A man is facing charges for offering heroin to a 15-year-old Fairfield girl in exchange for sex on the day she went missing. She was found stabbed to death the next day.
Lt. Kevin Haddix with Fairfield Police says George Donald Davis II, 24, exchanged a series of text messages with Chelsea Johnson on April 15. Haddix says Davis offered Johnson 'dog,' a street name for heroin, in exchange for sex. He did not say what happened afterwards.
Through a recording of a preliminary hearing for Davis on May 31st in the Fairfield Municipal Court, police Det. Mike Woodall revealed details of a text message conversation between Davis and Chelsea Johnson.
"A portion of the text messages go into Mr. Davis requesting sexual intercourse with the victim juvenile in lieu of bringing her drugs," said Woodall.
Woodall says the text message conversation lasted two hours.
"He did arrange to bring the victim juvenile several 1/10 of heroin where she was to meet him," said Woodall.
Police have in evidence both Chelsea's cell phone and Davis' cell phone and investigators say Davis knows the Johnson family.
Davis was in Butler County Jail on Friday under $250,000 bond. He was already in the jail for an unrelated case. He's charged with importuning and drug trafficking for the Chelsea Johnson case.
No one is charged in Johnson's death. Her mother reported her missing the morning of April 16. Her body was found that evening, about two miles from her home.
