Darren Doyle, story:
The man killed when a tree fell on his residence on Friday has been identified, according to a family member.
Dakota Davis, age 23, was killed Friday when a tree fell on his apartment behind the home of his grandmother on Rocky Hill Road, Penny Mills Huddleston.
Ms. Huddelston gave a statement to the Edmonson Voice with information concerning the incident.
"(Friday), the winds had somewhat calmed down, then out of nowhere a loud roar and a huge boom happened, my mobile home shook my pictures fell off the wall," she said. "I made it to my laundry room and seen the tree was down, I couldn’t open my door because the tree was on my deck and on Dakota's building. We jumped out the front and ran around but the tree was so large we couldn’t do anything."
Officials said the tree crushed the small apartment and Davis was killed inside. The coroner's report on Friday night stated that Davis was 24 years old, however, Ms. Huddleston corrected that and stated he was 23.
She said that while she is his biological grandmother, she had raised him since he was 3 weeks old.
"He would give anyone the shirt off his back," she stated. "Always wanting a hug, and man could he talk, he never met a stranger. He was autistic and an avid gamer, I was by blood his grandmother but I have had Dakota since he was 3 weeks old. I am going to miss him so much."
