Davila claims when he sat on the bed, the car seat fell to the floor with King Jay, causing the baby to land face-first on the floor. He may have also hit his head on a dresser, the affidavit said.
A large bump over the baby's eye began to form and Davila said he was afraid to call 911. He said when he checked on King Jay a few hours later, the baby was dead, according to the affidavit.
Davila led police to the open field near Castle Lance, where investigators dug up a black backpack with what appeared to be a baby's body wrapped in a blanket, according to an arrest affidavit.
"I think when the story started to unravel is when he started to break down," McManus said when asked why he thought Davila led police to his son's body. "It seemed like a strong story to him, but it got weaker and weaker as time went on."
A witness told police Jan. 3 he overheard Davila telling his mother and King Jay's paternal grandmother, Beatrice Sampayo, about his son falling and being injured. When Davila showed up the next day, the witness said he tried to go see King Jay and Davila told him, "Get the f--- back in the house." The witness said he then saw Davila's cousin, Angie Torres, look into Davila's car and she had a "shocked look on her face."
Another witness told police he saw Davila and Sampayo in the driveway "visibly upset and crying" and hugging each other. A third witness, who was staying at Davila's house, told police he heard King Jay crying Jan. 3 and then saw Davila carrying his son in his car seat the next morning, according to the affidavit.
