe
internal injuries as well as bruises all over
her body. The Doctor who did her autopsy said
that Naomi had sustained her injuries within a
few hours prior to her death and it was said
that Cohen was the only person with Naomi at
the time of the injuries.
Courtney Nichols was shocked by what had
happened to her daughter:
just want to know what happened to her and
I'm sure, you know, we're
find out. We're hearing all kinds of
different things. We just wanna
the truth. Obviously, we didn't think he
was capable of anything.
nothing that I would want to say to him
and I haven't talked to him
anything's happened.She was perfect. She
liked to be a Tom boy, but
loved her dresses. And of course we miss
her, we all miss her"
An interview with Cohen as he was being lead
in to the Police station is below:
Davis, you are accused of raping your two year
old niece. Did you do it?
All the evidence points towards you, according
to this arrest warrant.
you read the other reports? They say I'm
horrible. None if it is true.
What other reports.
Did you kill her?
Who is responsible for her death?
No one is.
How did she die?
What would you say to her parents?
I've already spoken to them.
What did they say?
A Surgeon, Dr. Zbigniew Beyga said Naomi's
duodenum was complete severed and that the
amount of force that caused the injuries to
Naomi was equal so someone lying on their back
and having someone else stomp on them with
their heals as hard as they could.
When asked about the earlier visits to the
Emergency Room, Cohen didn't like the
immediately got defensive and said; I've
already been cleared of that"
Cohen said that Naomi fell off of a step stool
in the bathroom and that his daughter had
grabbed her arm to prevent her from falling
and ended up twisting her arm and he said that
there always seems to be some kind of false
allegations made against him and his family.
Cohen gave Police permission to search his
house and then refused to say anything else,
on the advice of his Lawyer, he then decided
to withdraw permission to search the home.
Jennifer Davis, Cohen's wife, also refused to
speak to Police on the advice of his Lawyer.
Jennifer did say that she had been out of town
attending college and was called by her
mother-in-law who said that Naomi had fallen
and Jennifer would need to come home. She was
not told what happened until October 15, 2014
and then she was told that Naomi was carrying
her toys upstairs and told Cohen she wanted a
drink, he told her there was a drink
downstairs and she needed to wait a minute.
Naomi supposedly tried to get the drink
herself and ended up falling and when Cohen
went to see what happened, she was trying to
hold on to her tricycle and pull herself back
up. Jennifer asked why he gave her a cold
shower and he said that had been how he was
taught to do things and Jennifer said that
whenever one of the children was sick with a
fever, headache or any illness, Cohen would
run a warm bath for them. Jennifer did say
that while the evidence didn't add up to an
accident, she believed what Cohen was telling
Police were not able to search the house,
however, they did search the trash cans and
found three pairs of little girls underwear
which appeared to be soaked in blood as well
as a Pull Up diaper which also contained
blood. When a search warrant was granted,
Police said they found seven boxes of feminine
one adult female lived in the house.
Considering the blood soaked underwear
were in the trash two days earlier and
given the number and assortment of
products, it appeared to me that they were
likely used to hide severe
suffered by the victim"
Captain Jamie Hammond
Doctor. Jennifer Forsythe said that injuries
had happened within hours of her death and
that she had extensive bruising all over her
body with large numbers of bruises on her
head, chest and abdomen and extensive vaginal
tearing, superficial rectal lacerations with
extensive soft tissue hemorrhaging through her
pelvis which is associated with vaginal
trauma. Tissue samples showed acute, chronic
vaginal trauma and that had potentially
happened weeks before she died.
Of course it came out that Cohen had been
treated for PTSD by the U.S. Department Of
Veterans Affairs for over three years and that
he was living on a VA disability of 80% due to
the PTSD. Does that sound cold? All I can say
is I don't care what he went through, he had
the peace of mind to cover up what he was
doing so he OBVIOUSLY
knew it was wrong, so BOO
on the PTSD! Imagine the horrible
trauma this little girl went through at the
hands of a man trusted to take care of her,
imagine her crying and screaming and possibly
begging him to stop and he just kept going and
going. What Naomi went through is far worse
than anything he could have been through. I am
not saying that what military people go
through is not bad, because it is, however, if
you feel the need to rape, abuse and torture a
child, you can go get yourself some help for
that, the child you are raping, abusing and
torturing has no ability to go get some help!
There were three other children, ages seven,
five and four, in the home at the time of
Naomi's death and they were removed and placed
into protective custody with the Department Of
Human Services. I am unable to find any
information as for why Naomi was living with
this man and his wife.
A court date was set in this case For April 8,
